The goal of this product is to develop and increase change, through the participants’ acquisition of and experimentation with behaviors which are both creative and innovative. Highly interactive, practical, and functional, the product is a miniature path of development capable of supplying immediately usable instruments and methodologies which will tangibly allow for a greater and more deliberate use of creative thinking.
It permits participants to analyze business challenges from multiple perspectives, viewing them with new ideas. Participants, in addition to learning new creative thinking techniques, will acquire the awareness of what it means to be an active part of business processes. The fun atmosphere and the novelty of the instruments used will give a new vitality to participants and thereby enhance company environments.
The company will acquire, as an immediate, concrete benefit, an enormous number of ideas (for example, from our experience: 3,500 for 10 different challenges!), some of which will already be transformed into possible solutions.
Through Creative Thinking Day, therefore, two main goals are reached:
– finding concrete solutions to business challenges, through a NON-GAME GAME which involves everyone
– strongly engaging employees in the construction of a different business atmosphere that fosters change and creativity
Creative innovation is an extraordinary factor of success for businesses. For this reason, the question which people frequently ask of us is: “IS IT POSSIBLE TO DEVELOP YOUR OWN CREATIVITY?”
The answer is a simple yes, but to get started on the right foot, it’s necessary to understand where you’re starting from.
Thanks to this specific assessment of creativity and innovation, we’re able to guide leaders on a process of diagnosis and analysis which leads to the creation of the right climate for innovation.
The Situational Outlook Questionnaire® (SOQ) is a tool which gauges the climate for creativity, innovation, and change.
It’s a multi-method assessment which examines 9 important environmental dimensions:
1. Challenge and involvement
3. Trust and Openness
6. Openness to Risk
7. Time for ideas
8. Support for ideas
9. Humor and games
SOQ uses a double approach: 53 quantitative questions and 3 open qualitative questions aimed at giving an in-depth comprehension of the company’s organizational context.
It represents the point of departure for our projects of creative change.
The development of creative thinking as an approach towards a paradigm shift in day-to-day business activities is the focus of NSE’s Creative Workshops.
The workshop, custom-designed to meet the real needs of each client, provides creative thinking techniques and tools available for immediate use both in the boardroom and in one’s daily life. The result translates into a new mindset ready to be applied at once.
Through the development of creativity and innovation skills, working on the process of creative blocks, participants will discover how each individual is creative in his or her own way and will learn how to be more creative through the deliberate application of certain tools.
