What is an Innovation Storm?
The idea behind an Innovation Storm is that you take an innovative or new emerging idea and bring together a group of people that are involved with aspects of the topic to discuss future business potential and additional ideas on how to better develop concepts that support the innovation.
The model for Innovation Storms from Abinsi's SpeedStorm. The workshops are designed for 10-40 people; activities include orientation, focus, discussion, and outcome harvesting. SpeedStorm is unique in its approach to identifying topics, assigning roles, controlling discussion, and facilitating decisions. A SpeedStorm engagement is designed to create a safe environment for discussing controversial topics.
Each of our Innovation Storms will have between one to four facilitators depending on group size. The sessions are relatively small so the topic discussion is easily managed and everyone gets a chance to participate. Key discussion topics will be posted in advance with the event information and registration. No one is forced to speak or participate, but the objective is to create an environment in which everyone feels inspired and would like to help a new concept move forward.
Even if you're not an expert, if you're interested and passionate about the topic, come join us! You will get the opportunity to learn and offer different perspectives.
If you are an expert, then we absolutely want to hear what you have to contribute as well.
Do keep in mind due to the desired small group size, space in limited for events so register for the next upcoming event right away as we might not be able to fit you in later.
