Innovation Training Under Utilized

Gregg Fraley

When I step into a room to facilitate a strategy, innovation, or idea generation session I usually find a great deal of energy. Teams and work groups don’t know how to be collaborative. Training the teams, having a skilled facilitator in-house, and frequent practice of divergent thinking are essential to effective idea generation sessions. Knowledge of frameworks like Lean, Agile, CPS and Design Thinking are essential.

Improv for Business

Gregg Fraley

Classic Improv games are adaptable for visioning, exploration, problem framing, idea generation, solution development, and planning. The key benefit is simply getting to a breakthrough insight or idea much faster. By the end of our time they’re eagerly jumping into “scene work” and jamming ideas and problem frames based on scene-stimuli. There are laughs of course, but that’s incidental to the ideas being furiously written down in notebooks.
