Adventures inside the Organisation and of the Mind
Tearing down organisational boundaries and expanding your mind. Getting out, experimenting with new techniques and people in creative spaces and achieving different
Unbound is a mindset intended to bring creativity, openness and innovation to work outcomes. It is also about adopting new ways of working and thinking to those you normally operate with when they are holding you back. Sometimes it’s just about taking you out of your every day work space – that might be enough. Most often though, to really work well, you have to mix up your thinking approaches and it helps to do it with a diverse group of people. So the magic ingredients are space, people and technique. It’s not for everyone nor needed all the time. It works best when it takes you out of the ordinary and does not become the ordinary. I try adopt this approach in the way I work with customers and team members and am using the resources section to capture the various approaches, mine and others. Broad areas I will try focusing on are as follows:
Running user meetups and connecting customer advocates around products and with product and customer teams.
Mixing startup and corporate teams and approaches to achieve accelerated innovation.
Hacking culture to build employee and customer brand engagement.
Below is a breakdown of various activities that represent the unbound approach. In most cases I link to blog posts that go into detail so follow the links. I will be adding to this over time so check back for updates.
