Experience The Medici Innovation in an area outside of your workplace to
realize that innovation is applicable everywhere and how seemingly
"non-creative" people can deliver amazing and simple solutions to complex
civic issues. Making use of the diversity we have in our state, getting them
into intersections and self-discovering the power of co-created solutions
for everyday problems is at the core of Medici Innovation.
The New York-based Medici Group has partnered us in setting up the Medici
Institute in India to drive innovation in a country where diversity is a way
of life and where the number zero was originated. (Surprisingly, in the
words of one prominent scholar, the number of innovations from this country
remained at that number only since then). It is time that we changed this
and driven our country and organization to newer heights by using the
principles of Medici Effect, co-creation and innovation.
This session will be led by Dr Muneer and Mr Kulkarni, Master Trainers and
innovators at Medici Institute India. The concepts are built on the
fundamentals of the best-selling book The Medici Effect by Frans Johansson.
Through a mixture of storytelling, instruction, discussion and interactive
exercises, you will have a chance to put the Medici principles of innovation
to work and discover how you can bring in change everywhere. They will zero
in on these areas:
1. Any problem can be solved in several ways
2. Never run out of solutions
3. Discover insights and creative ways to improve your solution or idea
4. Drive away fear of failure
5. Create a realistic action plan for implementation
Our Workshop Showcase is designed to challenge your perspective on making a
change and arm you with the tools to tap your city's existing resources and
talent to ignite a 'Medici Effect' of your own. In the past, we have had
CEOs, COOs, CIOs, CFOs and heads of Human Resources, Training Development,
Top managers, company owners & employees from such companies as Google.
Microsoft, CNN, Mass Mutual, ITT, Godrej, ICICI, HDFC, L&T, SBI, LIC, HPCL,
ONGC, Siemens and many others attended such sessions.
