To de-risk innovation and prepare for what comes next.
We're in an extraordinary moment in business today.
We have a technology revolution (which is reshaping industries). A purpose revolution (which is about asking: Why do we exist? What business are we really in?). And a work revolution (that involves how we work not just where we work). Not to mention a climate emergency and numerous other complex challenges.
All of these things are creating the opportunity to redesign business from top to bottom.
Many CEOs today are asking the question, what comes next? How do we prepare ourselves for what we can’t even see yet? We know we have all of these problems and opportunities, but how do we get to that next answer?
It's a jigsaw puzzle. And these are exactly the kinds of questions that Studio Jigsaw was born to help solve.
Because the shifts we’re talking about now, are about getting to new outcomes. About rethinking the value we create in the world. About invention and reinvention. Not about squeezing out more efficiency.
This needs a skillset that’s not taught in business school. That's where design thinking comes in.
First made famous by Tim Brown of IDEO (the global design and innovation firm), design thinking is a method of how to get there. It's an orientation towards seeing new possibilities. It’s about engaging with people through a structured process (sprints) that involves listening, learning, synthesising, imagining, making and iterating - to shape new solutions.
These solutions can be new brands, business models, products and services, experiences, interactions, systems or communications. It can be also be a new organisational design, capabilities and team structures.
Our Sprints and accelerators are programmes designed to help companies de-risk innovation and incubate new ideas within the business:
- We work with you to uncover and define the core purpose and story that will shape the future of the brand and business.
- We collaborate with you and your team to invent and develop the innovations, business models, products, and experiences that make those stories real in the world.
- We tailor our sprints and accelerators depending on your business objectives. No two are alike.
We believe design thinking is core to creativity and innovation. And putting it to work within organisations has never been more important as it is today.
