LEAN LEARNING means me working with you to co-create the content. We will start with a tested and proven framework and we will IMPROVE it over the course of 10 days.

Advancement is not only a new thought; innovation is a process. A splendid thought turns into a innovation when it is transformed into an item or framework that produces fundamentally enhanced outcomes.

A survey of 322 business and HR leaders, conducted by PageUp and Alexander Mann Solutions, revealed interesting local and global results: 64% of organizations believe driving innovation will be a priority over the coming 12 months and three-quarters hold innovation as a corporate value. The study found that while there is a desire for innovation, for most organizations around the world necessary frameworks are not in place to bring this to fruition. While 54% of respondents have a process in place for submitting new ideas and incorporating feedback to improve outcomes, less than 40% have established processes in place for prioritizing these ideas.

There are four stages in the innovation procedure:

Making: Everything begins with a thought, and there is no doubt that each association needs new thoughts to stay focused and to manage a quickly evolving world. The general population who are most capable at thinking of thoughts don't need to work at it; they see conceivable outcomes all around. They don't consider things to be they are however how they could be. Obviously, not the greater part of their thoughts are splendid; some are truly off the divider. In any case, that does not prevent the Creators. They simply continue seeing those conceivable outcomes.

Progressing: Many awesome thoughts have perished from neglect since they weren't gotten. Luckily, a few people have a characteristic ability for perceiving smart thoughts and running with them. Advancers are more centered around execution than on making thoughts, and they additionally have an ability for connection. Since they get things going, they have built up the capacity to offer others on the thought and get their help for the thought's usage.

Refining: Before the Advancers charge off and actualize the thought, it would bode well to have a workable arrangement that it is free of gaps. Refiners frequently debate for the sake of debating part, asking the testing "imagine a scenario in which?" questions. It is critical to keep them concentrated on building up an arrangement to make the thought work as opposed to simply concentrating on why it won't work. On the off chance that you can't make it work, it will wind up noticeably clear. Refiners' gifts for investigation and scrupulousness are frequently underestimated on the grounds that they tend to challenge both the Creator and Advancer; however don't execute another thought until the point that you have tuned in to their info.

Executing: One of the essential reasons incredible thoughts neglect to make a creative change is an absence of complete. Well ordered usage of the arrangement, guaranteeing that all colleagues finish on their obligations, requires the gifts of the other Execs (those executing). They are centered around the everyday substances of what must complete and ensuring it gets done. Just when the Execs have finished their piece of the procedure can the innovation be viewed as entire and a win.

We will be answering questions like:

Are innovation and creativity the same?
Are innovation and invention the same thing?
How important are innovations?
Why aren't innovations communicated to all?
Are innovations always good?
Are innovations essential?

R Shane Snipes, MBA, PMP, SHRM-SCP

I serve as entrepreneurship faculty and the coordinator of a 2-year degree program at BMCC, teach at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and teach MBA students at Fordham University. I am also focused on a PhD in innovation & entrepreneurship.

I have been a training, HR, and innovation strategist for organizations like HP, Best Buy & Microsoft.

I've worn many hats in my career—college faculty, chief technology officer, TV host for a sustainability show, innovation manager, HR executive, and nonprofit founder. As a result, I have a unique ability to manage projects and to navigate complex challenges. But actual experience has taught me that my professional value boils down to the following:

  • l've been helping companies and nonprofits think about how to use technology to achieve their goals since the WWW started.
  • l am a multi-linguist of innovation driven people systems. I speak fluent geek, marketer, designer, trainer, salesperson, and difficult client.
  • l don't care who gets credit. I just want a win-win situation.
  • If my left and right brain were hands, I'd be ambidextrous.
  • I'm the calm one.
  • l run toward fires. Sometimes with marshmallows and chocolate.

I've also lived in the four corners of the US, Sweden, Lithuania, Spain, and Italy including a 30-day stint meditating on the edge of Tuscany.
