Design the innovation engine



Design the Innovation Engine

Two types of 21st century organizations will emerge: 1. Those who simply hold on to their current innovation for 3-5 years before another crisis hits 2. Those who know how to put themselves out of business every day.

The Skylance mission helps with the second path: Building the innovation engine for effective changemaking. I help leaders find their north star and make continual innovation a reality. I use a repertoire of next practices that blends the best of strategic problem solving, creativity, and neuroscience to help clients move forward.

Skylance serves both multi-disciplinary businesses and organizations — including nonprofit, government, military, and defense — who want to make their situations right. Regardless of your size or geographic location, feel free to get in touch.

Areas of Next Practices

Here are some of the pillars driving the Skylance practice of facilitation and strategic thinking.

disciplined Innovation

Continual innovation is a deliberate process that takes skill, awareness, and training, not magic.

Organizational design

Today's organizations know they need innovation engines, not just more product/service creation.

Front end of innovation (FEI)

It's no secret that innovators seek problems and opportunities before the ideas.

applied creativity research

Creativity is not magic, but an innate ability. Surfacing real empirical research on teamwork and cognitive diversity is imperative for client awareness. 


The foundation of any creative culture is how well they can solve their own problems on their own terms. 

visual Thinking

Creating common visuals for common ground is essential for making sense of complex situations.


If leaders ask for innovation but do not understand the implications for mindset, behaviors, and culture, you will find that creating the innovative enterprise will remain a pipedream.
