Innovate or Die.

So it is said. But what is innovation and how do you innovate? What are the barriers to innovation and what are the key factors necessary to promote effective innovation?

These are poignant questions which hold the key to unlocking our innovation capacity.

After nearly a decade experimenting with the different approaches to teaching the art and science of innovation, the speaker believes that the key to unlocking your innovation capacity lies in your mindset. This half-day workshop is designed with 3 objectives as follows:

- Introduce participants to a definition of innovation as is commonly defined by most innovation practitioners;
- Introduce participants to a framework for innovation based on Design Thinking and some of it underlying tools/ techniques; and
- Review the underlying intent of design processes and how they are link to the source of innovation.
