COURSE OUTCOMES

This course will equip you to generate more creative ideas with our 10 Rules of Ideation, which were designed to overcome the neurological barriers that try to keep our brains from pushing out the best ideas. Extending beyond the techniques you need for effective, rapid and disruptive ideation, the course also teaches iterative prototyping and testing, so you can define and evolve concepts into activations. You'll learn to translate ideas into outcomes through prototyping in a variety of forms and formats (such as sketch modeling, play testing, experience design, etc.) and will be challenged to think differently, embrace a state of creative flow, and develop the mental tools for building rapid impactful solutions. Whether you’re working on products, systems, or services, this course will refine your ideation skills and help you find a format that works for you in your creative production practices.
