Innovation Workshops

Ideation Sessions

Clients and prospective clients come together to explain their challenges. Our team listens and identifies what the industry could do better to meet these needs. Ideas discovered during Innovation Workshops are further developed in Innovation Projects and Sprints.

Strategic Initiatives

Often involving existing clients, Innovation Projects are defined project initiatives that improve upon or expand our current operations and best practices. They are a segue to Innovation Sprints.

Kickstarting Innovation

Completed by cross-functional teams from a variety of departments, an Innovation Sprint is an intensive five-day event that starts with a new product or program idea and ends with a functional, user-tested prototype. A successful Innovation Sprint prototype will move on to full development as part of our company roadmap.
