  8. 8. ● Geographic level playing field ● Online can work! And for me can be more efficient ● People who are reluctant to speak up in person feel more comfortable doing so in chat online ● blended is the future: opportunity for post workshop follow up via Zoom ● Community can adapt different forms ● an HR colleague says IT devs are loving it as they prefer to focus alone and not get dragged into physical meetings ● New routines, regular social check-ins, keeping well and looking after my mental and physical needs. Helped by A good playlist! ● ironically I've been a lot more communicative than ever before ● Connection with clients is more focused ● Commuting I now realise was exhausting. ● Time to learn to paint.... not in 4 to 8 countries a month anymore ● Never going to complain about travelling again Pros and Cons of Online Lockdown Learnings Highlights Behaviours and Skills. ● You will either become a Monk, Hunk, Lump, or Drunk. ● That eating cake makes your clothes shrink. ● no online workshops for more than 2 hours without a mental break ● The importance of having people around you ● I was not born to be a teacher! ● Heading to the fridge is my favourite commute ● Zoom fatigue is a thing - and we don't have to be on video all the time just because we can ● buy a decent microphone! don’t rely on built in pc mics. Invest in noise cancelling headphones :) ● If you don't trust your employees - the problem is that you don't trust your employees - not that they are working at home... ● very difficult to sleep and work efficiently in the same room! ● When you go out once a day, follow dog walkers to find new routes ● I think I am working later that ‘office work’, so need to find ways to ‘close’ the at-home office. ● having a physical differentiation between working/home space
  9. 9. ● We are physically prevented from meeting ● We’re getting used to it ● It might even be better ● Let’s help each other learn, adapt and succeed Innovation is no longer a contact sport. Sumer Union Theme.

  36. 36. Non-contact Innovation Brainstorm How do we Explore new ideas Explore Mix it up - make sure that creatives are diverse Hold spaces like Union, for example, where people can come together online. The spiderweb of connection - if each person invites someone relevant this is double the connections Join Linkedin groups Learn how to communicate better online - and give each other validation Linked In: connect personally (write a message) and join groups that pertain to my work and interests. Social distancing workshops Use social listening to see what the public is saying about the subject Using polls, social media, outsource to people you otherwise wouldn't; be able to reach due to geography, timing etc: lean into the change rather than trying to mimic 'old; ways Use of digital technology for creative purposes (more open to it now than pre March 2020) PR Online Serendipity AI analysis of Twitter feeds- apparently there is a hedometer looking at twitter to gauge the mood of the country shared whiteboarding Database extraction of data, trends. Social listening on social media using clouds solutions to co-work with team members Virtual events Crowdsourcing platform/programme dimensions/outside perspective Break from your normal community to increase diversity across all dimensions offer to swap into another group Direct contact through Linkedin or website Use consumer groups to prioritise ideas to become more demand led Outbound campaign
  37. 37. Non-contact Innovation Brainstorm How do we Extract the best ones? Extract send an email around with a spreadsheet and scores on For small teams, we just have a chat, research the ideas and then make a decision. My team meets online. We meet every few days to touch base and get updates Can select 50 to 100 clients to test ideas and ask for feedback...with tracking for who opens what, for how long and when. First using unpaid campaigns and then paid for potential clients. ONline concept testing 360 and Diversified R&D process best practice sharing to develop GTM options Commercial and Sustainable relevance and synergies Missing personal chemistry, validating process, facial cues. online-offline pilots tweet your ideas out and see what gets the best reaction Online Crowdsourcing programmes with load of read users Expose people to the different options available- let them play with the tools to see what is possible e.g. sticky notes, group conversations online hype from early stage: expose your process Have a hypothesis, and test it online. and document learnings remote 3D printing printing - think of the mass of face shields being made live streaming as a form of ethnography crowdsourcing vote online debate (in a box) Camera diaries online video diaries blogs Online interviews virtual office tour Camera with trigger Online crowd source platform democratic votes Judging panels Crowds are a great way to extract the best ideas, or anyway to find out what's popular
  38. 38. Non-contact Innovation Brainstorm How do we Exploit them as innovations online? Exploit Using online version of the business canvas fast iterative business model development - 30 mins at time building business models / routes to market Am seeing a lot more augmented reality going on- can be used ask people/businesses to put money down kickstarter/IndieGoGo What's;s the equivalent for B2B? online prototyping lofi, hifi, etc. Speculative Design proposals to prompt insights give participants / co-creators opportunity to have a stake in the success of the programme, so they have the motive to support implementation and uptake Connect with your existing supply chain
