Hackathons for coders is nothing new.  A hackathon is basically an event where people collaborate to build or develop something (typically software) as quickly as they can - often they'll be given a set time to finish a task. But - as hackathons often spur on great innovation,  how about thinking of 'hackathons' for non-coders? 

Hackathons are about collaboration, learning and bringing different skills together in order to achieve transformation. Applying the structure and the processes from hackathons could help take people outside their daily roles for some intense idea and development sessions with a real focus on innovation.
