Tools

The innovation lab tools are designed to help teams navigate & design new or improve existing services offered by the organization, whether the service is dedicated to staff or to users/clients. The tools come within a toolkit along with a guidebook that explains how to, tool description, requirements, duration etc.

Space

The innovation lab space focuses on envisioning the interior design, looking at how it can function and enable all categories of stakeholders to collaborate and work in different scenarios (meetings, workshops, presentations, project work, prototyping & testing, exhibition etc), what type of furniture and other artefacts will facilitate each of these senarios.

Branding

The design of the artifacts and space should reflect the core message of lab’s brand and purpose. Everything people see and engage with in the design of the lab, from the furniture, visual cues and tools should be tailor-made to invoke certain functions from users, to encourage doing, not talking, enable creativity and energize.

Platform

The lab system acts as a knowledge hub where users can access the tools; collaboration space for remote work; lab booking system; challenge bank; idea bank where people can add ideas or nominate ones to be taken into implementation; and finally the innovation pipeline where users can see all active projects, status and details. The system elements may differ from one lab to another.

Strategy

This lab component entails the main elements of the Service Innovation Lab Operational Framework. The extensive framework provides a detailed guideline, tools and processes that will help the Innovation team during its journey to design innovative and impactful services for the organization’s staff and users.

Operating Model

The innovation lab operating model and process is a practical and powerful tool that will help in guiding the core Innovation team achieve the promised mandate of the lab, and evolve the organization to becoming a leading service provider.
