GUELPH, Ontario — June 29, 2011 — Innovation is a strategic priority for organizations, but simply telling employees to “think out of the box” does not provide a launching pad for brilliance.
Training and development experts Juice Inc. will reveal what does provide that launching pad in their July 13 webinar, “Innovation in a Box: Everyday People, Breakthrough Solutions” from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EDT.
The webinar will explore the components of a successful “grass-roots” innovation initiative that equips so-called “average” individuals and teams with the knowledge, tools and skills to generate breakthrough thinking. Attendees will learn how to:
– Create efficiencies, lower costs, and increase profitability.
– Foster an innovative work environment of highly engaged employees.
– Apply innovation to products, services, processes, and business models.
– Leverage your own thinking “box” and how to step out of it, and into another.
Rick Boersma, Juice Inc.’s resident Design & Innovation Expert, is the webinar’s featured speaker. Boersma is also the co-founder of Floworks Simulations and Training. He has been an educator and trainer since 1985, working with dozens of Fortune 500 corporations, as well as hundreds of smaller companies, designing and facilitating experiential training programs. After studying the innovation process for over eight years, Rick has developed the Innovation in a Box™ training program and is writing and illustrating a Graphic Innovation Guide.
“Asking people to innovate without providing the necessary clarity and support is a frustrating waste of time,” said Boersma. “Conversely, research shows that a structured approach to innovation leads to a 500 percent increase in useful ideas. We’ve developed a model that frees people to use their innate strengths and tap into others’ as well for a really satisfying and productive innovation experience.”
