Degrees of innovation - Best Practices template

Southbeach 'grids', linked to MyCreativity rules, makes it a snap to create a 'best practice' template in any field. Here, we show a model developed by the Innovation Leadership Forum, together with questions it prompts based on latest research into primary and secondary drivers of innovation culture. The questions change as you navigate the model. Tabs can be added to capture strategies for your own company, opening up more questions as you do so.

Starbursting with Southbeach MyCreativity

Starbursting is a form of brainstorming that focuses on generating questions rather than answers. It can be used iteratively, with further layers of questioning about the answers to the initial set of questions. The following screen shots illustrate two ways to use Southbeach Modeller to help facilitate a starbursting workshop.

In the first - the starbursting method is shown visually. The facilitator enters the subject of the workshop in the center. Clicking around the model generates questions. These questions can be captured in the notes panel (right) or used to create MyCreativity rules that trigger and generate additional prompts as the user clicks around the model they are developing.

Using a template like this, it is also possible to have a tab that displays a grid, with each of the focus questions as a cell. As model elements are moved from cell to cell, the appropriate questions are fired, simulating a gradual elaboration of the model.
