Blue Sky

 Uncover brilliant ideas from within your business

Engage your staff and mine the gold on your own land

 

How many brilliant ideas are laying dormant within your staff?

Whether your goal is success, survival or innovation, you could be one good idea away. Countless companies have been made or broken by listening, or not listing, to their staff.

Some of the best business ideas are already being discussed between your staff

  • But how do you uncover these ideas, and inspire staff into action?

The teams that work for you are often the best placed to understand what challenges really need solving.

They’re the closest to the solutions you implement, and the challenges your business faces. As business owners and leaders, a BlueSky workshop with the Results Alliance gives you the opportunity to discover the brilliant ideas that are right under your nose. 

Why do I need a forum for this?

Wouldn’t my staff have already told me about their ideas?

What about a suggestion box?

How can you get my staff to participate?

Providing a space for staff to teams to collaborate on ideas

Through our half day and full day workshops, our BlueSky platform provides an inspiring place for your team to share and discuss ideas in a structured and meaningful format. We aren’t just shooting random shots at the moon.

It’s worth asking that if an idea could radicalise and change your business, would it fit on a sticky note in a box? Would staff go out of their way to write one out? Or would it need to be encouraged out of your employees, perhaps in a team environment.

Example: New Product at 3M - Billions in Revenue

The idea to develop a semi-sticky adhesive came from 3M scientist Spencer Silver. However, Silver was unsure of what to do with the not-so-sticky glue.

Art Fry, a colleague of Silver’s, came up with the idea of the Post-It Note. Fry realized that this special adhesive would solve the problem of his bookmarks falling out of his hymn book.

Post-It Notes are now the key product of a 3M division that posted revenues of $3.47 billion in 2009 according to New York Times.

Let’s ask ourselves for a second, what if Art and Spencer weren’t direct colleagues?

Would the idea have stopped, would a competitor have beat them to it?
