The Ultimate BrainStudio™
High levels of creativity are needed to meet the significant business and innovation challenges that your organization faces every day. These problems are often highly complex, and finding meaningful solutions requires the engagement of many people in the integration of lots of information and knowledge. Traditional conference rooms simply weren’t built for this way of working, and they can’t handle the demands. As a result, the work flow is interrupted, decisions are postponed, and the creative potential of a room full of strong minds remains unfulfilled. There’s not enough wall space to display all the information that the teams needs to work with, and lacking big white boards and digital work surfaces people are forced to improvise, and the quality of the thinking and of the work suffers. Your team can benefit significantly with a real “innovation room” – the Ultimate BrainStudio.
The BrainStudio is a powerful business tool that’s designed to support four vital business processes:
Creativity: A place to stimulate and nurture creative thought, exploration, and dialog,
Collaboration: A facility for high energy collaboration, high performance design, and breakthrough brainstorming for groups from five to fifty in one place.
Conferencing: A global technology network with the best tools to connect people and ideas around the world.
Innovation: A place and a process to manage the vast complexities of a genuinely effective innovation process.
Each of these elements – creativity, collaboration, conferencing, and innovation – is certainly critical to the future success of your enterprise, but you’ve probably noticed that none of them work particularly well in traditional conference rooms. What’s the alternative? The BrainStudio... and combined with a comprehensive and systematic innovation process, it will provide your enterprise with a critical new capacity that will reap impressive dividends, significantly accelerating the pace creative discoveries and the capacity to produce innovative results. The principles and practices of the BrainStudio have been piloted and proven over years of development and experimentation, and now they’re ready for you.
