TURNING COMPLEXITY INTO SIMPLICITY IS

What we do

 

 
 

Capability Building

We build an innovation capability into your organisation

 
 

Build a design-centric culture

We guide teams of employees through projects using the design process. We help executives select the most valuable and appropriate projects and allocate budgets towards them. We help establish a continuous cycle of identifying business needs, recruiting multi-disciplinary teams, and running design projects. Over time every employee can join a team and implement a solution. Each person who has run a project is automatically a mentor to teams running their first project. This scales the capability exponentially until our input is no longer needed and the organisation has acquired the capability. 

Own a new set of capabilities

Companies who have found the greatest benefit from continuous innovation have done so by building a permanent ability to create into their operations. This is cheaper than using outside consultants, it builds employees’ own skills and it creates a sustainable ability to continuously innovate. In addition, it creates a new work experience resulting in more engaged employees.
