DIY Innovation (Wed Apr 16)

"Practical Innovation" Wednesday April 16

How to move from talking, to Doing Innovation?

Organisations are attempting to do more with less in a sustainable way, while still needing to improve service delivery and profit. A tough ask, even at the best of times. The thinking that worked well enough in the past is no longer sufficient to ensure long-term survival and relevance into the future.  We can either tread water and reduce service delivery or, we can think differently and design new value-adding ways forward.

Practical Innovation has been designed to add this value.

We struggle to break free from day to day habits and procedures that can inhibit us. Yet, we all understand that to deliver the quality services that are now demanded, we need to innovate and evolve at an increasing rate. We can’t achieve this by doing the same things year in, year out.

Practical Innovation will provide participants with a range of methods to help address current organisational needs, improve business efficiency and help identify new and emergent opportunities.

Participants will learn and practice a range of practical frameworks, tools and techniques that will enable them to think and design actions in a more focused, strategic and creative manner.

“Frank  is one of our most successful trainers and facilitators and I have recently acknowledged him as one of the worldwide winners for the best, real-world, practical application of the Lateral Thinking methods. Not only is he an accredited trainer of my Lateral Thinking, Six Thinking Hats and Powers of Perception methods, he also has some renown for the practical application of the methods to real world issues. To date he has successfully applied them across a range of industry resulting in substantial commercial outcomes and is now designing unique elephant conservation projects using lateral thinking, which should save both elephant and human lives into the future.” (Edward de Bono)
