Whenever an innovative solution is needed to move your cause forward. Ideation workshops might be applied at various scenarios, such as:
Innovation projects work best when there is a multi-disciplinary team driving the venture, the same goes for ideation sessions. Try to get a good mix of technical and commercial profiles from different business units in the room.
Facilitating an ideation workshop is something which might be out of your comfort zone but as long as you understand the exercises you plan to do you should be fine.
As per Board of Innovation:
Ideation is the process of forming ideas and concepts. In the corporate environment, “Ideation” defines the generation of new ideas and concepts to solve specific problems, either problems that your customers or clients are facing (thus creating business concepts for new products and services that your organization can provide them with), or problems that your organization is experiencing (thus resulting into improvements in the internal structure or processes).
In both these scenarios, you’ll need to gather the right set of minds from your organization and a good mix of facilitators to build awesome new ideas for your team to take action on.
