The roles of people are changing along with the modern organisation. Whether your new role is management within a more "flat" organisation structure, project/program manager, scrum master or product owner, and of course overall facilitator, being able to facilitate a group of people towards tangible results and decisions in a short time-frame becomes increasingly important.
During this high paced hands-on training we’ll dive into techniques for several purposes: from ideation and pure brainstorming, over prioritisation, to lessons learned and retrospective/kaizen formats that actually work within the timeframe you have been able to lock in those busy agenda’s.
The focus is mainly on Innovation Games®, a tool that will help you along with huge strides towards creating applications, products and/or services with a user-centered design. They support the decision making process, create more engaging meetings and help set product/service direction.
In order to have good sessions/meetings, a skilled facilitator knows how to balance the energy to keep members involved and focused, in order to create real leadership opportunities in the organization with tangible results at the end of each session. The more you know about how to shape and run a good process, the more your organisation will feel empowered and engaged about their own ideas and participation. They will stay involved, take on responsibility and ownership, and your meetings will become even better.
Give us two days and we’ll teach you how Innovation Games® uncover deeper and more accurate customer insights, create a faster decision making process and make use of the creativity of everyone involved. To this already heavy hitter, we’ll add a load of other techniques from the Gamestorming and Liberating Structures stacks.
Each training covers on average 30 techniques in a hands-on fashion, from simple to complex, to combine towards a powerful toolbox you can use both on paper as well as online using the Weave® platform.
Based on Luke Hohmann’s book, Innovation Games: Creating Breakthrough Products Through Collaborative Play, and our qualified instructors’ years of real-world experience, this two-day interactive workshop teaches you how to create your own successful workshops.
