Time and location subject to change (what isn’t?)

Please meet the Flower Processes. A Flower Process can be applied to power-up any collaborative process: Creative Problem Solving, Design Thinking or Appreciative Inquiry. You name it!

Based on Alexandre’s 18 years of experience playing with different methodologies (CPS, 6 Sigma, Agile, Design Thinking and recently Appreciative Inquiry), Flower Process is an attempt to give you a new perspective on the methodologies you use everyday and to improve your practice of designing collaborative sessions.

Flower Process will put reflection & incubation at the center of your practice and rely on 3 other important principles — adaptation, iteration and divergent/convergence.

After presenting the process, its visual representation, the mechanism and the underlying principles, we will play with the Flower Process Board game: a new tool to help you design CPS sessions that respect the principles of the Flower Process.

The Skinny: 3 things you will do in this session

  • Learn how to power-up any collaborative innovation methodology or process
  • Learn the main underlying principles that every modern innovation methodology or process should rely upon
  • Learn and experiment with a fun and thoughtful CPS game
