Innovation is vital to a company�s success and very survival. But sometimes, innovation is placed on the back burner while companies focus on optimizing processes and perfecting current products and services. Even when we implicitly recognize the importance of innovation, we can feel overwhelmed and unsure of where to start. Process is as important in innovation as it is in every other part of a company. The Innovation Process moves people through the steps necessary to turn a vision into reality, and it can be applied anywhere innovation and improvement are needed. Having a defined process can also help us make proactive innovation a priority, so we�re never scrambling to innovate reactively. After this workshop, you will be able to identify and encourage idea fluency and facilitate an Innovation Process that moves from ideas to solutions.
� Become proactive instead of reactive to address changing business needs. � Encourage idea fluency with others. � Create a safe environment for the exchange and flow of ideas. � Use the innovation process for problem solving and continuous improvement.
