Why this event?
Global Innovation is designed to encourage creativity and innovation, and to reward effective teamwork. For those on your team who are already known for their creative sparks, this is a great way to stretch their brains. For people who don’t traditionally think of themselves as creative, it serves as a reminder that all of us can be innovators on some level.
Another plus of this unique program? It provides a chance to spend time solving problems and hatching ideas without relying on today’s tech devices. That’s right – we’re bringing it back to the basics. In-person conversations, brainstorming and even silent moments of deep thought are the tools you’ll rely on. We hear again and again how refreshing it is for teams to finally step away from search engines, spreadsheets and screen time in general. This is your chance.
The flow of this event is directed by a set of specially designed cards. Each team is dealt a series of random Tech, Data and Object cards. Using these as prompts, they’ll come up with concepts for new Services, Tools or Smart Objects. Teams choose and validate their strongest ideas, then deliver a two-minute pitch to the full group. Teams then decide where they want to invest their “money.” This event provides a nice balance of collaboration, competition and fun.
*Also available as a virtual or hybrid event.
