THREE WAYS TO ENGAGE::
GreenHouse :: Sprints
Smarter Questions. Smarter Answers.
You’re about to start a new project.
And you want to make sure you get things right…from the start.
We can help.
Our half-day innovation sprints are designed to enhance your in-house capabilities on the front end to accelerate innovation and improve outcomes for the clients and communities you serve.
We’ll work with you and your team to define the end in view — what getting it right looks like — and articulate the central question or questions that you need to ask in order to better understand the problems that must be solved to achieve your goals.
As one client said, “a GreenHouse Innovation Sprint is the thing you do before you do the thing you do.”
Interested? Let’s talk.
We’d like to learn more about you and your present needs. And we’d like to tell you a little bit more about GreenHouse::Innovation, too, and figure out how we can help get you from “Aha!” to execution with a workshop, research and innovation partnership or innovation sprint.
GreenHouse :: Workshops
Making the invisible visible.
You want to create change…
…in your community, your organization — the world.
If, however, you’re like many of the smart, dedicated and creative folks at the organizations that we’ve helped, you might not have the time or the tools or the bandwidth to properly contextualize existing data to unlock the hidden value of your analysis and insights, and leverage them in new, powerful ways.
We’ve been there. We understand.
Using our six innovation lenses, we’ll help you::
:: Properly contextualize a challenge; or strategic vision, “the big picture” and the thinking that informed it.
:: Unlock hidden value of existing data, and bring to life original ideas and insights that can be leveraged to inform new thinking and new strategies to achieve your goals in the real world, beyond the whiteboards, foamcore, and Post-It Notes.
:: Prepare to prototype and test concepts for strategy development and execution, increasing the odds for success, and better, stronger outcomes.
Our workshops will allow you to::
:: Identify key actors in the change you’re seeking to make and who influences them
:: Reveal essential, hidden actors who can accelerate or slow change
:: Understand actors’ motivations and needs
:: Make sense of the existing narratives that will impact change
:: Sort through the various formal and informal rules that will impact change
:: Investigate expectations about the future that will impact change
:: Make sense of related challenges that will influence change
:: Identify social norms at the center of the change you’re seeking to make
:: Verify that you’re seeking to make the right change
:: Coalesce around a shared vocabulary and experience of change
And create one “Aha!” moment after another…
“Aha!” Workshops can be designed as stand-alone, on-site or off-site experiences; as part of a larger effort to turbocharge capacity building initiatives through Question Modeling™ and solution design for your teams ; to gut check business strategies before execution; or to help organizations build a culture of continuous innovation.

GreenHouse :: Partnerships
Working together to create change.
You want to invest in success.
We do, too.
Our greatest successes have come from the strategic partnerships we have developed and maintained with organizations in the public, private, social and academic sector.
GreenHouse partnerships are built upon universal principles and values, a common vision and shared goals. And, not the least, on a unifying belief that now is the time to transcend conventional modes of thinking to drive innovation in the public and private sectors.
To that end, we partner with businesses and organizations on research and innovation projects that are designed to identify social conflicts related to specific challenges involving a plurality of actors — people, in other words — and to develop new strategies and models to resolve those conflicts, and effect meaningful, measurable change.
We also serve as innovation mediators for client-partners, designing, convening and directing hard yet necessary conversations on complex issues — social, cultural, organizational — to discover new paths toward mutual understanding, respect and collaboration.
