Eventbrite - Silicon Halton Meetup #61: Structured Idation Toolbox

In an increasingly competitive market, innovation is becoming a key differentiator. The exponential advances and shifts in technology offer more and more opportunities. However, organizations are struggling with new ideas and innovation.

New ideas are sometimes risky. There is a perception it is based on luck and cannot be planned. It is hard to predict the market or users' reactions to innovative ideas.

Is there a way to come up with new ideas, design them and assess their usefulness and viability? Is there a way to create a line of ideas, a funnel to select the best ones?

What you will learn

  • Why we need to innovate
  • How ideation happens
  • How we create new ideas using fun games
  • How research, design, user experience, gamification and product management techniques provide a toolbox to create new ideas
  • How to transform ideas to products
  • How ideation can become a structured managed process

Lets all dive into the world of ideation!
