“I’ve worked with large companies trying to do open innovation, but the Strategic Doing process is unique. This is the most clear and concise open innovation process I’ve seen.” Mark Scotland, CEO 4.0 Analytics

“Strategic Doing is the tool that had the greatest impact in really being something that we could activate.” Kim Thurlow, Ivy Tech

“Decision-making in higher education institutions is infamously slow, with multiple layers of approvals and an emphasis on the need for new resources. Strategic Doing’s focus on what we could, should and will do with the existing talents, resources and authority of the people in the room at the time breaks people free of that limited thinking and helps them move forward in real time.” Rena Cotsones, Northern Illinois University
