Course description

Ideation & Creativity: an experiential learning in-house workshopIdeation and Creativity Improv-based Workshop

Everyone, no matter the industry, is looking for the next new idea. A company's success, however, is dependent on good ideas, not necessarily new ones. Contrary to popular belief, good ideas don't generally appear from the ether. You can't wait for good ideas. You have to go get them.

Breathe fresh air into your daily activities

This Ideation & Creativity  in-house workshop is designed to engage organizations in the sometimes messy process of getting to good ideas. Whether for building new customer relationships, ideas for new products, or new ways to market services, this interactive workshop brings solutions within reach. OYF methodologies and improv-based techniques are designed to help clients think beyond current challenges, develop new ideas, and even surprise themselves.

The three steps for developing great ideas:

  1. Create the right conditions
  2. Re-frame the problem
  3. Break routine

Facilitated Collaboration

OYF assembles teams by blending business and leadership professionals from across a broad range of industries with highly trained improv performers. By combining these two radically different schools of knowledge, On Your Feet delivers ideation workshops that not only excite, but get results.

Training content

This Ideation on-site/in-house workshop is customized to meet the creativity and innovation needs of individual companies. This said, workshop goals tend to include aspects of either one or both of the following:

More, different and better ideas

Creating ideas that break the mold is NOT about discussion. Settling into a nice comfortable chat about best practice and technological trends is a sure way to entrench habits and waste time dwelling on the same, tired concepts. The key to new ideas is getting out of  the comfort zone and breaking away from the patterns formed by round table discussions.

OYF does just this by using improvisational techniques, "human storyboarding", material mechanisms, pictures, sounds, movement, other multi-sensory stimuli, and physical space.

Focused ideation: marketing ideas, new product innovation and naming

Improvisation is used to break away from normal, habitual communication but not all techniques are the same and customizations are made based on company needs. Human Storyboarding, for example, is an ideal technique when formulating marketing ideas or digging deep for a potential new product.  OYF professional improvisers are also trained in lateral thinking techniques, useful for generating ideas in a variety of ways from naming to reassessing business models.


On Your Feet Workshop Fees

On Your Feet workshops and keynote programs are highly customized to meet specific company needs. Fees vary depending on the amount of design required as well as delivery specifications. All workshops are delivered by  at least two facilitators. OYF has its global headquarters in Portland, OR. Courses booked within 50 miles of Portland, therefore, usually don't incur travel and lodging expenses for facilitators.
