Facilitating Innovation

The Innovation Facilitator program can be taken after the basic innovative thinking course. It enables the participants to become "innovation consultants," capable of taking an issue (whether they own it or not), developing an action plan to resolve it and implementing the plan, including the facilitation of any meeting as required. In addition to refining their knowledge of the Ideaction process, it enables the participants to develop facilitator skills they can use in any situation.

Who does it apply to?

  • Participants in the innovative thinking program who want to take on more active responsibility for developing innovative solutions in their organization.
