Our Manifesto

dont play

Innovation is fancy. Everyone wants to do nice brainstormings and have wild ideas. We see companies playing the innovation theater all the time.
It’s all over social media.

Everyone seems smarter than the others. But we know from experience that innovation is hard, it’s unsettling, messy, complex and more often than not it’s not conclusive.
It’s a numbers’ game. The more you try, the more likely you are to succeed.

We push through the hard times, we reflect on it together with our clients and we find ways to keep teams making progress against the odds.

And at times we decide to let go and help the teams involved mourn over their perceived failure, rebound and come out
of the experience even stronger.

dont be

User-centricity won’t save the world. We recognize that to solve the world’s toughest challenges, we cannot rely
on satisfying the end-users alone.

There are other stakes and stakeholders to be considered.
We strive to create multi-win opportunities based on a profound understanding of the interconnections between different problems and stakeholders.

We help innovators to understand these interactions in a systemic view and how to generate beneficial solutions for many or all related stakeholders, not only the company
and their customers.

focus on

Methodology frameworks are helpful, no question. They are necessary to speak a common language with our clients,
and to reassure. But methodologies don’t create impact. Results do.

Therefore, we are quick in tweaking methods to the purpose
at hand, blending tools and techniques as we see fit.
We design purposeful interventions. Therefore, we spend
a lot of time to better understand and define the expected outcomes, develop success criteria for our interventions
and aim for measurable results.

Then, once we get started, we do everything that’s in
our power to achieve those goals and hit our targets.

get seduced

The creative sparks are the easy part of innovation. We get seduced by wild ideas and most of us love to diverge into unknown territories and discover new opportunities. Not all of those ideas are winners.

90% of them are not. But for the ones that resonate the most, the ones we truly believe in, the ones we fall for, a serious journey to fulfillment starts.

To us, innovation is “bringing something new to life”. This means that we move beyond the easy part, we push through the honeymoon phase. We are ready to run the marathon of realization, to endure the pain that comes with it to be able to reap the rewards of all the hard work. For the ideas that win our hearts, we go through hell and back.

dont pratice

The challenge is in the process, not in the co-creation workshops. Innovation initiatives always generate a high level of energy just before and during the actual collaboration events, but innovation does not happen overnight.

Therefore, the key is to create the conditions for continued collaboration beyond single events. We know how to deal with the risk of a slow-down in team dynamics and we design our approaches around a series of shorter workshops, instead of one single event.
Only if workshops are clearly defined as steps in an overarching process, the intended transformations can take form and develop over time.

dont look

Short cycles of work, a taste for experimentation, and the desire and ability to quickly provide practical solutions are more important than ever in an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous world. We design our interventions around these principles. And we love Post Mortems!

it is not about

We believe in our responsibilities for the upcoming generations. We recognize that we don’t do enough collectively and individually to live up to this responsibility. But we try to become a little bit better every day. We also know that it’s better to do it together than alone, easier to motivate ourselves and more difficult to hide out.

Therefore, we always ask the question: will this (innovation) make the world a better place ? There is no easy answer to this, but the simple act of asking the question and reflecting upon it is a tiny step into the right direction.
