Innovation is happening at an accelerating speed. Products are replaced by services and competition arises from the tiniest corners. The capability to understand where innovations come from gives large organizations the power to respond to these transformations in a non-obvious way.

By applying creative techniques to real business challenges and learning new hands-on tools, people can broaden their mindset and learn how to break outside of the box when pursuing their day-to-day activities.
