For All Employees:

Taking stock of a company’s innovation readiness and six Culture of Innovation pillars is an essential step of any significant innovation effort. By surveying the organization at all levels, we gain a clear understanding of the cultural drivers currently in place, and the innovation capacity by geography, level and department. With this information in hand, we are able to generate a company’s unique cultural profile and identify a specific set of interventions designed to reshape the company so as to align with the leadership’s vision of the future.

Futurist Lab



Maddock Douglas brings together a unique group of Futurists to describe what they see as possible futures encompassing leading-edge technologies and emerging consumer trends.

Then your team collaborates with Maddock Douglas and the Futurists to develop a dashboard to track whether those futures are becoming more or less probable.

Your team will be an integral part of designing the way in which your company tracks possible futures and identifies bets to make around supporting technologies and initiatives of different business groups in your category.
