Meetings are increasingly about informing and aligning rather than improving and inspiring. How do we do more of the latter?
As long as there have been people, there have been meetings. One on one meetings; team meetings; organisation-wide, all-hands-on-deck meetings; check-in-meetings; weekly update meetings; and many more.
Meetings absorb more time and drain morale more consistently than any other corporate activity according to The Economist. They tend to be about getting work done rather than how to get better at doing the work. They are increasingly about informing and aligning rather than improving and inspiring.
Yet innovation doesn’t happen in a vacuum. At a time when the nature of work is changing, when employees are not only expected to perform a function but to provide dramatic, new outcomes – creating an environment for creative thinking can be a daunting challenge.
How can you make it happen at your company?
Putting Design Thinking to Work
Why design thinking is core to innovation and why its the skillset we need to solve big problems.
Start with Why
Framing better questions can help us find better answers.
Strategy is a Team Sport
Working in Sprints can help us go further and faster.
CrossFit for the Brain
Our Sprints take inspiration from product hackathons at which multi-disciplinary teams come together in a timed event to produce a prototype or a solution to a problem.
They are customised to your needs to provide actionable, objective, and integrated thinking that bridges the gap between innovation, design and communication.
Our starting point is brand. We believe a clear brand is the most powerful way to align stakeholders and mobilize teams to build real, concrete solutions for change.
