What is more important? Getting the answer right? Or, asking the right question? This session explores why innovation remains elusive despite companies investing millions in “innovation centers” or hoping that making innovation a company value will somehow inspire employees to be innovative. We will concentrate on the first barrier to innovation: your brain. Once we learn how our brain tries to limit our innovative thinking, we will teach our mind to counteract it. You will learn techniques to decipher what really is the problem, what actually needs to be solved, and ways to creatively solve it.
