It’s based on a human centered, thinking by doing methodology especially design to bring together people from diverse backgrounds and experiences, including “insiders” (e.g.: problem owners within the company) and “outsiders” (e.g.: externals who bring fresh perspective), and together achieve high-impact results in very short time. While most of the time is dedicated to applied project work, every project step is preceded by an ad-hoc training by Innova as well as other experts.
While the methodology remains the same, formats can vary from very compact -one day or weekend- to extended- 4 to 10 weeks.
We promote CSC in particular for social innovation issues (see case study), but we employ it also for business innovation, to help foster a creative and collaborative culture.
