From the evolution of the modern-day pencil first used to mark sheep, to the cut-away curb implemented for a group of special-needs students at Berkeley, it’s been the outliers and unique circumstances that have carved the world around us.
In the Celebrating Deviations workshop we will examine times when divergent perspectives have produced innovative outcomes. We will walk through several case studies looking at how reframing your constraints can lead to new and surprising outcomes. We will further inspect how these unique reactions lend themselves to tactical techniques and frameworks that can be used with your own teams when looking for a spark of something new. After all, it's not only the masses that define the world- it's the special, the unique, the brave.
We'll bring the stories, you bring the curiosity :)
