How Do You Innovate?

The best teams incorporate innovation into what they do every day.  It is a part of their DNA; its how they operate, how they build solutions to big, complex problems.  But creating that culture of innovation doesn’t happen overnight.  It takes intentional practice, a continuous application of learning to building what works in their organization.

At Inceodia we use a learning loop methodology derived from the Lean Startup toolkit.  The premise of an innovation learning loop is that the desired result of a team’s effort is not a solution but instead learning about the problem and exploring different ways to solve it.  All of the programs start by teaching an approach to innovation, followed by coaching teams through applying that approach to solve a problem for their customers.  

The desired result of an innovation learning loop is a better understanding of the problem and different ways to solve the problem

Human-Centered Innovation Program

Human-centered design has the power to transform the culture of an organization and harness the energy, enthusiasm and insight of a workforce engaged in service to the “human” at the center. This program teaches teams human-centered design methodologies and how to apply them in organizations that have ideas for innovating their business.

Our Human-Centered Innovation Intensive Program starts with a bootcamp for teams to learn about how to apply design thinking to explore their ideas for innovation.  Then the team is coached through 10 weeks of exploration of their idea for desirability, feasibility and viability.  The program culminates in development of a proposal that summarizes their learning and outlines their plan for their next learning loop, or launch of a prototype to be tested with their internal or external customers.
