Visions and beliefs:
“By unleashing human creativity, passion and diversity, we can solve problems that matter to business and society. Once you untether the search for solutions from an individual, department or company, amazing things happen. Problems are solved better, faster, and at a lower cost than ever before.
Our methodology is called Challenge Driven Innovation, an innovation framework that accelerates traditional innovation outcomes by leveraging open innovation and crowdsourcing along with defined methodology, process, and tools to help organizations develop and implement actionable solutions to their key problems, opportunities, and challenges.
The global economy is forcing organizations to attack problems with all the brainpower they can muster both inside and outside the enterprise. Unlocking the potential of millions of people to work productively on pressing problems is the power of Challenge Driven Innovation.
And we believe that’s the future.”
