Organizations that develop and deploy interventions for complex problems need to be innovative yet efficient to have impact. Innovation Managers have used the Cognitive City® platform to connect stakeholders with researchers and project leaders. They’ve used the City to spark new ideas and opportunities and to optimize teams. Custom data applications to find insights about how to best identify, treat, and prevent disease. Perspective-expanding visualizations and search tools enable Innovation Managers to know where to apply resources to do the most good.
No one knows the shifting markers of success for grant-funded research better than Research Development Professionals. One thing has been consistent: organizations that bring in more grants get to perform more competitive research. Cognitive City visualizations have been used to convey how the expertise of transdisciplinary teams satisfy the requirements of multi-million-dollar grant opportunities. The researchers on those teams get to find new methods to apply in their domain and keep moving science forward in their fields.
Improving a team’s ideation, productivity, and knowledge transfer can feel like an impossible challenge. It’s hard enough to work on any one of those goals, let alone all three at once. R&D Managers have used Exaptive’s Cognitive City to connect the right team members for collaboration around the right tools. This supports agile co-production and collective understanding. The team generates more ideas, can analyze and test those ideas faster, share their ideas and prototypes widely, and iterate.
