Stretch your goal, and your goal will stretch you!

The bigger the challenge you address, the bigger your awakening. Stretch your imagination and efforts, and they will stretch your capabilities and achievements beyond imagination.





The Step #1 in Addressing a Big Challenge

Describe what the challenge feels like to gain a more holistic view and a deeper insight that will help you to prepare to win wisely.

Use metaphors and/or historical analogies to create an 'Aha!' effect.

  Look at a situation from different angles

Every challenge-based Innompic contest is an opportunity to hone your outside-the-box thinking and ideation skills, creativity, inventiveness, entrepreneurial flexibility, and − most importantly − value innovation capabilities.






Exciting challenges help stretch disruptive thinking capabilities and breakthrough soft skills, facilitate challenge-based learning and entrepreneurial creativity.

Defining a challenge in conventional ways tends to lead to conventional solutions. Asking outside-the-box questions can help teams generate original ideas and come up with innovative designs.

Innompic Games is a creative challenge competition. It is a creation show composed of a set of both team-based and individial constructive competition contests open to entrepreneurial innovators from all over the world who will compete in the development and the presentation of creative solutions to exciting challenges assigned by event leaders.
The task is to develop and present attfully a creative solution for a challenge assigned by organisers in the follofing categories:

Challenges as a growth booster
> stretch
> energize
> creativity under the gun

Addressing a Challenge as Fun Exercise
Challenges can create a movement
Challenges are able to do something that other campaings are not able to accomplish in such a short period. Challenges excite and turn people to inspired partners.
Example: Innompic Planet of Loving Creators.
Challenges stretching capabilities of contestants create the Innompic All-Win culture of United Innovators and the atmosphere of the Innompic Planet of Loving Creators.

The Creative Challenge Technique

The creative challenge technique helps you to discover problems you don’t even know exist by helping you question the world around you. You uncover hidden problems by actively asking ‘why are things the way they are?’ Newly discovered problems can be used as seeds for possible solutions, or in the case of a business, a new and exciting product or service.
The Creative Challenge was originally developed by Dr. Edward de Bono, however I’ve rearranged, combined and reworded things a bit and come up with a three-step process that I feel is a bit cleaner.

The steps

The steps to utilizing the Creative Challenge are as follows:

1. Pick an existing solution and analyze it: Focus on an object or existing solution of interest and simply ask ‘why does this exist?’ There are so many things around us that we just take for granted, but every man-made creation is there for a reason.
As an example, take something as routine as a picture frame. If you ask ‘why do we have a picture frame?’ you may arrive at something like, ‘so the edges are protected and won’t curl up’.

2. Determine what problem is being solved: Reverse the question to part 1 to discover the problem the existing solution solves
Picture frame example: To discover the hidden problem, simply reverse the answer: “The edges of pictures will get damaged and curl up if hung directly on the wall.’

3. Develop solutions: Determine an alternate way of solving the discovered problem.
Think out of the box, ask 'What If?' questions to invent a creative solution - consciously of subconaciously - and spend some more time refining them.
Example: 10 KITT
Fast Communication Tool

Existing idea A: White board
Why 1.
Why do we use the white board?
- To communicate visually.
Why 2.
Why do we want to communicate visually?
- Because visual information is digested faster.
What I?
What if we use metaphoric tool to communicate ideas as metaphors are digested
Invention Tool
Why 1.
Why TRIZ inventive thinking technique is used by many large firms?
- Because it helps address engineering challenges inventively.
Why 2.
Why TRIZ is not used by non-professionals?
- Because it is too difficult to learn and is too narrowly focused on engineering tasks only.
What If?
- What if we use an easy-to-master universal set of metaphoric inventive thinking tools that would allow people to address all types of tasks and challenges in both life and business?
