A one-day in-house event to bring out the best of your team, department or company.
What is blocking innovation? How can we make our workplace more innovative?
"If you want to produce something truly new and useful, you cannot know - by definition - exactly where to go. That's why leading innovation is not - and cannot be - about being a visionary. The last thing you want is a team that defers to you to set a course ..... If your goal is innovation, then your role must instead be to create an environment - a setting, a context, an organisation - where people are willing and able to do the hard work of innovation themselves: to collaborate, learn through trial and error, and make integrated decisions."
- Linda Hall, Greg Brandeau, Emily Truelove & Kent Linebeck, Collective Genius
Open Space enables this collaborative innovation - at scale across teams and departments.
We Invite you to participate in a cross-functional conversation exploring change in your workplace to be more innovative: an Innovation Hackathon Day
"Open Space is a party for ideas." - Colin Newlyn, participant as Caterfly's Shift event.

You can't magically transform your organisation and its culture by wishful thinking. However, you can kick-start the process, while addressing your Burning Issue.
In our 'Innovation Hackathon Day', everyone in the organisation, department or section is invited to play and get creative around a theme based on your needs and your context.
Participation is optional, cross-functional and fun. We use an 'Open Space' format to harness the power of self-organisation, with everyone free to follow their enthusiasm in pursuit of the goal.
"Co-creation by the 'diversity of many' is an absolute best practice. 'People own what they help create', Byron Rogers says. This is so true. Every time you ask people to adopt something they haven't contributed to, you waste resources and undermine engagement."
Celine Schillinger, Head of Quality Innovation and Engagement, Sanofi Pasteur (in The
Employee Engagement Alliance)
That's why everyone across the organisation should be engaged in co-creation.

The Innovation Hackathon is not about innovation techniques. It is about inviting a diversity of many to contribute and co-create themselves. It is about building the right conditions for an innovation culture to thrive.
An innovation culture which is conducive to people being innovative and being willing to share their ideas and solutions.
A one day event can't do all that on its own, but it can support a deeper impetus and a broader programme, or be the starting point - in a bite-sized, 'suck it and see' trial, with immediate results.
