What is Spark?

Spark is a tool that allows teams to quickly move from merely discussing a problem to implementing an action plan of ideas crowd-sourced from the team’s collective wisdom.In its simplest form, Spark is an easy-to-implement, effective method for guiding individuals and teams through a collaborative, action-oriented, solution-generating process. 

ASU Spark Method™ is so much more.

ASU Spark empowers individuals at any level within an organization to confidently and skillfully approach the challenges they face with the training and tools needed to implement effective change. ASU Spark accelerates decision making, ignites motivation, lifts morale, and builds a culture of autonomy where each individual trusts and values the collective understanding that innovation starts with me™. This concept, that creativity and invention live in all levels of the organization, regardless of title or authority, is what drives the ASU Spark Method™.


 What does a SPARK Session look like?

A Spark Session is typically a 2-3 hour session that brings together different stakeholders, community members, leadership, and other key players to tackle a specific topic. The versatile and foundational nature of Spark is such that any topic can be taken through the Spark Method. During the session, a Certified Spark Facilitator will guide the group through the different steps of the ASU Spark Method ending with an actionable plan and next steps that keeps the momentum generated in the session going.
