Stories change conversations. Conversations lead to better questions, which in turn, accelerates learning. We work with companies using our research and strategic insights to put them at the forefront of what’s next. We actively think “disruptive innovation” and we certainly study technology and how it’s changing the way people live, work and play.
“The future is not a result of choices among alternative paths offered by the present, but a place that is created – created first in mind and will, created next in activity. The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. Paths are not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them, changes both the maker and the destination.” John Schaar, Futurist
We work with some of the world’s leading scenarists and futurists to solve upstream challenges. We have conducted large scale “immersion” and “change” programs for top teams. Our programs are designed to address the inherent unpredictable nature of the future and still keep focus on key organizational needs and short and long-term goals. While each project considers how we may help to create new sources of value and re-perceive where you want to be, we are careful to balance your stability needs with risk-taking, and internal innovation goals with the reality of external market pressures.
Yet the simplest of exchanges can result in innovative insights. Convo guarantees these insights through our innovation approach. This approach provides a framework for our process of innovation and our recommendations, and yet, allows flexibility and the ability to change tack when required. We build into our projects the belief that often the most incisive insights come in a flash, when challenged, and when given some flexibility and time to work your problem.
Our interests in facilitating insights, strategy and innovation recognize that the most important changes often come from within the organization. The energy and investment in a project and the outcome value grows exponentially when “discovery” is shared. Facilitating innovative change through workshops, learning journeys, interviews, questionnaires, storytelling, artifacts, articles, media, remarkable people, speakers forms a crucial part of our offering.
