impackathon*

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.

These can be run as remote and in-person events.

Drive Impact

The “innovation industry” would have you believe your company is divided in two: Operational execution & Innovation.

You “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 manage newly remote workers or how to leverage emerging technology to better address customer needs.

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.
