For our October Meetup, the Innovation team from Premera Blue Cross will be facilitating a workshop that will introduce tools from Synectics (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synectics). In their own words,
"The overall theme will be about gaining greater confidence in accessing our own creative thinking to achieve much greater fluency and flexibility of ideas, and how we can bring others in to help create with us. The focus will be on Synectics as an ideation technique."
As always, show up for the first 30 minutes to participate in the "Community Building" portion of the Meetup, which will introduce some activities around "Building to think"- using hands on activities to simulate new ideas.
6PM-6:30 Community Building
6:30-7:45 Synectics Workshop
