Igniting Innovation!

Build your innovation capabilities 

This is a powerful session that will build your innovation skills while you solve a core problem or unearth new opportunities. In our Discovery environment we explore the key challenges and opportunities your team faces, and prioritize those that have the greatest potential to make a real difference. Participants then form design teams and use innovation techniques such as rapid prototyping to explore the area, generate ideas, and co-design real-world solutions that deliver measurable benefits, enhanced people experience and increased business performance.

Define Your Intent

Shape a vision for what is possible

Key to the success of any initiative is to co-create a shared understanding of the intent, and to shape a vision for what is possible.  In this think-tank environment your key thought leaders and partners gather in a think-tank environment to co-create the desired future and describe the outcomes-based solutions that will achieve it. Using innovation techniques we co-design an Intent Statement that is your call to action. It describes why this work is important, what the future looks like, and how you will get there.  The Statement is your key asset used to govern and direct the work, to secure commitment, and to invite stakeholder collaboration. 

Design Lab

Bring a new idea to life

Dive deeply into your highest-value ideas and strategic possibilities in our mobile or virtual incubator lab. Build a prototype to test your idea’s feasibility, desirability and viability.  Prototyping your design provides insightful answers to key questions and provides evidence-based direction early on. It de-risks your idea, increases your confidence and helps you choose amongst options with the highest potential for success.

Laura is a master facilitator who inspires her participants to lead with vision, to think outside of the box and to design realistic solutions for a better future.
