Making Innompic Games a Popular Global Creation Show

Innovative Thinking Tools - Flashlight Kore 10

Too little limelight

Innompic Games are not promoted as a global show prominently enough.


Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tools: TROPHY

Better differentiation

Innompic Games as positioned as a Creation Show and differentiated from talk shows as a show for achievers, and from Olympics as a show that allows spectators to participate in contests.

Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tools: HEADSET

Weak message

An amateur-style Innompic anthem video
 'I Have a Difference To Make!' is not strong enough to enthuse millions.


Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tools: KNIFE

Shredding and synergizing

Professional multi-cultural performance will also be recorded. Traditional Indian-style, Malay-style and Russian-style music will alternate with the original one.

Innovative thinking tool: Rope

Existing ties are strong

Potential spectators have not been warmed up enough to break from other activities and engage Games.


Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tools: TROPHY

Opportunity to win

A pre-Games contest for spectators "Innompic Torch Web-Relay" is created: push the button first and be the next Innompic torch carrier for one hour.

Poor catch

Pre-Games Innompic Torch Web-Relay "push-fast" contest for active Internet spectators has nothing to do with smartness and doesn't attract smart people.


Hammer - KoRe Metaphoric Innovative Thinking Tool

Making adjustments

Innompic Torch Web-Relay contest-cum-show is enhanced by smartness challenges and "Message to the World" exhibitions. >>>

Hammer - KoRe Metaphoric Innovative Thinking Tool

Too masculine

Something more emotional and appealing for a common person is needed to engage a wider audience.


Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tools: HEADSET

More perspectives

EKICHAWO monthly video series ‒ Empowered Kids Change the World will be launched. They will be followed by a similar video series featuring teens-inventors.

Innovative Thinking Tools - Flashlight Kore 10

No limelight

Teams are not known to the global audience to inspire creation of powerful fun clubs.


Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tools: HEADSET

Sending a message

Each team is to prepare a 1 min entertaining video introduction.

Each team should have a differentiated name.

Each team and each team member are to prepare a Message to the World.

Team videos and Messages to the World will also be displayed in the Innompic permanent exposition.

Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tool: Balloon

Too low air pressure

Innompics are supposed to be an all-engaging global show, yet too many people are not moved by the ideas and inventions played with.


Fishing Rod - KoRe 10 Innovative Thinking Tool

Creating a better bait

The final contest is added: For a given pressing global problem, find creative solutions and opportunities.  >>>

Innovative thinking tool: Rope

Weak ties with with the target group

Problems to be solved by the teams don't engage spectators emotionally.


Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tools: HEADSET

Better communication

While innovation teams are thinking, performing artists (actors, singers, dancers) make a quick emotional performance "This problem feels like...".

Relevant drawings of young artists are shown.

Finally, innovation teams start presenting their creative solution by describing how the problem is felt by the four types of strategists: Visionary Strategist, Innovative Intrapreneur, Functional Expert and Frontline Practitioner.  >>  Example

Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tools: TROPHY

Hard to judge

It's difficult for spectators to compare smartnerss of different teams because they play with  different inventions.


Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tools: KNIFE

Divide and conquer

In future, each team will play with its invention two or more games against different teams, thus the spectators could compare different project development scenarios and smartness of different teams. Everyone will also learn more about diverse enemies of innovation and  radical project management.

Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tools: TROPHY

Low emotional drive

There are no emotional peak moments, like scoring a goal or winning a race, that make Olympics a great and popular global show.


Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tools: TROPHY

Celebrating victories

Each idea, player and team can Get a WOW ‒ smaller WOW during a contest, bigger WOW after a contest, and the biggest WOW at the end of the Games.

Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tools: TROPHY

No celebrations

There are no gold-medal celebrations that feed positive emotions and keep them high  during the course of the Innompic Games


Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tool: Balloon

Lifting emotions

Award winning celebrations are included in the program of Innompic Games:

The Best Message to the World by a Torch Bearer

3 Best Messages to the World by actators

Deflated emotions

Spectators get bored while the teams are ideating.


Innovative thinking tool: Rope

Strengthening ties

Show Teams composed of innovation gurus, functional experts, kids and performing artists will provide different perspectives on the problem and how it feels to them.

Special Fun Teams ‘Smart is Dumb’ and ‘Fun4Biz’ keep the show going.

The fun team members are smart innopreneurs, witty intellectuals and performing actors.

The performance is judged by special fun judges.

Innovative thinking tool: Rope

Weak connections

Performances of the fun team are irrelevant to the problems to be solved and challenges to be dealt with by the innovation teams.


Hammer - KoRe Metaphoric Innovative Thinking Tool

Making adjustments

Performers are to use a random innovation tool and to say with emotion, passion and humor this toll will help to solve the problem that has just emerged.

When innovation teams have more time to think, for instance when they invent a new product or solve a global problem, performer show what they've prepared just before the innovation teams present their creative solution.

Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tool: Balloon

Too low air pressure

Internet spectators who want to showcase their talents are not engaged enough.


Innovative Thinking Tools - Flashlight Kore 10

More limelight

During an Innoball game, as soon as a new challenge has been announced, spectators may submit creative solutions and publish associations (photos (emotions, body language, etc.), drawings, 5-sec musical improvisations, sounds. etc.). The best submissions will also be included in the game description published at the permanent Innompic exposition.

Innovative thinking tool: MONEY

Low value

The value of the permanent Innompic exposition is too low to attract many visitors.


Kore 10 Innovative Thinking Tool: Balloon

Higher value

A library of Innompic invention and commercialization ventures is created
