By creating frameworks for innovation - including interview guides, assumption exercises and experiment protocols - various clients have implemented practical methods for driving innovation projects.  

One project was about transforming the innovation culture across a large organisation. With a hackaton event based on design thinking principles we introduced tangible user driven methods to ensure pilot success.

Among other method cards, the Experiment Protocol is a tangible way to manage innovation experiments.

Tangibility matters

In a time where change is a part of our daily life we need creative new ways to operate. Large organisations and startups alike need to be able to adapt quickly to changes in user behavior and navigate in a shifting market.

With a focus on continously mapping user insights, we enhance reflection within the organisation and empower productive thinking in teams.  

By using tangible method cards the mindset shifts towards a space of daring, where success and failure are both aspects of learning and moving forward.
