Innovation is happening faster and faster in the marketplace. Products are replaced by services and new competition arises from the most obscure places. The ability to understand where innovations come from gives large organizations the power to respond to these changes in unconventional ways.

By applying creative techniques to real business challenges and learning new hands-on tools, people can broaden their mindsets and learn to break out of the box during their day-to-day activities. 

“The session was very useful. We acquired direct applicable knowledge. The feedback of my colleagues was also unanimously positive!”
