Innovation Games: Using Collaboration to Solve Business Problems

Description:

Sponsors and supervisors alike demand solutions to tough problems: How do we prioritize competing interests? How do we get clarity on needs? What are the hidden opportunities we’re missing? But too often, our solutions don’t hit the mark, or don’t have the support to get traction.

In this high-energy session, you will learn the Innovation Games technique for real issues like these through collaboration. Founded in science and proven by industry, gamification has helped corporations and governments overcome hurdles that were considered insurmountable. Come learn the solutioning technique that will generate the insight, the buy-in, and the momentum that leaders are expected to make happen.

Can't make it this month?

We meet approximately every month, either the second or third Wednesday of the month. So if you can't make it this month, hopefully we'll see you at the next meetup. Also, if you have an idea, game, workshop, or story to share with the group, then please contact the organizer to setup a presentation for a future meeting.
