Creativity and Innovation Toolkit

Creativity and innovation toolkit

Releasing and realising new ideas

A busy and intensive day that offers individuals a range of techniques to energise their teams, generate new ideas and put them into practice.

Participants learn several key creativity techniques including how to maximise creativity in groups, ensuring everyone is engaged and removing the mindset traps that hold back creativity.

Using =mc’s innovation value chain model, participants explore the more formal process of innovation at an organisational level – taking ideas from a basic concept through a reality check to practical, quantifiable results. They also discover how to support a culture of creativity and innovation.

All our public training is scheduled when enough demand is there, so please register your interest here, and we'll let you know as soon as a new date is set.
Yes, and also face to face. It's equally suitable for both options. For more information on the differences between online and face to face training, visit our Learning and Development page.
If you have 6 or more people to train it's worth getting in touch to discuss in-house options.

These include:
  • your choice of structure – as well as choosing dates to suit you, you can also decide whether to have the content delivered in full days, half-day sessions or bitesize sessions over separate days.
  • tailoring options – if you're looking to focus on particular elements of the programme, we can look into this.
  • self-directed learning – this enables participants to set learning goals, acquire knowledge and skills, set their own actions and evaluate themselves using a customised web portal which we'll build for you.
In order to make sure your in-house training needs are met, the best way to start this process is with a conversation (for free of course). Contact us online or call 020 7978 1516 to speak to one of our experienced consultants.
