Dennis Geelen, owner of a local consulting firm based in Lindsay, has created a new ‘innovation board game’ as a way of helping to teach organizations how to be innovative.
Geelen, principal of Zero In, helps educate individuals on leadership, innovation, and change management. The Zero In – Innovation Board Game is designed to be an engaging, fun and informative way of helping to teach organizations of any size in any sector how to innovate.
Geelen worked with the City of Kawartha Lakes Family Health Team over two days recently. The first day was spent talking about why organizations need to innovate, what stops them and what are the basic principles of innovation. On the second day the game was played.
City of Kawartha Lakes Family Health Team Executive Director Mike Perry says “innovation is key in health care.”
