How do you harness the creativity of 250 global team members to shape the future of an organization?
- What does it take to alter mindsets, trigger innovative and collaborative thinking, and get real outcomes in a matter of hours?
- What if you could supercharge your team’s relationship with your organization while also supercharging your team’s relationship with each other?
This is how we did it:
- We designed and facilitated a company-wide future visioning co-creation session, where 225 participants from around the world, different roles, and seniority worked together to solve challenges and help shape the vision of the company’s future under new leadership.
- 23 teams
- 6 innovation challenges
- There was a combination of impactful insights, new methodologies, and guided ideation to give shape to the big ideas that were then showcased in a TapJoy of the Future Fair.
What was accomplished at the offsite and beyond:
- Everyone came to the table with not only opportunity areas but also new ideas. They wanted to be a part of the solution!
- The sessions helped shift the narrative around the organization’s future and emphasize everyone’s role in shaping it.
How we helped:
- Leadership changes can create times of uncertainty and loss of productivity inside organizations. Through the company-wide offsite, Analogous helped Tapjoy usher in a new CEO with company-wide confidence, internal alignment, and collective action toward making better products at all levels of the organization.
- Upbeat, genuine enthusiasm grew throughout the session, culminating in an enormous sense of accomplishment – Everyone was blown away by the level of creativity and business savviness on display.
- Massive number of ideas – The company generated over 500 ideas across six business area challenges in just a few hours.
- Wove a fabric of better understanding and appreciation for other roles and departments. The offsite created a feeling of connectedness with a shared vision that extended beyond the event and made it easier for distributed teams to work better together.
- Ideas generated during the off-site underwent a process of grouping, prioritization, assigning owners, and creating action plans. This ensured that the outputs of the Offsite ActionLab became the seeds of future development that everyone could use to hit the ground running as soon as they returned to their day jobs.
