Innovation Collaborator

Are you an experienced professional with specialized skills? Do you enjoy collaborating with individuals who have skills and perspectives that are different than your own? If so, we’d like to hear from you.

We assemble innovation teams made up of client-partner members and individually selected collaborators from industry. There are 4 primary roles we look to fill on nearly every innovation team, they are:

  • Icon

    The professional risk taker who understands how to calculate the odds. A bold leader who uses well-honed creative problem-solving skills to create value.

  • Icon

    The insight hunter with the ability to translate human needs into elegant products and services. Naturally empathetic and a champion of solutions that address user needs in original ways.

  • Icon

    The seeker of quantifiable truths who understands and navigates within the constraints of technology. A natural builder who understands what’s required to move from idea to reality.

  • Icon

    The practical leader with a mind for numbers and a steadfast focus on the bottom-line. A champion of solutions that are rooted in financial viability.

What Does an Innovation Collaborator Do?

You will bring an external perspective and complementary skills to an innovation team during a collaborative innovation cycle. In practical terms, this means spending 1-2 hours per week thinking about and discussing an innovation challenge as member of the team for a period of approximately 70 days.
