“Bravo BTB! You helped us to ‘imagine the possibilities!”

 

We asked BTB to help us learn new skills to improve our individual and organizational performance. By developing specific examples, which related to our day-to-day experience and providing us a risk free environment, our learning was as much fun as it was insightful and we were ready to apply the results immediately. What’s more – we are now more willing and able to help each other, in a good way.

Case Study

Encouraging company-wide Innovation and Creativity

An advertising company is looking for a breakthrough campaign to boost sales for a major client who makes fruit-flavoured syrups.

Their task is to draw attention to their brand by creating a contest for the most fantastic dessert incorporating their product.

To come up with strategies for creating novel and exciting ideas that engage the public in wanting to participate in the contest.
New idea generation techniques were introduced and applied in a session that resulted in several actionable ideas and much laughter. Participants were encouraged to feel free in offering the most ‘out there’ ideas – with the caveat that it’s easier to tame a wild idea than to energize a limp one.

Many reported that the session was a real innovation ‘spark plug’, and that going forward they would be more willing to step outside their comfort zone, while still feeling supported by their colleagues.

It takes courage to come up with breakthrough thinking.

Who’s Creative? You are!!
A final word on creativity and innovation.

Creativity and imagination produce today’s most valuable currency – innovative ideas. A company’s best solutions for creating or improving products or services come not only from outside consultants and focus groups, but from the keen observations of people at all levels of the organization. Innovative contributions can emerge from anyone who is able to harness their immagination to solve problems.
