Facilitating innovation is a complex problem and things that work for one group may completely fail for another. You know best what your group needs and committing to tools that follow the incorrect model or focusing too long on the wrong activities can undermine your efforts.
The Cognitive City helps you try different approaches by making it easier to pull together and implement activities that lead to new ideas and lasting changes in the way your group works together.
Start by building a model for how people, skills, methods, and projects are related and then give facilitators, translators, and coordinators props that help translate technical languages, bridge silos, and create productive dialogue. Collect all of the ideas, barriers, opportunities, a-ha moments in one place so you can easily build on what’s working.
