Is your organization at risk?

  • Subpar Experimentation: You do not have an R&D Department or make time for optimal foresight analysis and experimentation to drive groundbreaking research and discovery for your organization.

  • Subpar Innovation: Your innovative ideas are not "sticky". Your ideal innovative vision gets "chiseled away" and does not make it into the your final project, service, or product.

  • Subpar Vision/Mission: You do not have a clear and compelling vision/mission about the ultimate defining impact of your project, service, or product. Your business' design values are not fully integrated.

  • Subpar Tool Advancement: You do not pioneer or invent new and improved design tools or techniques to inform and advance architectural design processes.

  • Not Leveraging Full Creativity: Your organization does not properly leverage creativity when balanced against efficiency.

  • Subpar Brand Identity: Your organization is only stereotyped for its particular "hardened" brand positioning instead of being known for its savvy and evolving design innovation.

  • Subpar Strategic Process: Your organization has trouble advancing beyond its past projects, services, or products. You lack full vision and strategy into how your business can breakthrough to its next level of innovation and mastery.

  • No Foresight Scanning: You do not consistently track or scan emerging trends and innovations that could disrupt the architectural design industry. You miss out on turning potential industry disruptions into leader-positioning opportunities.

An organization that falls behind on innovation and R&D will limit their global impact and they could become "vulnerable to challenges from established competitors and at risk from disruption by startups. Therefore developing and investing in R&D — particularly leaders — should be a focus and competitive advantage for CEOs and Founders".
