Event description

Description

Need new creative ideas for your project or your innovation?

Here in CFCP and the Creative Entrepreneurs Academy we are launching our new series of A New Way of Thinking Workshops starting with the Creative Thinking and Co-Creation Techniques Workshop in Ashford.

Creative Thinking and Co-Creation Workshop

By using a number of creative thinking techniques we will see how we can take your ideas forward. From PO statements to "Yes, and..." we will look to develop out of the box creative solutions. We will look at a three stage work-flow taking us from idea generation, through validating the idea and testing.

1 - Idea generation - using divergent and convergent thinking - looking at the differences between divergent and convergent thinking to firstly identify new ideas and secondly to look critically at each idea to see if they fit specific criteria. Developing a specific set of criteria through which we can test each idea based on the desired outcomes. This is a continuation of the workshop we conducted last time but spending a lot more time on the convergent thinking element and how we filter the ideas generated.

2 - Idea validation - looking at how the generated ideas fit the specified criteria. We will also discuss what we should measure depending on the stated outcomes and what tolerances have we set to identify success or failure. We will look at a number of testing methodologies in order to test each idea to see if the idea is viable. What resources do we need, what help we need, how the idea fits in with our customer segments and value propositions.

3 - Testing the idea - using the selected parts of the business model canvas and the lean business canvas to determine if any idea is deemed viable by using the criteria we have developed. Looking at what to test, how to test and against which sets of criteria the ideas should be measured prior to developing an investors pitch or looking for external funding. One of the critical parts of this section would be how we can adapt or modify ideas. It is also critical that students learn how to test ideas quickly through small, fast experiments without drowning in a sea of data but addressing the problem / solution fit, scale, market and cost.
