At Lloyd Smith Solutions, Our methods use a systematic process where, together, we create ideas that stick. Engagement and lack of stakeholder buy-in are often cited as the two biggest blocks to innovation in organizations today. Our process engage everyone. And since the very people who are experiencing the challenges help to conduct the analysis, they are also part of the solution. When people feel they have a voice at the table, it is amazing how quickly and enthusiastically they will help to implement new ideas to ensure success.
We might use a puzzle to understand how people and teams work through change. We may use LEGO® bricks to brainstorm new ideas and to create a dynamic strategy. Paper towers can uncover how a team works together and how it innovates new ideas. We may use storytelling and story boards for leadership development, photos and pictures to clarify identity, or use music and dramatizations to help understand your customers’ experiences.
During the process you will be able to observe both internal and external dynamics, explore various scenarios, and quickly gain an awareness of a variety of possibilities. Since 2002, some of the world’s largest and most innovative companies have experienced firsthand how our Strategic Playroom methodologies can unlock the collective creative imagination.
When your team is focused on a specific business challenge, working in a strategic playroom can help you reach a better solution faster. And the results will be dramatically different from those of the standard brainstorming and problem-solving sessions. You will reach immediate, actionable solutions to even your most complex problems because people can tackle problems faster and more effectively when thinking visually and in 3D.
