People often think that innovations come from great minds in eureka moments where flashes of intuition bring about ideas wholly-formed from nothingness. In reality innovation is often a more systematic process of iteratively building on previous work and placing that work in a new context.
This salon will guide you through a disciplined process of theory building. You’ll start by exploring well established theories from other disciplines. Then, working in small groups, synthesize new ideas and apply them in an Agile context. Finally, you’ll help make these new ideas stronger through a collaborative process of refinement and evaluation. You’ll walk away with skills and tools to not only generate and carefully assess the ideas we come up with, but other models, frameworks, and theories.
Join us and help generate and explore what may be “The Next Big Thing.”
