You can put as many processes, structures and workshops in place as you want, but ultimately innovation and doing things differently happens because of culture, values and people. This is our focus.
Our approach starts and ends with people and supporting them. It’s as simple (and as complex) as that. We believe (without pre-supposing outcomes) that taking this through to its logical conclusion, alongside the appetite in our partner organisations for a ‘lean’ business, there are exciting possibilities for the innovation of service delivery alongside incubation of impactful new enterprise models.
Impact Seed’s Innovation Hub design model brings together a consortium of specialists across disciplines including:
Phase 1 involves deep understanding and engagement with the community of clients and partners – what do they know about their community, what don’t they know, what do they want to see? We help surface ideas for experiments that already exist and unearth the motivation and activation from community to make them happen
Phase 2 of the Hub design model is supporting staff and community members to implement experiments and pilots in a variety of contexts. This is partnered with possibilities for community activation through crowd-sourcing. Phase 2 is is delivered with place-based support in residency with our clients, a residency that shifts when it needs to.
Embedding innovation in the business model is the most challenging and often overlooked aspect of traditional innovation programs. With effective monitoring, measurement and change management we are able to support executive and operational staff to package and integrate innovation with the broader business.
