Every engagement is as unique as our customers needs and context. Be it vision & strategy, insights & ideas, rapid prototyping or scaling we use a variety a tools and methodologies tu develop and co-create the best approach to each challenge. Customers and people are always central to our work. The following is a sample of the type of services we excel at.
Our custom designed innovation programs and disruption sprints bring your team up to speed on the latest technology and consumer trends impacting your (and adjacent) industries. Applying exponential technology, new organisational techniques and a broad startup playbook/toolbox we help the leadership team develop new core and edge initiatives (product/services/processes/business models) supporting the organisation’s ‘from-to’ shifts.
WORKSHOPS & BOOTCAMPS
Nouvel's workshops and bootcamps are shorter (1/2 to 3 day) programs in which we address specific innovation challenges such as: aligning stakeholders, inspiring a culture of innovation, kickstarting open innovation, building strategic technology and consumer trend foresight capability, running a design sprint or stress-testing an innovation's value proposition & business model canvas.
LEARNING EXPEDITIONS (SAFARIS)
Never has the pace of change been so fast. Safaris are urban learning expeditions that help teams gain perspective on what is happening. They promote the free flow of ideas, generate insights and enable teams to kickstart collaboration on new business opportunities. Our curated itineraries lead teams across central and off-beat locations meeting thought leaders whilst exploring a unique blend of locations (incl. new retail concepts, culturally relevant urban developments, highly differentiated service providers). Safaris are a great way to build teams and kickoff Innovation Programs/Workshops & Bootcamps. They and can be organised in any European or World capital.
We love producing events, the truly inspiring and stimulating ones. The ones you remember for their focus, attention to detail and impact. Because in the digital era nothing beats immersive, face to face exchange. Be it your company’s yearly offsite, program kick off or c-suite retreat - our aim is to help transform. We live and breathe Barcelona but the world’s our oyster.
