Workshop in Munich - November 2023

Crow brings an innovation workshop down from the mountains into Munich

Are You Looking to Change Your Innovation Game? 

Perhaps you’re frustrated by the limits of so many of the current approaches to creativity and innovation?

Do you also see the profound limits of Design Thinking?

Are you sensing that there must be other more effective ways to innovate?

Every day for the last twenty years, we have felt this frustration ourselves – and every day, we have worked on and worked with others to develop a better way to approach innovation. The result of efforts is an innovation meta-model we call the Innovation Design Approach – it’s a powerful and radically different approach to innovation that focuses on developing the organizational changes needed to foster a resilient innovation ecosystem and culture that can be creative day in and day out:

“A completely new and novel perspective on innovation and the world around you!”

“This approach transcends reactive and constrained approaches purporting to be innovation.” 

“Adaptable innovation methods and models that fit your needs, not squeezing you through a cookie-cutter structure or method.”

Curious, you can read more about what others say about our approach to innovation – but even better:

Workshop in Munich, Germany - Fall 2023:

This fall, 2023, we are packing our bags, leaving our NYC base, and heading to Munich. And we invite you to be one of 20 change-makers joining us from diverse fields to reimagine your or your organization's approaches to creativity and innovation. It’s a really unique immersive opportunity to experience firsthand the power and capabilities of the Innovation Design Approach

We’re planning a highly experiential all-day workshop for you to experience the big picture of innovation and walk away with a set of implementable pragmatic tools and techniques for innovation.

What You Can Expect:

This transformative workshop - On Doing Innovation: From Disruption to Reality, will be an immersive all-day experience – we really have you covered – jump out of bed, grab breakfast, get yourself to downtown Munich and then we’re diving straight into the deep end: 

We begin with an immersive deep dive into the emergent innovation process, where the radically new emerges beyond our capacities to ideate or predict. We’ll use this experience to collectively unpack the total process of how innovation emerges. 

Lunch will come and go in a flash as we dig into how you can pragmatically, concretely, and effectively bring these processes and techniques into your own worlds – both personal and business. 

As the sun sets, we will transition to drinks and tapas for lively discussion and networking with fellow innovation practitioners. 

But no self-respecting workshop ends when everyone departs to go their  separate ways. First, to cement the experience, everyone will receive a robust digital resource guide to all of the key aspects of the workshop, plus a copy of our book Innovating Emergent Futures. And then, we will reconvene virtually on November 27th for a collective debriefing session with a generous Question and Answer period.

“I felt empowered to leave the known small-minded idea-solution-problem thinking behind in favor of paradigm-shifting, disruptive, robust new WORLD”
