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.

FORTH facilitator training

Training
The 6-day FORTH training is an intensive training by the founder of the method, Gijs van Wulfen, in a group of around 8 people from all over the world where you will learn the essential tools and techniques HOW to start innovation effectively. You will learn from the techniques by doing, as you will facilitate the methodology as of the start of the training yourself. In this way you will learn besides the content of the methodology also how to facilitate it in practice. Training days are intensive from 08:30 – 20:00, followed by a joint dinner. As venue we have chosen an historic Cascina on the countryside in Italy near Milan. You will be staying in a luxurious old biological farm, where we will be the only group.
