Course Description

“Innovation is what distinguishes between a leader and a follower” (Steve Jobs). This workshop will link the stimulation of individual creativity and collective intelligence, the key to an ability to innovate in a team and to bring a new spirit into one's work environment. A fundamental skill for any future manager or startupper. The pedagogical format in 6 x 4 hours will allow a quick assimilation both of the method and the tools in a commando spirit, close to that of the innovation groups facilitated daily by the teacher in large French and international companies. Students will practice a three-step innovation method inspired by the Creative Problem Solving on a specific topic. Collective innovation tools, including exclusive Fun & Serious games, will help to remove the obstacles to creativity. Two operational experiences will complete this workshop: a facilitation training and the design of new creativity tools by the students themselves.
