Enhancing Innovative Capabilities Through Visual Storytelling

 

Audience: All levels
Duration: 2-day workshop
Location: Miami Business School, University of Miami

Overview

As globalization leads to more competition between established and emerging economies, and technology reduces the barrier to entry, doing business in many parts of the world not only becomes easier, but becomes a necessity for staying competitive. But what makes a company competitive? In short: the ability to innovate.

Innovation = Creativity + Risk

Miami Business School has developed a unique interdisciplinary opportunity to seek innovation through visual storytelling. This tool is best suited for management exploring new strategies interested in incremental optimization to radical change.

This 2-day module offers participants to playfully dive into the power of visual storytelling. They will uncover how observation leads to elements of surprise that can trigger innovate solutions. As participants gather and share stories, they will take intelligent chances ideating solutions to complex problems.

As most of our population houses a video camera in its pocket, this hands-on workshop leverages that tool to support our participant's journey through three core concepts:

Imagine | Innovate | Build

Participants will leave the session with a new lens for innovative thinking, fluidity with a visual tool and new insights on how to find opportunity where you’d least expect it.
