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?
The most meaningful and pragmatic way of tackling your marketing strategy is to work through the value cycle and consider how you understand, create, promote, deliver, capture, sustain and measure value.
Marketing is also about embracing constraints and knowing how to use what you have - even your challenges and threats - to your advantage. We can map out your values, solve problems creatively and harness creative advertising patterns to sharpen ideas.
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.
When we want to be more productive, we intuitively eliminate. SIT tackles productivity & process enhancement more counter-intuitively & takes teams down unexplored paths getting to ideas faster. Get in touch to receive case studies relevant to your industry.
A number of innovation methods help you evolve existing - or develop new - products. SIT ensures that you suspend certain biases that might get in the way of exciting new ideas and gives you thinking tools that give you a higher likelihood of unearthing an inventive idea.
This is a problem solving approach that not only embraces the problem and challenges assumptions but helps push the inventiveness of your ideas further.
SIT has helped organisations across all industries to build innovation strategies, frameworks and communities. Each one is bespoke but we can help you draw on the best ideas to fit your business.
We bring together some of the best components of a hackathon but make them more efficient by applying the tools, workflow & principles of inside-the-box thinking. The result is more novel yet viable ideas.
Rachel is an engaging and highly interactive speaker. She will work the room and get everyone involved. Her presentations are entertaining and 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). Her next event is at the NZ Tunnelling Conference on the pros and cons of tunnel vision.See her in action >
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 >
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.
We can design programs around your availability and preferences but courses that have been tried and tested are: - 2-day basic 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.Find Out More >
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!Find Out More >

Innovation needs to translate into impactful results. Invite us to run an SIT project with you and your experts to scan for blind spots and get to ideas faster. It can be as short as half a day or 4-5 days with a kick-off day to identify 'dig sites' (core team only) , 2 ideation days (cross-functional experts), a 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, pre-existing innovation frameworks and existing teams and practices.Find Out More >
Imagine if you could take the best of a hackathon (top facilitation, intensity, diverse groups, focus, divergence, convergence, testing and prototyping) but add thinking tools that bust cognitive bias, use the resources you have & give you a higher chance of coming up with something inventive and viable...
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.
