The program Innovation Intervention: A Bootcamp on Design, Making, and Disruptive Thinking is a corporate innovation program that can spark creativity, provide tools and frameworks on design thinking, enhance exposure to disruptive technologies, and catalyze a culture of continuous innovation within companies for improved customer empathy and new product development. Developed based on research performed at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the program focuses on building the participants’ creative confidence and self-efficacy as the core determinant of innovative and entrepreneurial behaviors to support corporate objectives on Customer-centricity, Digital transformation, Innovation leadership, and Corporate innovation culture.
METHODOLOGY The program methodology is grounded on the following principles:
- Problem-Based Learning – a dynamic pedagogical approach in which learners gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to respond to authentic, engaging, and complex questions, problems, or challenges;
- Action Learning – merging theory and practice, Action Learning refers to hand-on “learning by doing” approaches following MIT Sloan’s framework: think, act, reflect, repeat;
- Collaborative Learning – enabling a small, diverse, and agile group of people or organizations (oftentimes not having worked before) to effectively work together to complete a task or achieve a goal;
