“In an intensive three day workshop, with the help of creaffective and its creativity toolkit we were able to develop several truly new ideas for a challenging product request. Particularly helpful was the strong focus on problem definition in the first half of the workshop. This helped us to align the participants from different functions, and provided a solid basis for efficient idea generation and evaluation. All in all, our expectations were fully met, and we consider working with creaffective again.”

“Our two day Product Innovation Workshop under the guidance of creaffective was definitely a success. creaffective was able to have a very diverse team of company internal and external people create a common understanding of the challenge they were facing and have them generate a wide range of ideas, some of them really creative and of high quality. Most impressively and importantly, was the fact that at the end of the 2 days, they guided the group to come to a real tangible result.”

“In two workshops the facilitator used very sophisticated methods to successfully analyze each problem. One workshop was about the development and improvement of internal processes, the other about the creation of a culture of constructive criticism. The end result in both cases: Concrete action steps and a common understanding within the team. With this facilitator and the creaffective methods we can tackle every challenge and break through any kind of innovation blockage.”
