The art&science of innovation When we work with some of the world’s leading companies that are facing big innovation challenges, we find that the biggest barriers to creative success are not the usual suspects: resource, time or knowledge... instead it is the brain. We’ll start by showing you how your brain works and how we can use the principles of Whole Brain Branding to create extraordinary futures. Drawing on the Hermann Brain Dominance Index we will explore and explain the concept of brain dominance and the principles of thinking preference developed from extensive brain research funded by General Electric. The concept of left/right brain was revealed by the study of stroke victims which showed those with left brain damage had right side of body mechanical break-down. One of Ned Hermann’s key findings relates to the concept of dominance. Whenever an organism has two of something, one tends to become dominant. As a result of dominance, most people have a dominant hand, eye, lung, and kidney. We’ll play games to uncover our own dominance and learn about the impact it has on working with others.

The Hermann© Brain metaphor
Getting into your right mind Drawing on the Hermann Brain Dominance Index we will explore and explain the concept of brain dominance and the principles of thinking preference. Ned Hermann developed the model following extensive brain research funded by his employer General Electric. The concept of left/right brain was first posited by Sperry and Ornstein in their studies of stroke victims – revealed that those with left brain damage had right side of body mechanical breakdown. One of Ned Hermann’s key findings relates to the concept of dominance. Whenever an organism has two of something, one tends to become dominant. As a result of dominance, most people have a dominant hand, eye, lung, and kidney. We’ll play games to uncover our own dominance and learn about the impact it has on working with others.
Orientation & Creative Guises We’ll share a way to tightly define your innovation challenge in such a way that it provides an inspiring springboard for ideas. We’ll share a tried and tested model that has been used for the past 15 years by over 300 teams to help define their challenge in a way that engages stakeholders and inspires project teams. We’ll also share with you the work done by Van Oech on how to “be” throughout the creativity process, from explorer, artist, warrior and judge.
360 Innovation Harnessing the Power of 3D teams This module is all about the power of collaboration: the power of reaching out to the outside world for inspiration and of building ideas with others rather than self contemplation. All too often we base our idea generation on what we already know or believe â€“ the result is that we tend to create evolutionary ideas which are as easy for our competitors to predict as they are for us to. By looking at more unconventional sources of information we can begin to build new roads into the future and to think along different lines to our competitors. There are lots of places that you can look for data. Our Four SourcesÂŠ model helps us generate a raft of possibilities. It involves raiding your filing cabinets and it ensures that we look at the things from a different perspective.
Intro to insights Insights are illuminating. They have the power to help us foster deep and lasting connections between our brands and our consumers. Weâ€˜ll share examples from around the world to provide inspiration and proof of the value insights bring to businesses that leverage them. Weâ€™ll share our definition and show powerful insight can drive innovation
Pattern Breaking Everyone has their way of making and breaking patterns to generate ideas. We present the 4 key themes in an easy to follow model that allows people to collaborate on ideation easily. De-constructing Detouring Decoding Detaching The model also helps us understand which tools best suit the way we think, from left to right brain. Weâ€™ll share the tools and provide time to play with them and learn how to run them using a fictional product development innovation challenge.
