Creativity Blitz – using a Design Thinking process
Try a Creativity Blitz to get the ideas you want, right now!
A Creativity Blitz is a 2-hour to 2-day targeted frontal assault on any pressing issue where you need exciting new ideas and solutions fast, by applying some key components of the design thinking process.
The more specific the issue the better, whether it is an urgent or nagging problem or challenge, an opportunity that has come up, or just a possibility you want to explore – a creative blitz can help.
It is not the same as our 90-Day Innovation Challenges, where teams work over a period of time to address major issues, applying a full design thinking porcess. Instead a Creativity Blitz is designed to create a sudden, possibly radical shift in your thinking on any specific focus, just when you need it.
This could be as simple as a 2-hour lateral thinking session, using provocation and movement to blitz ideas on a specific issue, or extend to a couple of intensive days. This is much like a design thinking idea generation session ‘on steroids’.
In a 2-day format a blitz is more like a design thinking Hackathon or Innovation Scrum, where a mix of people from different fields work together, sometimes in a team competitive way, to develop innovative new solutions, strategies, products or services.
We’ve done many of these each year since starting Mindwerx in 1998, and each one is exciting and different.
Using the best Design Thinking and Deliberate Creative Thinking methods available, we work with you to break you free from any blockages in your current thinking. So whatever your focus we can get you the break through ideas you need.
