Event Details

Any act of creative discovery needs a structured process that allows you to develop, hold and then explore multiple, competing thoughts. But too often, we limit ourselves by putting the answer into the question.

Real breakthrough comes from a mindset free of judgement, fear and prejudice. One that gives you the room to learn, discover and adapt before trying to define the solution. It requires a form of positive ambiguity - a vital ingredient in Design Thinking.

You might call this the Power of Doubt. Some call it Ignorance Mapping, or the Virtue of the Ambidextrous Organisation. We call it the Grey Zone.

Join us at Vivid Ideas for an exclusive first look at a major body of innovation research undertaken by one of Australia’s founding innovation consultancies, How To Impact, in partnership with the UNSW Science of Innovation Lab.

In this session, we’ll…

  • Lift the lid on a new facet of innovation theory that underpins change, growth and the discovery of new ideas
  • Share stories and insight gathered from over 50 of Australia’s leading organisations
  • Help you measure the stretch of your Grey Zone right now, through a series of live experiments
  • Arm you with practical tools to stretch your (and your organisation’s) Grey Zone and flex the muscles that unlock Design Thinking

Let’s start a movement towards a more dynamic way of thinking, embracing change and thriving in our uncertain world.

Access and Inclusion

  • Wheelchair accessible - Access to the venue is suitable for wheelchairs (toilets, ramps/lifts etc.) and designated wheelchair spaces are available.
  • Hearing loop - A hearing loop (sometimes called an audio induction loop) is a special type of sound system for use by people with hearing aids. The hearing loop provides a magnetic, wireless signal that is picked up by the hearing aid when it is set to 'T' (Telecoil) setting. Many venues have an induction hearing loop system. Check if your venue has this system.
