The DNA of the Innovation Lab

The Innovation Lab has been developing a method for the specific challenge of creating innovation in the public sector, delivering systemic change and improving lives/services.

We facilitate innovation by using our i-dec method.

i-dec - innovation through design, experimentation and creativity

Our i-dec methodology is built on design principles. Namely, putting users first, developing prototypes, testing iteratively and scaling up solutions which work.

We have combined these principles with other methodologies which unveil entry points and identify the types of solutions which may be successful (leverage points).

“The Innovation Lab provided the time to explore one big issue in a protected space without prejudice to pre-determined outcomes. “
