This form is the first step in opening an interactive dialog with the Virtual Thinking Expedition Company
(vTx) and the School for Innovators to explore the potential of designing and planning a School for
Innovators Expedition for your company. During a corporate School for Innovators the participants focus
on a broad general and urgent challenge or problem facing the company or a project team or group.
This inquiry process will assist you in the first stage of examining what might be possible. A School
or Innovators is limited to either 20 or 24 participants, depending on the design and length of the
School. Based on past experience with both the School for Innovators and operational Thinking Expeditions,
25% of the participants (1 out of every 4) should be "outsiders" (participants from other organizations
or companies) to bring the diversity to the School that has proven essential to its success. These outsiders
can be restricted to non-competing companies, suppliers and customers -- and the Virtual Thinking Expedition
Company can assist in recruiting them from our base of previous graduates.
A senior company officer will need to volunteer to be the Schools sponsor and backer - and to participate in
the exploration of the strategic focus area or areas (challenges).
It is also possible to send a team of 4, 6 or 8 to participate in one of the scheduled "open" Schools for
Innovators held through out the year. Group tuition rates are available.
