Inspiring Us

Innovation has never been more important—or more in demand. Yet the half-life of new innovations continues to grow ever-shorter. In the fast-paced Internet age, our competitors learn from—and emulate—our innovations almost as soon as we introduce them. These dynamics create tremendous pressure for organizations of every kind to develop reliable, systematic approaches to ideation. That’s why we’ve developed the Inspiring Us series of workshops. Innovating on-demand requires that we seek inspiration, which really means that, rather than counting on raw, innate creativity, we look for clues that direct and shape our creative energy. Our workshops offer tools, techniques, and their own inspiration to serve as an accelerant for your innovation efforts.

We believe innovation and creativity are essential for sustainability and growth. The inspiration is all around us.
