Rachel is a certified facilitator of Systematic Inventive Thinking (S.I.T.)

Unearth more creative and doable solutions – using what you have.

Brand DNA

Let’s come up with coherent and compelling answers to the big questions about your business: Why do you do what you do? Where are you going? What’s in in for the customer? (which customers?), So what for your employees, what do you stand for? Who are you as a brand?

Manage your Value Cycle

The most meaningful and pragmatic way of tackling your marketing strategy is to work through how you manage value from 'understanding' through to 'measuring'. A neat and helpful framework I adapted from my MBA and have used effectively with a range of clients in strategic work.

Creative Strategy & breakthrough thinking

We know we need to be strategic but all too often, our strategic thinking is bound by tools & frameworks that are cognitively distant from the real world and will not lead to the creative solutions we require. Rachel offers robust ways to challenge assumptions and biases in a systematic way, break existing connections and making new ones, harness constraints and even flip problems and threats into resources! It's very exhilarating and growth mindset!

Training

One of the many upsides of SIT is that it is so learnable. Give your teams the skills to harness the SIT method on demand and to understand when to use it with other toolsets. Ask for a training proposal for your company or in your area. See 'Solutions' tab.

Productivity & Processes

When you want to be more productive, you often eliminate something. I tackle productivity & process improvements differently. I will take you down unexplored paths getting to ideas faster.

New Product Development (NPD)

Have me help you to develop new products, challenge or improve existing ones and build an innovation pipeline.

Creative Problem Solving

S.I.T offers a problem solving approach that not only embraces the problem and challenges assumptions but helps push the inventiveness of your ideas further.

Innovation Strategy

I can help you develop an innovation strategy, framework and community that fits your strategy, aspirations and culture.

SIT-type 'Hackathons'

We bring together some of the best components of a 'hackathon' but make them more efficient by using the rigour of thinking tools and the discipline of using what we have. The result is more novel yet viable ideas.

Keynote Presentations

Rachel is a vibrant and engaging speaker. Her presentations shift thinking about innovation. Notable events included Ci2017 & 2019 Innov8rs Singapore, NLDS 2018, CPA Congress, Innov8rs Sydney, EIS 2018 and UTS BCII program, Consult Australia 2019, NLDS 2019 and Elevate (Paris), NZ Tunnelling Conference, IBM L&K Event Dec 2022.

Workshop Facilitation

Workshops are a good way to discover the relevance, disruptiveness and efficiency of SIT thinking. Workshops may be discovery days, myth buster session, creative team building sessions or days aimed at triggering fresh thinking in the business. Most SIT workshops are hybrid sessions in that they blend skills and results. If you wish to lean more towards upskilling, look into a training course. If you would like to go for results, consider a more in-depth SIT project. Rachel also runs marketing workshops around the brand and value proposition.

Masterclasses

Masterclasses can serve as discovery or reinforcement sessions for Systematic Inventive Thinking. They can be 1-3 hours and can cover any SIT application: problem solving, productivity, process enhancement. They include a good blend of theory and application.

Face-to-Face Innovation Training

We can design programs around your availability and preferences but courses that have been tried and tested are: - 2-day basic innovation training courses where you learn 3-4 SIT thinking tools and discover our powerful problem solving method through to advanced courses for intrapreneurs and coaches. - 2 x 2-day courses where you learn more facilitation skills and practice mini-sessions - Intensive train-the-trainer courses - mentoring of innovation leads. Get in touch for pricing, logistics and testimonials.

Facilitation skills

Once you have seen the impact of SIT, you are likely to want to build up a community of practice and become self-sufficient in your organisation. We can train up facilitators to get them running mini-sessions and, with practice and mentoring, co-facilitating SIT projects. The 2 x 2-day formula (with 10-day break) is excellent for training internal facilitators and giving them a day of mini-session practice. Don't be fooled, there is an art to getting people past their cognitive bias... This is great for team building too!

Hackathons or Thinkaspaces

Imagine if you could take the best of a hackathon (engaging facilitation, intensity, diverse groups, focus, divergence, convergence, testing and prototyping) but add thinking tools that radically shift your thinking – without resorting to brainstorming! I can facilitate this for you.

Success stories

" Rachel recently delivered the SIT Foundation course to my team. She is a phenomenal facilitator (juggling online and in-person sessions) and provided participants with exceptional business insight and thoughtful approaches to solving problems and the process of innovation. The course was interactive, well-paced and concepts were clearly explained with great examples to ensure that everyone had a good understanding of how to use each of the SIT tools. The training concluded with each participant having to deliver a short mini session, which did wonders to embed the knowledge gained over the 6 weeks. I highly recommend Rachel and the SIT framework. "
Jessica Gallagher — University of Queensland
" Rachel recently worked with Savour and Grace to help us to continue to strengthen our unique culture. Rachel's nuanced but laser focused facilitation style really helped us to define and refine our purpose, customer commitment and values. Consultants and culture normally leaves plenty of room for unambiguous non actionable waffle. Rachel's impact has been tangible and lasting. If you need external assistance around Culture and values I highly recommend Rachel. "
Sam Hurst — Savour and Grace
" ...one of the best training courses I have ever done! Simple systematic Implementation that can be used on any issue. So many worked examples! The 1 hour mini sessions are the bow on top. No one should be able to go back to their workplace without the confidence to be able to implement the tools to their work AND roll it out to their colleagues. "
Tyler Coady — Ford, Melbourne
" Rachel is a stellar facilitator - authentic, vibrant, passionate and hugely supportive. I loved working with her, exploring creative methods with students in the Bachelor of Creative Intelligence and Innovation (BCII). I'm hoping we get the chance to work together again soon - she's the best! "
Bem le Hunte, Director of Creative Intelligence & Innovation — UTS
" Rachel is professional, enthusiastic and insightful. The workshop was a great success. Personally, I find Rachel flexible, approachable and culturally sensitive, which makes her an amazing business partner to work with. "
Kitty Chen, Polyglot — Polyglot Group
" Rachel is capable of challenging the leaders to stretch their thinking and check for blind spots. Her work is delivered in a unique and customised way. I particularly value Rachel's careful and strategic planning to maximise value and insights in each session. Her skilful facilitation and her mastery of the SIT method have definitely powered up our capability in problem solving and inventive thinking. "
Alison Fahey — Woodside
" We recently engaged Rachel to help us put together our marketing strategy and I have no hesitation in saying that the outcome of the work Rachel did for us was outstanding. "
Scott Deane, CEO — Learning Seat
" Rachel sure knows how to bust up our fixed way of thinking. Fresh Select engaged Rachel to assist in developing a culture of innovation. We were mentally challenged to tackle problems with a different mindset (and using various tools) and boy was it powerful. As a company, Fresh Select have already implemented new processes as a result of our brilliant learnings. Thanks Rachel. "
Elisa Walerys - Director of Transition Human Resources — Fresh Select

The Innovation Wheel

The Innovation Wheel

The Innovation Wheel

The Innovation Wheel acts as an innovation heatmap for your organisation.

The Innovation Wheel

The 5-point scale works in a heatmap where the WARM colours are problematic and the COOLER colours suggest that things are looking good. The scale starts with red where innovation is little more than corporate speak and ends with blue where things are “chilled” and where innovation is integrated across the board.

UNBLINKERED - The Quirky Biases that get in the way of creative thinking ... and how to bust them

No matter where you are on the creative scale, improving your skills will have a positive effect. What if one of the major impediments to your ability to think creatively and innovate were your unconscious biases? Unblinkered is a playful exploration of 19 blinkers that Rachel has seen at play in her experience as an intrapreneur, driving an innovation community in a corporate and as an innovation trainer and coach . Some of them are well known, others she is calling out and encourages you to recognise them and know when and how to use them and when to lose them.

The short of it:

I help organisations unearth ideas that are hiding in plain view. This means elegant, feasible, resourceful solutions using what you have. I run Systematic Inventive Thinking (S.I.T.) in ANZ. Get in touch: rachel@rachelaudige.com

The long of it:

We are born creative but not everyone stays that way. I can help you become efficient and resourceful creative thinkers again.

There are lots of things holding us back but what I encounter in every organisation is cognitive fixedness. That is that state of 'stuckness' when we cannot see alternative ways of doing things. I believe that innovation is often the result of this fixedness being broken. Break this and you will be able to shorten a process, fill your product pipeline, stress test a project design, de-risk a schedule, rethink your business model, make your messaging stickier or come up with more resourceful and radical solutions to your problems. I promise to shift what you thought about creativity.

If you're after the SKILLS go straight to my training platform, click here. You can get a taste of Systematic Inventive Thinking in the Starter Course or dive straight into a Self-Paced SIT Foundations Course, for 8 modules packed with years of experience with the method.

If you want RESULTS, request a workshop on a pain point in your business. We can do a Discovery session where you dip your toe in or you can do a Deep Dive Project and go for higher impact.
