High-energy ideation sessions strategically-designed to produce pipelines of actionable new product, service and business concepts.
Unleash the creativity of your team and unlock the potential of your organization. Phillips & Co.’s ideation sessions are led by professional facilitators with years of experience working with some of the world’s top brands.
And, Phillips & Co. has reimagined the ideation process itself, blending tools of business strategy with breakthrough thinking models to imagine innovative new offerings, each backed by strategic insight.
In Phillips & Co. ideation sessions, we leverage proprietary tools including our Expert Ideator Network (hundreds of incredible, pre-vetted, thinkers we pull into our sessions) and our Innovation Methods Database (the result of our ten-year research project to decode the DNA of winning new ideas.)
Strategic Planning Sessions
Reimagine your organization’s strategic plans – and then define the tactics that will set them in motion.
We design and lead strategic planning sessions for leadership teams who want to push their thinking beyond the status quo.
Together, we’ll look at your challenge in new ways, infuse fresh thinking from other industries, craft breakthrough innovation strategies and define a clear action plan to propel the strategy forward.
Your session will be a custom-designed, immersive experience that challenges your team to break new ground and create powerful new paths to growth and change for your organization.
“Your team did an incredible job developing a portfolio of innovative new product concepts within the limitations of our highly-regulated industry.”
