Now, more than ever, organizations are increasingly being bombarded by new challenges, emerging technologies, and increased complexity.
Clients say they need to find high-quality solutions faster than ever before.
What about your organization?
Create a culture of innovation where everyone identifies, reframes, and solves your most important problems.
We help mild-mannered business professionals develop x-ray vision so that they can see through the most difficult challenges to reveal hidden solutions.
How? The Problem-Solving Institute equips professionals with simple yet scalable processes, tools, and structures that help turn all employees into innovators and problem-solvers.
Creating a culture of innovation is not a one-time event involving only a few people. It is a process and system that involves everyone in your organization.
We realize that every organization is different. Therefore, we tailor our solutions to meet your specific needs.
Typically, we deliver results combining four primary offerings...
When you need a boost of inspiration and a shot of education, our workshops and keynotes will give your organization new tools and perspectives.
These can be delivered to leadership groups or a larger audience.
These can be short presentations for larger audiences or longer sessions for a more select group.
These can be delivered in-person or virtually.
Sometimes you get stuck and want someone else to help you find solutions to your problems.
Our hot seat sessions get the job done.
Not only do you get solutions to your challenges, but you also learn the approach by watching the process demonstrated real-time on real-world problems.
To provide the greatest level of support to individuals and teams, one-on-one or group mentoring is the key for creating deep capabilities.
We focus on accountability and results through regular check-in sessions.
We also offer unlimited access to Stephen Shapiro through asynchronous voice and text. Ask any question 24/7.
To build capabilities of a wider audience, we provide a variety of educational materials and tools to help bring the concepts to everyone in your organization.
We have self-paced video-based educational programs.
We have cohort-based learning options which can include time with Stephen.
All of the programs are supported by tools to help scale the concepts company-wide.
Stephen Shapiro drives innovation by showing leaders and their teams how to approach, tackle, and solve their more difficult business challenges.
Halfway through his 15-year tenure at Accenture, while co-leading the company’s business process reengineering practice (focused on business efficiency), Stephen realized his work was responsible for people losing their jobs.
Wanting to create jobs rather than eliminating them, Stephen founded Accenture’s 20,000-person process and innovation practice which focused on growth.
In 2001, after publishing his first book, 24/7 Innovation, Stephen left Accenture to become a full-time innovation speaker and advisor to clients around the world. He is the author of six books, including his latest, Invisible Solutions.
Today, Stephen continues to focus on transforming the way businesses like 3M, P&G, Marriott, Nike, NASA, and Microsoft improve their innovation practices.
