Innovation Institute is a global think-tank focused on uncovering underlying principles of human cognition, emotion and behavior as they apply to maximizing individual/organizational capabilities for creative and strategic thinking, problem-solving and decision-making.

COGNITION

EMOTION

BEHAVIOR

We work together with insightful and audacious individuals, teams and organizations who dare to challenge themselves and challenge the status quo by:

MAXIMIZING INDIVIDUAL’S
CAPABILITY

To perform the most complex cognitive processes and to simultaneously deliver imaginative novelty and meaningful/ impactful value to an endeavor, grounded in human biology, psychology and sociology in order to enhance strategic and creative thinking, problem-solving and decision-making.

UTILIZING FUNDAMENTAL
PRINCIPLES THINKING

Which aligns the cognitive processes with strategic/creative thinking in the context of problem-solving and decision-making, thus removing individual/team innate limitations to creative/ strategic thinking and exerting the maximum from one’s/team’s innate cognitive capabilities.

Working together with top executives and renowned professors from world’s leading universities (Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, GATech, Bocconi, Duke, Northwestern, ETH, etc.), we have developed insights, tools and frameworks that maximize individual/ team/organizational Ingenuity, which delivers exponential returns to the efforts.

INNOVATION INSTITUTE ACADEMIC COUNCIL

HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?

 Our approach is built on the following unique elements:

UNIQUE PERSPECTIVE

Humans are born as non-creative (innately non-strategic with no delayed gratification). Conventional approach tries to foster creative and strategic thinking which is not inherent in humans. We work with individuals and teams to counter the innate limitations of the brain.

UNIQUE OUTCOMES

Building Ingenuity drives exponential returns to efforts. Ingenuity enables individuals to build organizations and strategies as a set of assumptions, in order to: a) simultaneously maximize on conflicting goals and b) enhance learning both from successes and mistakes.

UNIQUE APPROACH

We work with organizations to focus their thinking by utilizing fundamental-principles thinking approach to drill down observables and translate them into explicit and implicit assumptions (organization, market and industry level) - the underlying logic.

UNIQUE TEAM

We deliver value across disciplines/ industries. We encompass a unique global network of thinkers (world-leading academics/consultants and managers) who provide: a) Breadth of insights; b) Quality of insights and c) Relevance of insights

HOW CAN WE WORK TOGETHER?

We are looking forward to working with our partners on enhancing organizational capability to drive ingenuity in individuals and teams, further enhancing the strategic role of human and his/her ingenuity in delivering exponential returns to efforts.
