OUR INNOVATION

THINK TANK

We believe Design Thinking as a tool could help solve some of the complexity of today's problems.
Our Innovation Think Tank is a Design Thinking approach to problem solving. It aids us in the creation of out of the box solutions and innovative ideas.

A PROBLEM SOLVING

APPROACH TO DESIGN

Over the years Paul Winslow, FAIA, perfected a technique to facilitate large groups (using a design-thinking approach to finding innovative solutions). He's been very successful in creating some out-of-the-box architectural environments using this technique, a technique he developed over the 40 years he was a Managing Partner at Orcutt/Winslow.

 

The winslow + partners'  team uses this design-thinking technique as a platform for design (with architecture or business solutions). They call it their innovation think tank.

 

winslow + partners' Innovation Think Tank process is a dynamic methodology that enables diverse ideas to move toward effective outcomes with clarity and unity. Utilizing a unique, visual brainstorming model originally developed to support the design of complex educational facilities, it can turn any organization's wide-ranging needs and perspectives into comprehensive, realistic solutions.

 

It addresses organizational needs from strategic planning to facilities development.  Our Innovation Think Tank helps turn the clutter of diverse ideas into realistic plans for the future.  

It is equally effective for:

  • small-business and corporate decision-makers

  • government entities

  • civic organizations and institutions

  • not-for-profit boards of directors

  • church planners

  • individuals

It enables the development of:

  • an organizational tool kit for evaluating options

  • group exploration of divergent ideas

  • holistic and realistic solutions

  • practical applications from diverse perspectives

  • a common vocabulary

  • team building

It creates an exploratory environment that is:

  • visually stimulating

  • fast-paced and invigorating

  • comprehensive

  • engaging and encouraging
