Innovation
Toolkit

Following table presents a list of 50+ tools which I and the participants have found useful in my innovation workshops. Many of the tools try to engage both the intuitive and rule-governed modes of thinking (Elephant & Rider or fast & slow). The choice of tools is based on my comfort, simplicity, usefulness and feedback from the participants. I hope to create a standard template to represent all of them. You can check out the first tool in a template format: Pain, wave, waste: 3 sources of innovation
