After years of tackling data transparency initiatives for 30+ state governments, our creative technologist led a team of mobile designers and developers to create a real-time transit app for commuters in Salt Lake City, Utah. Then he built the open platform that has allowed every other major city to create their own real-time transit apps, including our beloved NYC.
RE : FRESHING INNOVATION @COCA-COLA
When the world's favorite refreshment company decided to innovate their approach to innovation, we rolled up our sleeves and dove in, working side-by-side with in-house teams to envision, develop, test and improve new processes around how the front-end of innovation gets done at The Coca-Cola Company. The result is an operational model that looks and acts much more like that of an agile start-up than a traditional big blue chip. Smarter, faster, open, agile: let's hear it for a system that drives better ideas that lead to bigger wins.
We've developed a mobile app that allows us to measure and track how we experience sound and noise, and the implications for our overall experience and well-being within particular environments. Utilizing this app, project D3C1B3L's research findings will help us better understand how companies, particularly airlines, retail, medical and educational environments can innovate to provide better, healthier experiences for all.
THE RISING MILLENNIAL EXECUTIVE
There's a white space when it comes to the Millennial Executive. This rising generation of leaders is ambitious, focused yet flexible, integrated and open. They chase the "what if" and build businesses that disrupt the status quo. This is the "make it happen" generation of leaders and they need a new kind of leadership support system. Enter Q, we helped Caroline Ghosn, founder & CEO of Levo, member of Global Shapers, and one of FastCompany's 100 Most Creative People in Business, clarify, prioritize and accelerate both her company vision and personal leadership style. Watch out, world.
GOVERNMENT TRANSPARENCY : BILL WATCH
We believe in the future of government transparency. The Bill Watch app was developed as part of Utah's government transparency initiative, designed to allow citizens to track bills through their state congress. Users receive status updates whenever a bill in the Utah Legislature is updated, read, voted on or passed from committee. Search for bills by topic, legislator's name or bill number and receive bill updates by clicking the subscribe button.
THE FUTURE OF NEWS
The future of news, its a hot topic these days. When one of the oldest news organizations asked us "what is social media's role in a news organization?" we flipped the question: "what is a news organization in today's always-on, socially connected mobile world?" We tackled this critical strategic question by envisioning new business models, growth strategies, open organizational design, tech stack and operational model as captured in an actionable roadmap designed to not only meet today's challenges, but to anticipate and lead tomorrow's news media disruption.
