“Instead of thinking outside the box, get rid of the box” – Deepak Chopra
We like to label and put things in pidgeon holes or boxes. It feels comfortable and gives us a sense of control.
These boxes are sometimes your organisations hidden and implicit boundaries that can prevent creative initiatives and innovation from being truly successful.
Every business has an ‘extant’ culture – the reality of relationships beyond labels and hierarchies. Add to this various business systems and processes and is it any wonder that many internal efforts to innovate fail?
Speed is essential but so often processes become broken, politics stall decision making and resources become stretched.
The answer is to partner with my new #innovationlab service.
I sit creatively outside of your brand and business. In this position I can adopt a more worldly, holistic viewpoint.
Agility – it is easier for me as an external partner to navigate your Eco-system while keeping a nimble mindset. Internal bureaucracy does not effect my work.
Better Access – I am on the outside looking in. Psychologically, people are more likely to share their true perspective and ideas with me because I am not affiliated with the established business hierarchy.
Deeper Talent Pool – I can develop a deeper talent pool that is laser focused on what is needed to get you to the next level. I can gather a dedicated team that offers fresh perspectives and caters to creativity.
Thinking about innovation from the outside-in may be just what you need to stay ahead of the game and truly make a difference.
