One-day, all encompassing, immersive experiences for teams looking to reimagine the future of their brands and/or offerings. Immersions take different shapes based on current needs of the team, playing roles as diverse as inspiration, new business modeling, and prioritizing the innovation cycle.
Leading change is tough and complex work. It requires an aligned vision that everyone involved can get behind and feel inspired to support. Innovation Immersion is designed to do just that.
Generally speaking, Innovation Immersions involve two levels of active engagement.
How it works
Innovation Immersions support your transformation goals by creating the buy-in and alignment essential to leading your team through change and sparking ideas in support of filling your innovation pipeline.
A new innovation function was formed at our client, a dental insurance and administrative claims provider, for the purpose of creating an enterprise-aligned innovation/impact program. To succeed, the leader of this new function knew he needed help in engaging and aligning the organization’s executive leadership to inspire them to actively support the program.
A one-day Innovation Immersion was conducted with cross-functional executives. Prior to this session, qualitative interviews were conducted with each executive for the purpose of understanding individual perspectives on the innovation needs and challenges of the organization.
The results of this Innovation Immersion yielded three outcomes:
- An enterprise process for considering and structuring innovation initiatives.
- Progress on an enterprise-wide review and prioritization of innovation initiatives and their value to the organization.
- An action plan to develop innovative ideas into fully developed business plans within a 6-month time frame.
