Episode Description

The buzz: Yes, you! A Design Thinking training participant told the instructor, “This is not for me. I am leaving.” The reason was not quality or pace, but a matter of fit. Creativity was supposed to be open to everybody; for this person, not so much. Should your company’s innovation program be open and broad-brush or selective and focused, a sprint or a marathon? Does great innovation require inspiration or perseverance, the right mindset or knowledge and skills, solitude or group thinking? The experts speak. Dr. Julia Goga-Cooke, Gconsultancy Innovation: “If I had an hour to solve a problem, I’d spend 55 minutes thinking about the problem and 5 minutes thinking about solutions” (Einstein). Guy Van Wijmeersch, Barco: "Every mind needs friendly contact with other minds, for food of expansion and growth” (Napoleon Hill). Alejandro Pifarre, SAP: “Courage is only the accumulation of small steps” (György Konrád). Join us for The Power of Group Thinking: Inspiring YOU to Innovate!
