Workshop Abstract

How do leaders anticipate future growth opportunities and plan the next breakthrough innovation? Learn new innovation tools and techniques in a two-day workshop.

Taught by experts from Stanford University and Innovation Leadership Board, the workshop will be a hands-on and immersive learning experience. The emphasis is on learning by doing and through asking smarter questions through the tools in the Foresight FrameworkTM, a proven methodology to find future innovation opportunities and also to create innovative organizations. Composed of 15 methods for problem scoping and problem solving, the Foresight FrameworkTM is designed to address complex problems and future planning as systematically, creatively, and efficiently as possible.
