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.Have a Chat >

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...Find Out More >

Innovation needs to translate into impactful results. Invite us to run an SIT project with you and your experts. It can be 2 days but a typical SIT project goes for 4-5 days and involves a kick-off day to identify 'dig sites' (core team only) , 2 ideation days (cross-functional experts), 1 conceptualisation and convergence day (core team) and then any ongoing support and problem solving for the implementation of ideas. We can flex to suit your needs, adjacent innovation methods and existing teams and practices.Find Out More >

The Innovation Wheel acts as an innovation heatmap for your organisation.
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.Take the quiz >
Everyone is innovating. The funny thing is that they are doing it with blinkers on: they are picking the same few methods, they are approaching things in somewhat un-innovative ways and they are embedding biases (cognitive fixedness, like-mindeness etc). Other authors focus on what it takes to innovate or create a culture of innovation; Rachel is focused on what it takes to think differently. Really. Having convinced us of the ways in which we are obscuring our view, Rachel provides us with a bias-busting method, Systematic Inventive Thinking and a mind opening approach (Rachel explains a range of alternative tools and examines where they are sharp and where they are blunt and proposes a 'shadowboard' concept to understand (we don’t know what we don’t know), organise (shadow board) and even blend them (sandboxing) to innovate 'unblinkered' for maximum impact.
Once you write the whitepaper and get results from a diagnostic, the next steps are to create an online tool and... write the book! This is underway and I’m weaving in client experiences and insights from Intrapreneurs and their bespoke innovation frameworks.
