3-Day Innovation Experience

Identify emergent business opportunities, rapidly assess their viability, and select one or more to work on for the experience. This is fully facilitated by our staff, either in our innovative workspace or another offsite location that energizes your team. The 3-day Innovation Experiences are used to identify critical business pain points and untapped opportunities, then quickly vet those ideas quantitatively and qualitatively using Customer Discovery methods. Teams will also attempt to quantify the value and the cost of the proposed solution using available data.
