A Framework for Generating Innovative Ideas In 2017
presented by Lee Clark & Drew Woronka
The new year is a time for a fresh starts. It’s a time to try a new approach to everything from managing your time better to inspiring your staff, reinvigorating your sales methods or developing better negotiating skills. And, as the old adage goes, you can’t achieve different results if you don’t try different, more innovative ways of tackling the challenges you face. Lee Clark and Drew Woronka, co-founders of Changemaker Innovation, show us how to use simple yet powerful “human-centered design techniques” to solve problems more effectively. By embracing an innovative new approach, we can better arm ourselves in 2017 with the tools needed to solve the complex problems we each wrestle with daily.
