Innovation Parkour is a framework for the “open source” development of a practice of innovativeness. We believe that innovativeness, information pills like creativity, has certain roots in native human capacity. This capacity is complex and its constituents are cognitive, social and technological.
Our Field Lab workshop is designed to introduce people to the deep theory behind Innovation Parkour, but the majority of the day will be spent in an immersive learning experience. The goal of this workshop is to provide participants with an evidentiary basis for the belief that there is a path to better innovation.
Our objective is to challenge two extremely dangerous and limiting assumptions about innovation:
- that only special innovation “natives” can do it
- that innovations are the outputs of special processes
We believe that people find better ways to create value by working at it, that this work is something we can get better at by practicing, and that our practice is more productive and fulfilling when we do it with others with whom we share purpose.
