Training builds up the innovation capability of any team. Training converts the will to have a more innovative culture into a day-to-day reality. KILN is expert at helping people improve their innovation skills.
To enhance your imaginative capabilities, KILN provides Creative Problem Solving (CPS) training based on state-of-the art best practices in the Osborn-Parnes methodology as it has evolved over more than six decades.
CPS builds your ability to reframe problems, generate breakthrough ideas and plan for action. It’s an invaluable approach at the fuzzy front-end of innovation. Using CPS also helps resolve conflict in lower-performing teams, improves active participation by more introverted team members and boosts leadership skills. For more on CPS training, visit here.
Foresight & stories
To work more effectively with research insights and foresight, KILN offers training that orients participants to working with complex knowledge as the impetus for front-end of innovation cycles.
This course is aimed at managers and teams commissioning and reviewing insights, trends, foresights, scenarios. This course ensures you have tools & techniques for making your outputs useful and relevant to your organisation’s innovation process. For more on Foresight, visit here.
Stories are a powerful tool to communicate about uncertain futures. To ensure you have tools to craft relevant stories, KILN offers training in StoryFORMs and other narrative techniques. Stories will help you enrol people in FEI conversations and can make a real difference in winning management buy-in for innovative product and service concepts.
We also provide training to help leaders, managers and team members understand the innovation process, develop an innovation culture and lead robust innovation cycles.
We help individuals learn how to facilitate the variety of meetings and conversations that FEI work requires, including facilitating virtual ideation.
We provide mentoring services when: leaders are striving to instil a more effective innovation culture; or team members at an early career-stage moved into innovation work from another discipline, such as engineering or marketing. Mentoring is a great way of way of tapping KILN’s expertise when you need it.

Everything KILN offers you is anchored in our two core capabilities: First, our awareness that globally, culture and culture changes matter to businesses; which we scan in our TrendTrail process. Second, our knowledge of how breakthrough innovation happens via whole-brain creative thinking. We express this in FuseTrail, the holistic innovation process that takes team leaders step-by-step through how to run a robust innovation cycle from stimuli to concept presentation.
