Innovation Workshops from Catalign Innovation Consulting


Published on

I facilitate two types of innovation workshops: (a) "How-to" workshops (b) "What-next" workshops. Primary objective of the "How-to" workshops is learning tools and techniques. Primary objective of the "What-next" workshops is deriving actions in the innovation journey of a team / organization. Topics include challenge framing, idea generation, idea selection, experiment design, idea communication etc.
