SP16 Innovate with Stories

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Mission Impossible music plays as a man, wearing a trench coat with an upturned collar and low-brimmed Fedora hat, slinks into the team retreat and leaves a briefcase at the front of the conference room. A few minutes later, the Project Leader walks into the room and, after some furtive glances to the right and left, carefully opens the brief case. A tape recording begins: "Good Morning, Mr. Leader. We face a serious situation, which requires the Mission Impossible Innovation Team." Stories add interest and intrigue to innovation, Creative Problem Solving, and strategic planning sessions. This session is designed to help business leaders and consultants in innovation and change management incorporate stories, storytelling and story listening into their work as agents of change. It will provide practical tools and techniques to enable the use of stories in the CPS process. You will use story-based activities to:
• Deepen insights and build empathy.
• Help a team develop a shared vision.
• Spark the flow of ideas during ideation.
• Frame strategies in story structures.
• Pitch winning ideas.
