PRACTICE

The Lab creates opportunities, learning, and social impact through a comprehensive and collaborative methodology. We blend human-centered design and systems-thinking to foster intuitive and analytical insights in order to inspire ideas and hypotheses that are modelled and tested.

Our process is about interactive innovation
 

We listen by
identifying context,
synthesizing data,
and qualifying
opportunities.

 

We generate and
test ideas against
the lenses of
desirability,
viability, and
feasibility.

 

We provide direction
to scale solutions into
system-level changes.
In the spirit of learning
and iteration, we move
between these three
modes freely and
frequently.

Place

The Social Impact Lab space sets the stage for the overall experience and needs to support the innovation process, while also influencing culture through the use of technology, tools, and physical environment. The right kind of space encourages curiosity, experimentation, and collaboration. The lab is designed to support creativity and innovation.
