Session Overview

Workshop objectives:
1. Understand the importance of emerging and sustainable trends in your market environment.
2. Learn how to create and capture emerging and sustainable trends in your industry.
3. Utilize proprietary “ideation” tools and methods to map out future market insights and emerging trends.
4. Bring together “idea fragments” and create new platforms for growth opportunities.

In this hands-on workshop, IXL Senior Partner Ronald Jonash will discuss a range of tools and techniques to identify emerging trends and insights related to your business and industry. You will learn a structured approach to brainstorming and idea generation that will enable you to map the key components of your current and future business opportunities. Participants will have the opportunity to co-create new platforms for business growth within their workshop cohorts/teams.

Innovation Friday’s workshops use proven innovation tools and techniques to identify and take advantage of new business opportunities. The workshops will build your capabilities with these methods. The blended on-line and lecture learning opportunity will allow participants to take away a wealth of knowledge and inspiration towards realizing innovation in the real world.
