deliver business results

Labs Overview

Co-Labs combine a unique blend of design thinking, innovation, intrapreneurship and leadership development.The programs are highly experiential, based on learning-by-doing.

Co-Lab Example

    Business sponsors formulate 3-4 challenges and teams get briefed on expected outcomes of their projects.
  • Design Thinking
    Concepts are co-created for the 3-4 projects by participants
  • Leading Innovation
    Lab participants develop Business models whilst learning to lead Innovation.
  • Running Agile Projects
    Agile project execution is achieved by building team alignment and learning to lead project teams effectively.
  • Pitchout Session
    Teams pitch to their sponsors and get feedback to include in project roll-out.
  • Implementation & Mentoring
    Teams work on their project in their own time
    Project implementation is supported through team mentoring sessions

Why join the Co-Labs?

Many experienced L&D practitioners and business leaders have learned that short-term training programmes fail to deliver because they are disconnected from reality. Insufficient time is invested, and the organisation is not able to retune and reframe how they will create and deliver value.

Learning
by Doing

Learning is a personal experience, and active participation is critical for it to occur. Learning is best supported and enhanced by reflection on experiences in live environments that allows participants to discover new insights about themselves, others and the world.

New Ideas, Concepts and Innovations

Participants will develop an open mind by working in the
Co-Lab, as it provides a safe space where new behaviour can be tested and supported. They will be able to build new habits that are transferable to other projects and parts of the organisation.

This accelerated learning path drives three distinct outcomes simultaneously: powerful development of key people, creating new business value and changing organisational culture.
