Do More with Less
Driving Innovation through the Jungle of the Economic Downturn

Well, here we go again!

Fasten your seatbelts, everyone, because this could be a bumpy ride.

Do more with less The pendulum of the "Innovation Cycle" seems to be ratcheting up faster and faster as it swings back and forth between cost-cutting and long-term investment. And this is precisely why you need short, medium and long-term opportunities in your innovation pipeline at all times.

Although some companies are able to keep the bar high during economic downturns, others are forced to cut back, change plans, decrease costs, and do more with less. But even though you're forced to run your business leaner than usual, you can still keep innovation alive.

An Idea Champions Do More With Less session will help you make the most of down market periods. It will save you time and money, while freeing up resources you didn't know you had. One size does not fit all. Each Do More With Less session is custom designed and will address a to-be-determined number of the following challenges:

  • Accomplishing stretch goals with a downsized workforce
  • Cost cutting
  • Finding elegant solutions to seemingly insolvable problems
  • Streamlining business processes
  • Decreasing re-work
  • Improving morale, teamwork, and communication
  • Short-term innovation
  • Failing faster and more inexpensively
  • Jump starting a culture of innovation
  • Empowering customers, vendors and suppliers to perform tasks you currently do
The Idea Champions process:
  1. Conduct a simple, effective needs assessment
  2. Identify your company's most pressing business challenges
  3. Design and facilitate a breakthrough brainstorming session
  4. Uncover a wide range of actionable items you can execute immediately
  5. Provide participants with innovation-sparking tools and techniques
  6. OPTIONAL: Teach your people to facilitate Do More With Less sessions
Quick. Simple. Direct. Cost-effective.

There is simply no need to curtail innovation just because the number-crunching demons are biting at your heels. In fact, it is imperative that you refrain from the temptation to do exactly that. Simply re-focus your efforts on initiatives you can implement RIGHT NOW while finding hidden resources to keep innovation alive and well.

Let Idea Champions help you do whatever you need to do to work better and smarter.
