Welcome to the age of ambiguity.
Many companies and people still live in the good old days. A time when everything was clear. When 5-year plans worked. In which it was clear who was a competitor and who was a partner. Economic success was achieved by those who produced their products in the same quality at prices in line with the market. That time is over. We are at a turning point in time that is calling many previous certainties and habits into question. Business models, hierarchies, career paths, cooperation and the demand for products and services are changing at breakneck speed. Welcome to the age of ambiguity.
Courage for new solutions.
The challenge: Many people find it difficult to let go of the familiar and embrace the uncertain. Combined with the need to urgently find new solutions, the uncertainty of new situations triggers fear in many, which blocks the existing creative potential and prevents effective new solutions. Denial of the need for change, stagnation, aimless actionism or a lack of decisiveness are signs of this fear.
Learn to harness uncertainty in complex times.
The first step is to disempower the fear of uncertainty by giving it a name: Ambiguity. Ambiguity describes the field of tension where problems are thorny, solutions are blurred and trends and information are contradictory.
Therefore, the second step is to switch from defensive to active design mode. This working in ambiguity needs continuous, fast and low-risk learning, experimenting and testing. With our CoCreACT® approach, we increase the imagination for effective solutions that open up new potentials.
Innovation is only possible in ambiguity.
Ambiguity will not become less. We cannot change that. What we CAN change is our reaction, how we deal with it and use it. Innovation is only possible in ambiguity. No one creates something new without courage and risk. With confidence and trust, we see ambiguity as potential instead of missing the opportunity. And we show you how to navigate it.

The CoCreACT® Method
We believe in cooperative collaboration because we believe in the collective wisdom: shared knowledge is more than the sum of individual ideas. The one hundred percent participation of all team members allows for a deeper understanding that brings forth previously unknown insights.
Everyone is creative. Creativity is not the talent of an individual, but a process that everyone can shape and learn. And the more playful the methods, the more imaginative and surprising the results.
The intensive link between hand and brain increases the imagination for unique and innovative solutions. That's why we prototype. We also make abstract concepts of brands, business models and strategies visible and tangible through prototyping. Now they can be worked on systematically and developed further together.
Our CoCreACT® training concept
With CoCreAct® we have developed a training concept that combines the best of various creative processes, such as Design Thinking, Creative Problem Solving or the Lean Start Up approach. With CroCreAct® you learn creative methods to test solutions concretely in experiments. We help you to anchor your new creative potential and want to support you in directly implementing your visions and ideas.
A creative process does not end with an idea. CoCreACT® effectively tackles any worthwhile challenge and directly starts its validation and implementation.
Ambiguity, complexity and uncertainty are our creative potential that needs to be discovered. That is why we start the CoCreACT® training on the first day with an "Ambiguity Bootcamp", in order to proceed in a structured way even in uncertain times.

CoCreACT® Facilitator Training
On the second day of the CoCreACT® Facilitator Training you will get to know the Swiss Army Knife of co-creative processes: The CoCreACT® process, in whose four phases you can transform any complicated or complex situation into exciting challenges. We will show you what it takes to increase the team's imagination in order to come up with effective ideas that are then effectively tested in experiments. You learn this hands-on with real challenges from the group of participants. You will get to know yourself better, which strengths, preferences and blind spots you have when designing something new.
On the third day it is time to apply what you have learned yourself. You take turns facilitating phases of the CoCreACT® process and discover yourself in your new role. In debriefings, we discover the last practical subtleties that are needed for successful CoCreACT® expertise.

What you take away for yourself personally
Ambiguity will not scare you, but will awaken your curiosity and what potential is hidden in it. We find out which thinking/tools you can use to expand your creative potential. We pack everything you need into your personal "creative suitcase": a customised basic process, tools that fit well in your hand, as well as exercises that you can use every day in the truest sense of the word.
What you take away for yourself as a facilitator
Day 2 and 3 belong to creative work in teams. In several workshops you will experience - using the CoCreACT® process and different tools - an amazingly effective form of creative teamwork. Step by step you will acquire new creative skills and apply them directly as a facilitator in workshops.
CoCreACT® as the perfect complement to LEGO® Serious Play®.
Lego® Serious Play® is a highly visual and haptic method for developing strategies and optimising collaboration in teams. CoCreAct® now forms the foundation for creative and innovation processes and is widely applicable.
CoCreAct® is a highly effective training that increases your ability to systematically develop and implement new solutions to new challenges in uncertain situations. It teaches basic concepts and methods to address the real issues, to increase imagination alone or in groups and thus effectively drive the development of new ideas. You will learn to identify your personal comfort zone in the creative process and to make your own work more effective by learning to move out of your comfort zone to a healthy degree.
You can complete the training before becoming a Lego® Serious Play® Certified Facilitator, but also as an additional supplement after the LEGO® Serious Play® training.
