We’ve worked with executives and teams from start-ups to large, complex organizations accomplishing things new, bold, and different.
Through our years of experience in strategic planning, design thinking and agile, branding, change management, and enterprise innovation systems we gained the skills and real-world experience to help organizations tackle the challenges of today and prepare for the future.
Disruption should not happen to you, it should happen because of you.
We’ve created unique methods that combine consumer trends with traditional scenario planning techniques to imagine future brand environments that currently don’t exist.
New product innovation requires challenging “truths” to create bold opportunities.
We guide inter-disciplinary teams through processes that activate insights and accelerate products to market.
Jobs Driven Innovation
You’ll discover new ways to innovate products and services using the Jobs-To-Be-Done (JTBD) approach to identifying the key outcomes that your customers desire in products and services. This approach allows organizations to discover and assess the “outcomes” that matter most to consumers across Strategyn’s Universal Job Map, often revealing previously unidentified high potential strategic opportunities for innovation.
Turn opportunities into products and services by moving ideas from concept to minimal viable product. Design sprints are a series of disciplined and evidence based team activities, where funding is metered based on validated learning from iterative “build and test experiments”. We coach decision makers and teams through sprints iterating with increasing complexity as design criteria is clarified and solutions are validated with feedback from customers and other stakeholders.
Create and test actionable product, service, and business model concepts. Concept Lab is a multi-day workshop where your core team and relevant stakeholders generate a large number of ideas through a series of carefully selected ideation exercises. Following ideation, we work with core team members to sort, group and prioritize ideas into opportunity spaces and define actionable next steps. We then rapidly test the top ideas with customers through immersions, focus groups, and interviews help frame your value proposition.
Accelerate innovation efforts within your organization by providing leaders and teams with innovation tools, methods, and leadership skills. Tailored specifically to the individual or team need, we provide business relevant, hands-on coaching in areas like empathy, business model canvas, design thinking, journey mapping, innovation management, leadership mindset and culture, and other innovation related topics.
Human and organizational systems must evolve to thrive in times of change. We help organizations turn change into competitive advantage by designing workplace eco-systems that inspire employees, align leadership, focus resources and streamline processes.
Strategic Agility & Change
We work with leaders and teams to create organizations that constantly learn and adapt. Using our 3P+3C framework, we identify areas of strength and opportunity within your organization’s current ecosystem, and introduce practices aimed at improving strategic agility and resilience from the top down and bottom up.
Many innovation efforts fail because they are mistakenly managed the same way other business efforts managed. We work with innovation leaders to introduce new agile management structures, processes, metrics and mindsets that enable organizations to accelerate and sustain successful innovation.
Leading companies are awakening to the interconnection between workplace culture and a thriving business. We leverage a unique suite of tools, including storytelling and artificial intelligence, to help leaders uncover and understand the organization's current culture and its linkages with business performance. These insights inform human-centered action plans to improve employee engagement, increase collaboration, and improve operational performance.
Empathy & Innovation Mindset Workshops
Greatness begins with mindset. By reminding ourselves that customers and employees are people first, we’ve developed workshops that connect leaders and teams with the human experience, deepen empathy, and challenge status quo mindsets. From dealing with business uncertainty, taking risks, dealing with failure, or building collaboration and trust; our workshops target the organizational levers that shift culture.
Strategic Planning Retreats
Don’t just “check a box.” We design and lead customized single and multi-day strategic planning sessions to surface big questions, challenge assumptions, provide direction and drive organizational alignment.
