Event description

Description

Leading brands continually deliver value to customers in ways they didn’t even know they needed.

Determining how to package this value is often an intimidating challenge that can hold your business back. Sticking to one playbook doesn’t scale or sustain, so you need to carve time out for efficient and effective ideation that your team is motivated to participate in. This resource allocation is critical to developing and launching new products, services, and experiences to thrill your customers.

This session will provide a roadmap for leading advantageous ideation exercises that keep teams centered on shared goals long after people return to their desks. You’ll learn how to create team dynamics, lead group-based idea generation and refinement techniques, and apply methods to turn ideas into action with momentum. We promise to not overcomplicate the approach!

Join us for an in-depth session presented by Mekanic's Erik Hansen, President and Chief Creative Officer and Katie Hansen, Vice President and Chief Experience Officer which was developed from the famous Pablo Picasso quote: "I begin with an idea, and then it becomes something else."

Key takeaways from Erik and Katie's presentation will include how to:

  • Attract and assemble the right team
  • Build a stimulating environment
  • Encourage creative thought while working within established constraints
  • Harness the power of “groupmind” over “groupthink”
  • Elevate and activate the best ideas
