WHAT: 6-HOUR WORKSHOP FOR AN MBA CHALLENGE FEATURES PROBLEM-FRAMING & IDEATION USING KILN'S IDEAKEG
Kate Hammer, co-creator of IdeaKeg and co-founder of KILN, is coming to the Rotman School of Management, home of Design Works and the Creative Destruction Lab, to lead a group of students into blue sky thinking about a homegrown, successful Toronto-based manufacturer employing nearly 100 people and recently celebrating 30 years in the domestic textile manufacturing industry. The ultimate goal is that our combined efforts help the incoming CEO craft a bright - and ambitious - future that may well be in an adjacent market space. Read on if you'd like to participate, or know someone who would.
For years now, we have worked with business people on ways of changing culture by doing. Changing by doing is at the heart of intrapreneurial business cultures. Culture changes because people simultaneously:
· do different things (beyond or beside or instead of “business as usual”)
· do things differently.
As a result of the traction they gain through changing-by-doing, people hone their intrapreneurial intelligence.
Have a peek at what a group of 25 strangers came up with in less than 90 minutes at The Intrapreneurship Conference in London last week.
Profitable intrapreneurship depends on identifying problems worth solving and acting fast to conceive and execute. Ideas may come easy but finding problems worth solving is a whole other challenge. If you’re not content leaving problem-finding to serendipity, you may be looking for a flexible process for framing bolder questions and generating better early-stage ideas. As an intrapreneur, knowing a scalable process that people enjoy can propel buy-in.
