Every Company Has a Life Cycle. 
AI will either be your company’s “death knell”, or rocketship. You get to choose!

You can’t solve a problem if you don’t know the questions to ask.

Take a moment to seriously consider this real life business scenario: 

Most businesses do not actually know what “AI” is, or what questions to ask, and therefore cannot be prepared for how it will transform their company…for better, or worse.

Many companies are asking:

  • What is AI and how can it advance or reduce our competitive advantage

  • How do we integrate AI effectively, ethically and responsibly?

  • What does “effectively”, “ethically” and “responsibly” even mean?

  • Which staff, contractors, departments will be impacted by AI?

  • What jobs, roles and personnel will AI replace in our company?

  • How do we move employees laterally into new roles and positions?

  • What new roles will AI create that we need to prepare for?

  • How do we roll out and integrate AI in a way that is ethical and responsible?

  • What are the risks associated with integrating AI into our business?

  • What are the risks of improperly implementing AI into our business?

  • How do we mitigate risk when integrating AI and AI tools into our business operations?

  • How will our company benefit from implementing AI (profit, marketshare, competitive advantage)?

  • And much, much more.

Whether you’re a Fortune company, a small business or something in between, our experienced DesignLab team will ensure you are prepared for how AI will transform your company. 

DesignLab delivers a powerful, convenient and effective framework to ensure your company will fully benefit from the power of AI.

What exceeded my expectations was the fun, collateral learning, and the personal exhilaration I felt from our DesignShop.”

Activate AI's Power in and For Your Company!

Not since the industrial revolution and the advent of automation have businesses and society been faced with such exponential change, for which few companies are prepared. This will define business for the next century, at least.”

Each company must customize their integration of AI for it to truly be effective, delivering the results you seek.

 

DesignLab is the most effective design-thinking experience to 

  • gather market-relevant AI intel
  • identify complex problems that will effect your business
  • reveal existing strategic AI blindspots
  • create solutions and strategies to close the AI blindspot gap
  • take action to deploy your solutions and strategies

DesignLab leverages the DesignShop® methodology. Trusted for more than 40-years, DesignShop® is the preeminent methodology, and most powerful immersive process for facilitating actionable transformative change, while mitigating risk. Used by companies, governments, NGO’s, and nonprofits, the process has the proven ability to activate new vision and actionable created solutions, solving complex problems at any scale. 

 

Innovative: Convene your company’s key decision-makers responsible for AI integration into the most creative and collaborative design process they will ever experience.

Competitive: Quickly define and learn what other companies are thinking about AI (both within and outside of your industry), and how they are utilizing AI and its numerous tools, to respond to the kinds of changes and challenges relevant to our new emerging business world.

Fast: Get more work done once a month in 4-hours than in an entire month of traditional strategic planning! Dramatically reduce the time it takes to explore and create strategic alternatives and new models to design and implement AI in your company.

We’ve Designed This Future Ready Program to Optimize Your Experience and Results

As a member of DesignLab you will clearly understand the AI landscape. This will empower you to ask the most relevant questions and create actionable solutions to ethically, effectively and responsibly integrate and implement your DesignLab created AI solutions into your company. 

Within this single year your company will go from uncertainty about how, when, and where to implement AI within your company, to experiencing your company’s total AI transformation, catapulting it into a FutureReady state to not only remain competitive, but to be a leader within your industry.  

Benefits of DesignLab:

  • Improved Profitability and Success
  • Solutions to Any Type of Problem, at Any Scale
  • Competitive Advantage in Your Industry
  • Exponential Progress in Mere Hours, Versus Days
  • Convenience
  • Peer-to-Peer Mastermind & Connection
  • Break-thru, Measurable, Actionable Results

For 4-hours, once a month you will connect and engage in your virtual DesignLab pod. There are 12 organizations and 24 participants (2 per company) within each DesignLab pod.

AI Solutions Seat

Each month, one company is pre-selected to be in the “Solutions Seat”. This means your company’s AI challenges are the focus of DesignLab for that month. Each month we alternate who is in the Solutions Seat, ensuring all 12 organizations per DesignLab Pod and all 24 participants have the ability to solve and act on their chosen AI challenge.  

Two weeks in advance of each monthly DesignLab, our facilitators will meet virtually with that month’s Solutions Seat executive / management team for a 2-hour exploratory briefing to determine the appropriate DesignShop® Models, Patterns of Tools required to solve your chosen AI challenge during that month’s DesignLab. 

During the monthly DesignLab, all peers will collaborate and focus on the Solutions Seat company’s chosen AI challenge. With the appropriate DesignShop® models and methods being pre-selected as a result of the exploratory briefing, the result of each DesignLab delivers precise, actionable solutions to the chosen AI challenge presented, which when acted on will provide the company with the desired breakthrough and action plan necessary for them to integrate AI within their company. 

Multiple AI Solutions and Action Plans for Every Company

In addition, each month, non-Solutions Seat participants will learn from other companies chosen challenges, and glean critical insights and awareness to other AI challenges within their respective organizations that they may have been blind to and unaware of, allowing them to deploy the same solutions created during that respective lab within their company after the DesignLab.
