We help Global 1000 companies unleash their people’s creativity to drive impact.
*Impackathons are 2-3 day “hackathon” style events where teams don’t simply code, but apply human-centered design, rapid experimentation and agile principles to validate ideas that address real world business issues.
The “innovation industry” would have you believe your company is divided in two: You should “exploit” the “known” side of the business, and “explore” for the future.
But uncertainty exists across the organization.
Impact comes from reducing uncertainty, whether learning how to leverage emerging technology to better address customer needs or how to retain your best employees.

Don’t merely “innovate” for the future, solve for uncertainty wherever it exists.
Choose businesses challenges that represent need, whether customer facing or internal.
Needs exist across the business, from improving core efficiency, to better knowing customers and markets, to laying the foundation for growth.
Innovation is for Everyone
Uncertainty is the only sure thing and it exists at some level everywhere in the business.
Everyone needs to learn a new mindset in order to balance learning and executing.
Unleash your people’s natural creativity to solve wicked problems.
