With rapidly changing technologies, dwindling resources and fierce competition, innovation is one of the most critical skillsets in today's workplaces. Yet despite it being one of the most effective ways of turning performance and problems around, it is also one of the most ignored and underused. This is because employees feel like they have the time or skills to be innovative.

In this training session we will equip managers with the tools and techniques they need to foster a culture of innovation on a daily basis. It will introduce them to new ideas and ways of working that will help them push innovation through their teams and company. They will see that innovation can be used to solve problems, develop fresh perspectives and step change performance in virtually every aspect of work.

“There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress, and we would be forever repeating the same patterns”

- Edward de Bono
