Learn how to create “innovative energy” in your organization: download The Engagement Paradox today!

Are you in this kind of business limbo?

You want to get more out of your people and your systems, but:

  • there is no way to make your business processes any more efficient than they are now;
  • you can’t reduce your workforce any further than you already have; and
  • you can’t afford to hire more employees.

Common sense dictates that if business processes are more efficient, this will make employees’ jobs less taxing.

But reality tells us otherwise.

When it comes to innovation, many people enjoy the ideation stage…but anything after that is considered work.

Why? Post-ideation involves securing buy-in from the “higher-ups.” It requires persuasive presentation skills. It’s stressful.

But it doesn’t have to be.

As part of Juice’s innovation training program Innovation In A Box, we sometimes add in a gaming component to build excitement and energy beyond the ideation stage.

We call it Dragons’ Den (aka Shark Tank in the US).

How it works

Here’s how our version of Dragon’s Den plays out.

It can't be denied: gamification is revolutionizing the workplace and becoming a permanent component of innovative thinking.

But what is gamification, really?

Put simply, it’s a different way of thinking that:

  • considers how to bring “fun” into things that normally aren’t considered fun
  • involves applying “game-design thinking” in a non-game context
  • engages people by turning them into players

Juice Inc - Innovation training in manufacturing

A Manufacturing Leadership Council (MLC) survey on innovation recently caught my attention.

Most manufacturers clearly understand how critical innovation is to business growth. But it seems many are approaching innovation in an extremely informal way.

Consider this:

  • Only 17% say their companies have an innovation process in place with clearly defined roles, responsibilities, and deliverables for stakeholders
  • 79% say their companies do not provide a specific amount of time for people to devote to innovation activities

Many people equate innovation with technology. For example, they may imagine a room full of highly technical people, writing on whiteboards to invent the latest and greatest product.
