New “3 Cs” Innovation Learning Workshop Program at the University of Wisconsin

I’ve been developing a lot of online workshops and webinars over the past few years but nothing is better for innovating than a LIVE group of people. Many organization know innovation systems and processes but they need to increase innovation soft skills. This new interactive and inventive program I’ve been developing is launching at the University of Wisconsin! I can also bring this experience to other organizations and institutions.

Developing Innovation through Collaboration, Creativity, & Communication

The Three C’s of Collaboration, Creativity, and Communication can help you to develop new innovations that can contribute to doing meaningful new things, improving processes for problem-solving, and having greater success in your work. You will meet new people and work with others to systematically generate and develop new ideas for the challenge of your choosing. Be guided step-by-step and activity-by-activity through an innovation process to develop and take action on new ideas for your real project. Learn the fundamental “best practice” activities for innovating and leave the workshop with more advanced innovation skills and a portfolio of new developed ideas.

By learning and using innovation tools and activities to create, collaborate, and communicate you will get important work done at this workshop away from the routine of your office. You will innovate how you work and create new innovations to take action on what is needed and wanted. New ideas that can make a difference in your work and life are motivating and engaging for you and your colleagues. Here are some key learning outcomes and actions we will take at the workshop:

Create:
+ Generate a wide range of relevant, new and different ideas based on your challenge or opportunity through creative thinking tools.
+ Analyze, synthesize, and develop the best ideas into a portfolio of concepts to act upon based on a best practice development system.

Collaborate:
+ Develop relationships quickly with fellow innovators to collaborate in groups with at the workshop and beyond.
+ Connect one-on-one with fellow innovators through guided activities designed to help you gain new insight and validation of your concepts.

Communicate:
+ Learn a simple and effective idea presentation format used by innovative organizations that will allow you to showcase your new concepts.
+ Practice communicating your best concepts in ways that are engaging and memorable using involvement, story, visuals, and metaphors.

This workshop is presented live at the University of Wisconsin-Madison! Visit the UW site for more details if you are near Madison. Otherwise, email me at darin (at) innovationlearning.org for more information.
