Where do ideas come from? How are ideas generated? Join us to flex and strengthen your idea generation muscles!

In this session, Rejig will introduce you to one of the key concepts of innovative thinking - divergent and convergent thinking, both of which underpin the process of idea generation. You will have the opportunity to experience and try 3 or 4 different tools which will stimulate and stretch your ideation skills. Working in teams you will experience how to generate ideas, find alternative ways to view problems and will be encouraged to consider “wild” ideas and find the best ways to either solve or “get around” the problem. Teams will select an idea they would like to work further on and build that into a rough concept that will be shared with the group. Finally, you will be encouraged to identify small actionable and achievable steps that could bring the ideas to reality.

About the programme

This is the first workshop of a six-part series. Participants are welcome to attend as many sessions as they would like; attendance at all is not required.

Rejig is a design thinking consultancy based in Belfast. Working within the education, charity and private sectors we help clients tackle complex challenges by building creative confidence and leveraging innovative thinking styles.

We are delighted to offer this series of six experiential workshops, which will take you through the tried and tested Rejig practices and processes. All of our workshops are energetic, totally hands on and participants learn by doing. We use creative thinking tools and processes to help build a culture of collaboration with a real focus on mindset and the opportunity to experience how these tools and processes look, feel and sound in action. We create opportunities for participants to collaborate, listen with respect, learn from each other and re-inject fun while doing this. We help people build a common language to collaborate.

Though interconnected, these workshops also stand alone. Join for one, or all, workshops. With limited places, early registration is advised. We look forward to meeting/working with you!
