HOW WE WORK?

Creative thinking and problem solving are essential competences to respond to the ever-changing environment. As it is not possible to generate new ways of thinking, learning, acting and being if we use traditional methods, our services and products combine different theories and methodologies, such as action learning, design thinking, serious play, social constructivism, creative and visual thinking to mediate communication, interaction and thinking.

We create environments that facilitate dialogue and learning, with the aim of guiding and accompanying participants in the process of learning to solve real problems in collaborative and creative ways. For this, each of our services use three correlated elements to promote the development of creative thinking:

 

  1. Space: physical environment that invites collaboration, imagination, creativity, play, teamwork, and innovation.
  2. Process: concrete steps that guide the creative process. Each process has a solid scientific base that guarantees achieving the specific objective for which it was designed.
  3. Tools: recognized and proven materials and methodology to facilitate the creative process.

 

These three elements form our Mobile Laboratory of Creative Thinking and all our services are implemented within the Lab. This means that we move to our clients' facilities, once there we set up the creative space and run one of our creative processes

  • Action learning
    Action learning

    Action learning is a methodology for organizational development which has as a principle, that we learn when trying to solve real problems together with others. The methodology seeks an hollistic development of the person: intellectual, physical, emotional and spiritual. On the other hand, it has a very strong component in the analysis of our value systems when making decisions and actions.

  • Lego Serious Play
    Lego Serious Play

    Is a methodology for the transformation and development of organizations, based on the use of Lego. Uses the method of learning by playing to identify and analyze problems from a systemic thinking perspective, this favors the commitment of those involved. In addition, the use of Legos facilitates the externalization of abstract concepts, such as feelings, ideas, thoughts, into concrete objects that can be manipulated, discussed and analyzed. The methodology is based on four simple but powerful steps: ask a question, build the answer with Legos, share the meaning in construction and reflect.

  • Design Thinking
    Design Thinking

    Design Thinking is a method to generate innovative ideas that respond to the real needs of users. The method seeks to bring the way in which product designers think / work in different areas such as business, services and technology. The Design Thinking process consists of five steps: empathy (deep understanding of user needs), definition (identification of problems), ideation (generation of ideas for identified problems), prototyping (ideas are built) and testing (the ideas are tested with the user).

Our principles

The art of asking questions
It is very common to invest a lot of time giving the perfect answer to the wrong question. Our approach is to use the necessary time until you find the right question. Finding the right question demands the ability to listen, to think differently and critically, to reflect, and to have the courage to ask uncomfortable and difficult questions.
Focus on people
We focus on understanding people, which are the heart of organizations and their reason for existing, so we use different tools to identify needs, aspirations, dreams, and concerns of internal and external users of the organization.
Materials for mediation of communication
It is very common that we cannot express our thoughts in words, so materials, such as Legos, post it, paper, etc., help us to externalize abstract concepts - ideas, doubts, feelings, and thoughts- which once externalized can be discussed, understood and analyzed with other people.
Systemic thinking
Organizational challenges are complex, so they need multiple perspectives, teamwork, and an understanding of the different components of the system, their relationships and interactions to find solutions.
