Pivot to What’s Next_

Business leaders need to know when to stay the course versus change direction.

Our economy has fundamentally changed, and many organizations can no longer afford to simply stay the course. It’s time to think about how we move forward. Based on your situation, it could be addressing an urgent problem or seizing an emerging opportunity.

Choose from these facilitated one-week modules:

Opportunity Shaping

Define the business problem or opportunity your organization is facing and quickly imagine new possibilities.

Over the course of one week, we’ll help your team more clearly define the business problem your organization faces, or uncover opportunities that may be emerging in the marketplace. We’ll reinforce these findings with your team’s collective knowledge about the situation and look to analogous models outside your category for inspiration. Finally, we’ll frame the opportunities through possible lenses that serve as jumping-off points for further exploration and ideation.

This module is for any team that is looking to rapidly address a brand, product, customer or workplace culture problem or opportunity. This module can also be paired with our Future Building module, to take your inspiration to pivot-worthy solutions for the future, and our Initiative Roadmapping module, to develop an actionable plan to implement your big ideas.

We’ll challenge your team to conduct feasibility analyses of your top ideas to understand what your organization can actually deliver—and identify any existing gaps that might prevent success.

This module is for any team that is looking to rapidly address a brand, product, customer or workplace culture problem or opportunity.
