Blue sky thinking straight out of the box

Asking people to think "outside the box" is more than a cliche - it can be difficult, upsetting and downright awkward. IdeaKeg structures and improves your teams' thinking through its unique "scaffolding". The result: bolder questions, better ideas....quickly.

IdeaKeg is a workshop in a box. It gets you thinking differently, straight out of the gate, and quickly to your next big idea. 

The objects represent emerging trends that provoke stimulus for your problem-framing or ideation sessions. Mashing-up these trends with your business challenge is at the heart of how this process works - the scaffolding method has been proven to be very effective getting to deeper insights, which always lead to better questions or better ideas.
