I love this take on innovation. Designed to innovate the US school system, but with applications to advertising, media, product development in general. A very well defined and structured workshopping process, the right innovation skillsets (both insight, strategy and implementation) and a limited time period does it every time. AND prototyping. Taking that last step from concept to actual product!
Here is a little bit of background from http://www.good.is: “Two years ago the inaugural No Right Brain Left Behind innovation challenge asked the creative industries to dream up solutions that could help the creativity crisis in the United States’ education system. In seven days, the challenge yielded 300 concepts from some of the top creative companies in the nation.”
