Our design and delivery
Our creative thinking process approach is built on a familiar four stage process that’s emerged from industrial design thinking over the last few decades.

Although linear in design, the creative thinking process is flexible and dynamic, allowing facilitators and participants to explore the elements of the process at different times to generate output.

By following this method, project teams benefit from consistent language that communicates to the wider business the project status at any moment. Simultaneously, individual project members acquire tools and behaviours at each stage that accelerate thinking and stimulate new connections.

What differentiates our offer is our style of facilitation that brings the process to life employing metaphors, visuals, film and practical exercises.

Techniques

Workshop facilitation
We are not meeting facilitators. We do not facilitate other peoples’ content. We design and deliver creative workshops that get your people solving business challenges. These workshops are for designed for strategic planning or internal or consumer challenges.

Common to all our project workshop facilitation is the SCOPING phase where we explore the ambition of your project brief. Defining the parameters of any project brief is critical to successful implementation. We spend time with stakeholders and project participants on what’s expected from the project and understanding the context behind the challenge to be solved.

Part of the scoping phase is co-creating the necessary stages of the process to answer the project brief. We are commissioned for insight projects, insight & ideas projects and for the facilitation of the complete process.

We charge a fixed fee for the first SCOPING phase.
