Do you have the right ways to get there?

Institute of Next has developed a selection of methodologies that will enable your people to envision and engage into the necessary transformation.

A successful transition to a new value generation model requires a systematic approach.

We have the methods to help you do it.

Ideas about the coming world

A talk on how what we used to see as “radical” becomes completely “normal“, very fast. An inspiration to dare you to think more radically about new solutions that can add value to our business.

These days the difference between what is normal and what is radical is virtually nothing. We can expect almost anything from science and technology, and from social behaviour.

Managing and communicating such accelerated development, which is often incomprehensible to the majority of people, will be one of the great challenges of the near future.

Transforming through high-growth people

NEXT enables your teams to dare to think in a ten years’ perspective about a complex economy and sophisticated markets. That may prove to be the only way to stay competitive in the next 5 years.

The participants explore ways to improve or disrupt the company’s current business operating system, across 4 main components:

 

Market engagement: responding faster to market needs.

 

People dynamics: new forms of organization and talent management.

 

Technology enablers: new tools, methods and processes.

 

Value engines: ways to rapidly transform ideas into value.

These are some examples:

Building an innovation team

In the VERNE® model, the innovation process is structured around the systematic detection of problems and opportunities within the organisation’s business model.

Then, a group of innovation cells are created to work on new proposals and prototypes that respond to those problems and opportunities, following the VERNE® process.

The selected prototypes can be eventually developed into projects by the corresponding business areas.

These are some examples:

Connecting innovation teams

At Co-society®, teams belonging in smart business units from companies across different industries work together to learn from one another and share their best innovation practices.

Co-society® is a platform to facilitate the exchange of innovation practices and experiences among companies in different industries.

Bespoke unique projects to foster synergies among high-performing people

Throughout all these years, we have developed some projects involving high-performing teams of scientists, artists, athletes and even children. Every project ends up as a unique result, built from a taylor-made approach, that challenges our team to overcome any eventual mental barriers and pushes it to explore broad new perspectives.

Here are some examples:
