It seems that we often fall in love with our own products and ideas. For the benefit of the business, we should learn to understand the needs and challenges of the customers and develop business and technology to support their resolution.summarises Krista Keränen, CEO of Vision Factory.
Design thinking and co-creation enable the construction of a new, more competitive business. When stakeholders are involved in business development, a lot of tacit knowledge that is challenging to collect in other ways is brought to light. This tacit knowledge helps make faster and better decisions and brings a new kind of agility to the organisation’s operations.
Involving staff, customers, stakeholders, members, students, etc. in business development does not diminish or question the need for expertise and deep professional competence – quite the opposite! We need competent experts, leaders, and developers to refine ideas into solutions.
Our mission is to make
genuine collaboration the new normal
in organisations and businesses.

you are already in the right place.
