This is your chance to join Rowan Gibson – the man Forbes magazine calls ‘one of the most recognized thought leaders in business innovation’ – for a unique workshop experience that will change the way you think about business creativity.

In an inspiring atmosphere, together with your project management peers, you’ll get the opportunity to learn firsthand how to use Rowan’s proprietary 4 Lenses of Innovation™ methodology - one of the world’s most powerful tools for systematic innovation. After briefly introducing the process, the participants will be split into four sets of teams, one dedicated to each of his lenses:

(1) Challenging Orthodoxies – questioning deeply-held beliefs and conventional assumptions inside your company and your industry
(2) Harnessing Trends – using the power of discontinuous change to substantially alter the rules of the game and to drive industry disruption
(3) Leveraging Resources – repurposing and recombining core competencies and strategic assets in order to stretch into new growth opportunities
(4) Understanding Needs – learning to live inside the customer’s skin, identifying unmet needs and designing solutions from the customer backward.

During this workshop, you and your peers will use the lenses to stretch your thinking along new lines and generate exciting strategic insights for innovating around products, services, processes, markets, strategies and business models – to create new value for your customers. Most importantly, you will be able to take away a practical and proven methodology for innovation that you can start using right away inside your own organization. It’s a workshop you definitely don’t want to miss!

At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
(1) describe the 4 Lenses of Innovation methodology;
(2) demonstrate tools for generating innovative processes within your organisation to create new value for your customers.
