Description

This course is part of a series:

  • Reframing Corona - using Reframing and Paradigm Shifts to rethink life and work during a global pandemic

  • Reframing personal questions: see my Reframing Your Life course.

  • Reframing work, organisations, leadership, and business models: this course.

  • Reframing societal change: see my Paradigm Shifts course.

The world is changing rapidly on many levels. This is a challenge for established businesses but also provides great opportunities for  innovative approaches. By questioning our assumptions, we can start to  think differently about organisations, products, projects, business  models or customers.

Why do you do what you do, and why do you think what you think in your work?  Are there underlying assumptions that you are not seeing?  Using the Reframing tool, you will learn to challenge cherished  assumptions and reframe these to design radically innovative approaches.

You will design an Innovation Experiment based on these radical proposals, which you can immediately put into practice.

Fascinated by  Japan, he continued his philosophy studies at the University of Kyoto.  He was Associate Professor at Kobe University from 1996-2002 and at  Amsterdam University  of Applied Sciences from 2003 to 2007.
