Idea to Implementation
WHAT VALUE DO WE CREATE?
Our clients experience new ideas, new revenue, and new impact as they transform processes, products, services, and experiences through innovation.
WHO NEEDS THIS SERVICE?
Innovation should be a core competency of every organization, but becomes especially important to organizational navigating an uncertain future. Innovating, most concisely defined as “ideas to valuable action”, is the ability to generate new ideas, put them into action, and create value. Innovation is a key driver of organizational transformation. We contend that all organizations should seek to strengthen themselves to match their purpose.
WHAT DO WE DO?
Sierra Learning Solutions provides multiple services across the innovation spectrum. We guide organizations through three phases: generating ideas, moving to action, and creating value.
Expeditionary Strategy CraftingApplying design thinking to strategy crafting brings new tools to a critical organizational need and requires four stages in the design process. These distinct but highly interdependent stages provide a sound foundation for a large variety of possible planning tools and experiences. Often lasting three to twelve months or more, what results is a clear roadmap for implementation and a fully engaged organization.
Problem-Based DesignWhen a clear, or even hazy, problem is the center of the task at hand, we employ our six-stage innovation approach that includes collaborative design; discovery and assessment; divergent thinking and ideation; convergent planning, selecting; prototyping; and implementation, tracking, and adjusting course.
Traditional Strategic PlanningWe customize solutions to meet each client’s needs by drawing on proven approaches from long-range scenario planning, to action planning, to designing competitive advantage.
