The FORTH innovation methodology is implemented both ‘live’ as 100% online. And it works in both applications very well. You can train and certify yourself in the FORTH innovation method in two ways. Either by following the next 6-week-online training as certified Online FORTH innovation facilitator, or by entering the next 6-day-live training of the methodology in The Netherlands. When you are operating professionally in a digital setting or for clients in digital sectors, I can recommend the online training. When you, your organization and/or your clients love to work in physical meetings, please register for the ‘live’ training. Check out the dates for the next one, below.

Online FORTH facilitator training

Training
During and after the Corona crisis organisations need to reinvent themselves. At this moment the demand in the market for (FORTH) innovation programmes online is eminent. At the same time, individuals are now more than ever ready and open for online formats to innovate. After experimenting with a FORTH online process of 10 weeks, we concluded it works great, when applied in the right way. We learned though that the critical success factor is that a facilitator masters the online formats, – techniques and – tools. So that’s why we launched this six-week training as certified online FORTH innovation facilitator.
