‍This course will appeal to those in leadership roles tasked with shaping the future to meet new requirements and address unarticulated needs. They will utilize four elements of innovation—collaboration, ideation, implementation and meaning—to think critically, solve problems, and make effective decisions. Group sourcing and constructive thinking processes will be used to harness the energy of disagreement, and help groups move on with tactical coordination, implementation and direction.

‍Learning Objectives

‍Participant will be able to:

  • ‍• employ group-sourcing facilitation techniques to define problems and gather information
  • ‍• know when to use brainstorming, affinity exercises, storyboarding, etc. to harvest and organize information
  • ‍• use logic tools to generate ideas and explore options
  • ‍• understand four types of decision making strategies and their consequences (7 generation analysis)
  • ‍• apply the group's knowledge to effective decision-making


‍This course encourages participants to share and test ideas, then apply their creative efforts to their own working environments. In some cases the ideas are developed to the point where they can be operationalized, or introduced to the project management life cycle. Participants are invited to take part in a series of discussions and group-work exercises with specific application to their working worlds.
