How can I use it?
Kick-starting innovation initiatives and sparking creative thinking across your teams is energizing, fruitful and fun. However this can also be a cumbersome process – especially when lacking guidance or a roadmap. Participants may have a great idea, but many lack a game plan: what to do and when, what are the steps to take, what models should they use?
To help solve these challenges, our team imagined a small, practical toolkit that people can use in the workplace – from office, to manufacturing plant and distribution center to workshop. Something that participants can easily understand, use and share.
The 30-day Ideation Challenge is a set of flashcards, together with a resource guide, which provides a sequence of steps to follow as part of a 30 day challenge. Each flashcard outlines a carefully considered activity, based upon our own experience as innovation managers, working within innovation companies or combining resources and best practices from our global network of idea, innovation and campaign managers. You can also use the cards individually to help support a specific activity or process. And naturally we can help you with customized cards which reflect your own processes and tools.
What outcomes can I expect?
The cards are designed to follow the steps of an ideation process, providing tips, advice, templates and resources for the tasks and activities taken by you and your team. The 30 Day Ideation Challenge cards help you move from launching a project to identifying Jobs to be Done to aligning key stakeholder to delivering a winning presentation. Alternatively, each card can be used separately as a resource to support specific tasks – for example, the Create Your Buyer Persona or Pitch Day! cards. The cards are purpose-built to encourage collaboration, agility and speed - ensuring that you don’t have to spend valuable time figuring out a process or finding a template, but instead on creative thinking, sharing bright ideas and taking action on the activities which matter most.
How does it benefit me?
The 30 Day Challenge Cards help you keep innovation and creativity top of mind every day so you can surface and fast track high-potential ideas. Ideation Challenge Cards help to accelerate your own ideation initiatives and company-wide innovation projects – ensuring you are tapping into the brightest ideas (from your team, from customers, from suppliers) and bringing high-value proposals to life.
