We see ourselves as curators. That’s why we hang out in the innovation space to select the best tools and methodology to support your needs and objectives.
Sustainable Innovation Toolkit
Many companies want to adopt entrepreneurial methodologies and techniques. To simplify your learning journey, we have consolidated the best tools and proven techniques to create an easily accessible toolkit — the Sustainable Innovation Toolkit — that embraces societal priorities as well as the fundamentals of innovation.
The objective of this toolkit is to help future changemakers build the most innovative and sustainable solution to address social and environmental problems.
In the current era of digital advancements, more and more events happen online. It is, therefore, crucial to distinct the differences and introduce new practices.
The objective of this toolkit is to help corporate entrepreneurs to create, facilitate and organise their own remote workshops.
Many companies implementing innovation programmes request support from external facilitators, but there is also a significant amount of effort required in terms of programme management, as well as the preparation and coordination of events and the follow-up afterwards. To clarify the roles and responsibilities, we have designed playing cards that you can use for free.
Golden Circle and Lean Startup
We created our own methodology, inspired by the Design Thinking, Lean Startup and Golden Circle approaches. Our unique simplified approach: 4D Methodology (Discover, Design, Define and Develop) is based on a 4-step process where each outcome highlights one of the criteria.
We developed the Sustainable Innovation Toolkit, which is like the base of a pizza, but as a team, we evaluate contexts and always make the toppings evolve. We’re constantly adapting how we do things: because any project doesn’t look the same, and we believe everyone must use appropriate canvases and innovative tools. That’s why our Toolkit is and always will be free.
Inspired by the Design Thinking, Lean Startup and Golden Circle approaches, this unique simplified methodology is based on a 4-step process where each outcome highlights one of the criteria.
✅ The Discovery phase will end with a clear understanding of the sustainable challenge and potential impact.
✅ The output of the Design phase will be your value proposition.
✅ After the Definition phase, you need to end up with an economic model.
✅ The Development phase should generate a first prototype of your solution.
Impact Model Canvas
By the end of each phase, by using the different tools, you will be able to complete a final “canvas” and overview of the idea, project or innovation. This canvas has been created to support the efficient development of a solution that will potentially generate a business impact and create societal value.
Innovation Program Canvas
At Impact Valley, we don’t want to reinvent the wheel and so we continue to use the most effective canvases. However, we have also created two new canvases that takes societal challenges into account.
This canvas has been created to help our clients in the design of their own innovation program, as well as the sales pitch that they will present to decision-makers or external stakeholders.
