Systematic Innovation Training

Innovation is about generating new ideas and putting them into practice, in a way that changes how things are done, or what is provided in a significant way.

Complex work, system or organisational problems can be hard to make sense of and find solutions to. Often we feel that the current way is the only way, despite many challenges.

This two day course aims to raise awareness and improve theoretical and practical understanding of innovative problem solving.

The course will enable you, along with colleagues, co-workers, or friends, to bring a complex problem, of your choice, to work through, shed light on and generate robust solutions.

By the end of this course, you will:

  • Understand what psychological inertia is
  • Be able to use a range of thinking styles to explore problems
  • Be able to analyse complex problems using the Systematic Innovation tool kit
  • Gain an introductory understanding of Inventive Principles, which are robust, solution finding strategies
  • Have a good understanding of the complex problem you choose to explore, along with solutions to take away.
