What if everyone in your organization had a simple yet systematic way to deal with any problem or opportunity?

Solve the Right Problems, the Right Way, in Less Time, with Less Risk

Large corporations, small business owners, and entrepreneurs are increasingly being bombarded by new challenges, emerging technologies, and increased complexity.

How can you increase the pace of change within your organization to avoid disruption and remain relevant?

Create a culture of innovation where everyone identifies, reframes, and solves your most important problems.

Stephen Shapiro Speaking at the art of small business conference
Stephen’s innovation programs are designed to help any organization significantly increase performance by uncovering hidden opportunities. His FAST Innovation model drives tenfold improvements in innovation ROI over traditional methods:

  • Focus – Innovate where you differentiate: Stephen will help you clarify your differentiator, and enable you use it as a tool to prioritize investments.
  • Ask – Don’t think outside the box; find a better box: Everyone will be equipped to reveal hidden solutions to difficult problems by asking better questions.
  • Shift – Expertise is the enemy of innovation: Your teams will find breakthrough solutions faster through effective collaboration and by looking beyond their areas of expertise.
  • Test – Don’t fail; experiment: Don’t glorify failure. Instead, embrace effective experimentation as a means of reducing risk.

This process is detailed in Stephen’s upcoming book, Invisible Solutions: 25 Lenses that Reframe and Help Solve Difficult Business Problems.

Stephen doesn’t just talk innovation, he lives it.
He led a 20,000-person innovation practice at Accenture,
and he can make it a reality for your organization.

Stephen’s passion for innovation is infectious. His mandate to focus innovation relentlessly on well-articulated problems has caused an internal shift in mindset and approach for our innovators. Stephen delivers both in a way that is truly inspirational and actionable.
