You’ve hired top talent and invested in training, innovation tools, ping-pong tables and that shiny fablab.
WHY DOES IT STILL FEEL LIKE YOU AREN’T INNOVATING FAST ENOUGH TO KEEP UP WITH CHANGE?

HERE’S WHAT WE KNOW

INNOVATION IS FRUSTRATING YOUR PEOPLE AND HURTING YOUR BOTTOM LINE.

Hiring and firing for the “skills du jour” is costing you people and money.

The toys, methodology, inspiration, and innovation labs aren’t being integrated back to daily workflows.

The innovative behaviors you’re training for won’t work under old supporting structures or without psychological safety.

WE ARE EXPERTS AT CREATING CULTURES OF INNOVATION.

The research is clear—we cannot predict the future, skills are temporary in this transitional age, functional expertise is shifting to constant learning—and mediocre cultures are costly and losing ground. Hiring and firing competencies must be replaced by transforming your organization to the most powerful incubator possible for the development of talent.

This is what Making to Think does. We work with you to transform the culture of your company, create sustainable innovation capacity at every level of the organization—a capacity to collaborate at the speed of change that results in long term competitive advantage. We ensure creative sparks are captured, perspectives are kept fluid, psychological safety is cultivated, and developmental practices challenge and grow engaged employees. In today’s working world, uncertainty, unpredictability, and vulnerability are the new literacy, and the leading culture makes to think.

“Today was the most transformative experience of the last five years at work. At first I thought there would be a connection between art and music or art and theater maybe, but art and business?! What I left with today has already changed me, I see our work entirely differently. I have to bring this session to my team now and dive deeper.”
