Innovation & Design Thinking

On July 22nd, Daniels Executive Education drank our own Kool-Aid and conducted a design thinking dialogue in order to redesign our Innovation and Design Thinking workshop – if we don’t innovate…how can we expect you to? Some of the key things we distilled from the volumes of observations, insights and ideas from this session include:

  • Safety and trust are enablers of innovation.
  • People want to be a part of something bigger.
  • When innovating, people need clear, transparent understanding of the value, purpose and process they will embark on.
  • People need to just get started, iterate and also like to be part of completion.
  • The Mindset for innovators is fun, playful, passionate AND challenging, confrontational, and embraces failure.
  • Innovation is better when diverse groups of people are involved – age, industry, perspective, experience, learning style.

From this – we have decided to prototype a workshop this fall where we incorporate as many of these elements as possible. So – we will be creating a safe place, using a real community challenge, providing a clear purpose and roadmap for work to be done prior, during, and after the workshop and will be doing everything we can to bring a diverse group of people together. 

Learning Objectives

This is where we start…everyone seems to be experiencing disruptive change in some way in their organization. There will be no “back to normal” after we experience all of this change. Organizations – and the individuals who lead them – need simple, repeatable, proven methodologies to transform ideas into value so they can continue to compete and thrive. While we are not 100% sure what our program will be, we’re thinking it will:

  • Expose you to the latest thinking on how innovation actually happens;
  • Be an environment where your creativity will be unleashed and then funneled into productivity – aka you’ll leave with an at least partially baked strategy/experiment/product/service;
  • Be guided by IDEO’s Design Thinking process and therefore cultivate your powers of empathy and observation, learn to tell stories, develop insights, synthesize possibilities, BRAINSTORM, make sketches and prototypes, test and test some more, and capture, organize and communicate the story that will ultimately make “the new thing” happen;
  • Provide tools and practices for maintaining your resilience as you work to turn idea into reality

So – between now and let’s say…April 2017 – let us know what you think this program needs to include so we can help you be the next rock star/problem solver/growth accelerator at your organization.
