How We Amplify Social Good

In-Depth User Research

We conduct research that gives you understanding and insights about your clients, donors, or customers that you’ve never had before. You’ll learn what truly matters to them, why they behave the way they do, and what they are most excited about. This is the foundation for growth and improvement.

Facilitated Innovation Workshops

Our workshops bring your team together to develop new ideas and solutions, translating your collective knowledge and genius into creative “outside the box” new thinking. We’re extensively trained in the most effective methods for collaboration and innovation.

Idea Testing and Validation

We help you identify which ideas are worth pursuing. They key is lightweight experiments with real customers to figure out which ideas will work before you’ve invested too much. With each experiment, you learn how to improve, and you increase your confidence that the idea will truly solve your problem.

Training and Curriculum Development

We educate your people on how to incorporate innovation techniques into their daily work. We help you create an entrepreneurial culture so your organization can operate and adapt effectively, even under conditions of extreme uncertainty.
