Innovation Tools for Education

Our methods and online innovation tools for education are built on peer-reviewed research, practical work across the globe, and a large community spanning 45 countries. After having successfully worked with several higher education institutions and executive education, we decided to make our tools, methods, services, and databases available to higher education, executive education, and professional training firms. 

To quote Rovy F. Branon III of the University of Washington, in a new report, Renewing Higher Education: Academic Leadership in Times of Transformation:

The most fundamental attributes of the 60YC (Year Curriculum) will not be programs or content at all but will be the connective services that are a part of engaging and re-engaging the learner over a lifetime. One significant reorienta­tion is that new services are likely to focus less on a specific program and more on the long-term objectives of the learner. A second change is that most new services will be far more heavily augmented by technology than services today. Finally, the need for technology will be driven by increasingly sophisticated uses of data for both students and institutions. Looking at the landscape today we can already see hints of these changes taking shape, but we can also speculate about what some services of the future might be.

One example of an offered open program can be found here, and another large-scale governmental back initiative here.

All programs are based on current thinking, hands-on training with interactive online tools, world-class content, and instructor guides provided.

As well used for your own transformation, driving innovation across the board. Internal faculty members can be accredited to get full access for use of the tool both internally and externally.

Interactive tools for scenario planning

A significant part of tomorrow’s higher education will be about engaging, guiding, and leading.

One of the most well-known tools for this is scenario planning, used by the military and large corporations since the 1960s. However, until now it has always been undertaken manually and is hard to perform. Innovation360 has codified the UK Manual and Shell’s Scenario Tool Kit, into Scenario360. This interactive tool is designed to be used in education, particularly in student assignments. It acts as a perfect complement for universities, colleges, and executive educational bodies making strategic decisions about the future.

Interactive tools for key driver mapping

The Scenario360 Planning tool comes with a leading AI-enabled global key driver mapping system, PESTLED360.

Understanding the surrounding environment is one of the key cornerstones in any kind of analysis and plan for change, development, and learning. Our suite of interactive industry-leading tools for key driver mapping and scenario planning offers you a large common database updated in real-time, interactive collaboration and visual modeling. The suite is well suited to empower and extend executive education, micro-credential programs, and any process where upcoming trends are identified.
