We work with our clients to brainstorm, explore, and evolve solutions - both physical and digital - to pressing social and structural issues in their immediate work, community and social spaces.
We commence our engagement with a series of exploratory Interviews, Workshops, and Assessments.
For both start-ups and established entities: our key objective is to harness Innovation organically from within - through self-guided work, group sessions or, in a more sustained process, with the assistance of our team of accomplished business mentors.
No matter the size of your organisation, or enterprise ,
we work with you to:
Assess your Innovation Current State; Readiness and Potential
In relation to your peers, your operating environment and global trends
Together we formulate a process or programme that addresses your key strategic requirements and sustainability needs in line with your organisational culture and envisioned future state.
The process could include:
An enterprise-wide implementation encouraging an innovative culture change;
Establishing a separate innovation stream, project space or laboratory;
Or a hybrid of methodologies, including workshops, lectures, off-site visits and even events and exhibitions, that will engender a new way of understanding the workplace - and implementing the change.
Usually a range of more personalised consultations - mentoring being a primary tool, but often supplemented by multi-team workshops, seminars and guided workbook processes.
We join you "in the trenches" getting our hands as dirty as yours.
