Collaboration Consulting

When organisations face challenging disruptions and strategic shifts, the level of complexity involved can quickly demand more than the existing processes and culture can handle. But outsourcing to traditional teams of traditional consultants often leads to solutions that are hard to implement in practice.

Innovation Arts brings a fresh and highly effective approach to tackling these complex problems, acting as a catalyst for the enterprise’s own resources.

Our Collaboration Consulting approaches stimulate and direct your own stakeholders’ intellect and imagination, unleashing their ‘group genius’ through application of collaborative methodologies based on Applied Design Thinking and Whole System Facilitation.

We use a multi-layer approach that acts at each level of the system – top down and bottom up – ensuring alignment and integration for sustainable results.

This means we can:

  • Deliver clarity and alignment, faster…
  • Deliver better decisions, faster…
  • Maintain agility and momentum…
  • Provide integrated support for change…

…by Design.

And all the while freeing your team from the weight of managing the programme itself, so you can benefit from the best of your own resources at each stage of the programme.

There is no ‘off the peg’ solution at Innovation Arts: everything we do is bespoke to each client and their needs, and that’s why we always start with a diagnostic scoping conversation, not a proposal. These half-day sessions typically bring half a dozen of your critical stakeholders together to dig deeper into the challenges you face, helping you articulate and align on the problem and exploring potential ways forward.

Creative Communications

In a world where attention is scarce and the amount of information we receive overwhelming, powerful communications must make an immediate impact.
Our team has a wealth of experience in structuring strategic content to deliver integrated internal communications.

We partner with you at key moments – or across the full lifecycle of a strategic programme – to define, deliver and evolve your communications at each stage of the process:

Engaging stakeholders

With the visual brief, plan, and timeline, defined and key stakeholders identified, we work with your communications team to create the overarching narrative and the assets required to raise initial awareness of your programme.

Enabling the change

When the time comes to demonstrate to your organisation that something new is coming, we help you ensure key stakeholders are consulted, aligned and equipped with the right tools to share the narrative.

Exciting the organisation

When the full extent of the story is revealed, driven by leadership, communications materials may need to evolve to reflect the change created in the organisation.

Embedding behaviours

Story-telling never stops, and building in proof points and success stories refreshes the message, maintaining focus and momentum.
Everything we do is bespoke to each client and their needs, that’s why our starting point is always a collaborative scoping conversation where we work with you to rapidly create a brief and iterate at pace to align on your messaging and look and feel.

Visual themes often contain multiple evolving narratives. At every stage of the process you can count on our expertise in using visual thinking and modelling to help you manage ambiguity, facilitate alignment, and break down complex ideas to communicate them with coherence and clarity.

Our graphic facilitators will help you choose the best and most engaging format for your messaging, ranging from presentations and infographics to training tools and websites. Our portfolio includes:

  • Animation
  • Rich Pictures
  • Graphic Recording
  • InfoMurals
  • Illustrations

Game Science

Play is a powerful way of engaging people. Neuroscience and psychology show that workplace play relieves stress, improves brain function, boosts creativity and improves relationships. It is effective too: play encourages employees into creative risk-taking and creative thinking, meaning deeper engagement, and gives permission to break siloed working.

Our Game Science® platform creates collaborative engagement through online play. We’ve developed games to address topics that include purpose and culture, values and behaviours, strategy, business models and value chains and even process optimisation. They can be deployed at every stage of the employee lifecycle to ensure a consistent experience that can address both ‘hard’, factual elements of organisational life to ‘softer’, human-centred ones. The power of our games resides in the conversations they create – but not that alone.

The platform means all games are designed to scale and have have global reach.

And there is more. All games feature our unique scoring algorithms that record intuitive answers indicating how well people understand game content. Organisations are able to generate valuable engagement data over time which provides deep insights into the beliefs, attitudes and knowledge of their people and make more targeted interventions where needed to increase engagement, morale, wellbeing and hence overall productivity.
