Organised to draw the attention of your employees and collaborators to the latest technological innovations, the innovation workshop is designed to motivate and give ideas to create and innovate. This in-house meeting will be an opportunity to involve the interested parties in different workshops and to give them the necessary inspiration to make the company evolve.

What are the real benefits of the innovation workshop and how to organise it so that everyone participates.

What is an innovation workshop in practice?

The innovation workshop is based on several principles. The main obligation is to bring advanced technology into the company and to allow employees to experience it with all the useful advice at the right time.

Each internal innovation workshop type event will be an opportunity to conduct training courses on various themes such as safety and well-being at work, the best solutions to promote collective intelligence or the different methods to improve the overall design process and redefine the innovation methodology.

Meetings, seminars, team building… can be the opportunity to implement workshops that will promote team synergy and stimulate the thinking forces present in the company. These workshops will not only teach new techniques and bring new knowledge. They will help to give the same vision of innovation to all employees.

 

Workshops to familiarise yourself with collective intelligence

While the company follows a strategy based on its assets and objectives, collective intelligence seeks innovation and solutions to bring growth and remain competitive. This new way of acting in the company places the human being at the centre of concerns and totally rethinks management methods by insisting on cooperation and the pooling of knowledge in order to move towards the same goal. Learning to refocus on oneself and one’s abilities allows one to evolve and bring a real plus to one’s team. Each choice is made with the desire to help the company progress and give it the impetus it needs to grow.

During the collective intelligence training workshops, the coach starts by observing the teams and then applies his own methodology. For the Groupe Zebra, the solution is hybrid thinking. The hybridisation of skills in the project team promotes more coherent decision-making intelligence and more skilful operational intelligence. The result is an innovative shaping of the project and significant time savings.

Towards an even more human approach to design thinking

Invented in the 1980s, design thinking is constantly evolving. This concept, which is in line with the thinking of the 21st century, requires you to set aside preconceived ideas to boost your creativity.

Design thinking training courses, in the form of workshops, force participants to reinvent their thought processes in order to be more creative and explore new horizons. This user-centred approach is already at the heart of the creative system of the world’s largest companies. It is now one of the driving forces behind creativity and its application allows the decision-making process to be optimised.

During the innovation workshops, the trainers put their know-how at the service of all and help each participant to master the concept. Several stages are thus defined so that, at the end of the training, everyone can manage an innovation project focused on uses.

Both concepts are designed to sublimate creativity based on a culture of innovation, design thinking and design fiction complement each other perfectly. Between the two, the borderline is narrow. New directions are bound to emerge and a significant lead is taken over the competition.

 

Different approaches and clear processes

The agencies, which organise in-house workshops in companies of all sectors and sizes, have a wealth of experience. Their creators have developed different concepts that strictly aim at innovation by focusing on the human factor. Regularly helping companies to stand out from the competition, these communication professionals motivate teams with their dynamic and original presentations.

The advantages of innovation workshop workshops

Several interests emerge:

  • collective intelligence and design thinking will contribute to better team cohesion. Collaboration between members is then more active, more dynamic and 100% centred on the group.
  • The desire to create differently develops motivation and leads to a pooling of the most positive skills.
  • The workshop allows the experimentation of several technologies and ways of acting. Everyone finds their ideal methodology by comparing and forming their own opinion.

 

With which agency should you organise an innovation workshop?

The Groupe Zebra has created another mode of action validated by a creative process using a team orientation tool. Called Vision Oblique, this process is inspired by Design Thinking. During the innovation workshop, the trainer teaches each employee to think differently so that each new idea and each new phase of creation guarantees a significant differentiation from what is achieved by competing companies. The objective remains to stand out and achieve success in often saturated markets.

 

How does the preparation of a workshop with the Groupe Zebra work?

Experts in observation and strategic advice, the Groupe Zebra’s trainers put their 30 years of experience at the service of managers wishing to implement new processes in their company.

To contact one of them, a form is available on the site. You will be called back in a short time to start talking about your project and you will be able to ask your questions immediately. Tailor-made support will then be set up until the day of the innovation workshop. You will, of course, decide which workshops you would like to attend and the number of participants.
