What is innovation?
The elements that make Idea Connection Systems® unique
Together, Human Dynamics and Innovation make what Idea Connection Systems® does possible and the integration of these concepts within your corporate philosophy, services, and relationships is Idea Connection Systems® competitive differentiator. Over time, the word innovation seems to have become ubiquitous. As a result, innovation has come to mean different things to different people. One area of confusion is the belief that innovation and creativity are synonymous. At Idea Connection Systems®, we see these two activities as complementary, but very distinct. The following are the definitions we use for creativity and innovation:
Idea Connection Systems® nurtures and supports the process of innovation with a broad spectrum of customized services. Each is designed to release the full potential of your people, products, and services.
Our Brand Promise
Through expertise, methodologies, and instruments, Idea Connection Systems® ensures that organizational leaders will attain insight, guidance, and understanding of the sophisticated inter-human dynamics within their organizations. This new comprehension promotes team restructuring, workflow optimization, and the implementation of new, innovative systems that make the systemic change needed for organizations to grow, expand, and profit possible.
Idea Connection Systems® is driven by a set of underlying values that shape how we work with each other and with our partners.
- Passion: energy, impact, excitement, adventure
Passion is what drives creation. It’s the root of motivation to create, grow, learn, and achieve. Idea Connection Systems® values the complex personalities, motivators, and goals of our team and embraces the passion they bring to resolving the disruptors that prevent our clients from achieving innovative success.
- Competency: quality, excellence, continuous learning, synthesis
Knowledge and thorough understanding of one’s craft is what sets a business apart from competitors. It’s what makes Idea Connection Systems® uniquely qualified to approach and resolve the challenging subject of human personality and behavior. Competency is a core value that interconnects with all others, ensuring the products we produce and the services we provide are comprehensive and evolutionary.
- Trust: intimacy, integrity, honesty, respect
Trust is as valuable internally within an organization as it is externally with partners and clients. Without mutual respect, honesty, and personability, barriers within an organization will prevent individuals from collaborating, which i- turn disrupts the innovative potential of the organization as a whole. Trust is central to the long-term sustainability and performance of Idea Connection Systems®.
- Service: self-responsibility, mutual responsibility cooperation, discipline
Guidance, participation, and diligence all contribute to the services Idea Connection Systems® provides. Just as we value the dedication and attention we provide externally, it’s this sense of responsibility that determines the internal success of individuals within our organization.
- Balance: spiritual path with practical feet, family work, community service, self
Often neglected under the weight of the daily grind to produce and provide, Idea Connection Systems® values the systemic characteristics, interests, and goals our employees seek in their personal lives. We ensure the balance of work and personal lifestyle so that our organization can continue to grow and thrive in the most productive and innovative ways possible.
Idea Connection Systems® delivers unique services powered by methodologies and frameworks that make an immense difference in the innovative potential of the individuals that comprise an organization. The following brand attributes are core elements that align with all services Idea Connection Systems® provides and are the focus of how external audiences should experience Idea Connection Systems®.
- Discovery: Focus, Exploration, Investigation, Insight
Idea Connection Systems® uses tools, methodologies, and frameworks to help organizations discover and measure the intricacies of human dynamics within their organization. This is fundamental to the success and competitive differentiation of Idea Connection Systems® and is the foundation for the services that it provides. Without discovery, there can be no insight to reflect and act upon.
- Understanding: Data comprehension, understanding the implications of information
Discovery and data is useless without clear reflection, comprehension, and understanding of that data. Idea Connection Systems® focuses on ensuring that clients understand the information our frameworks capture in a manner in which they can act upon and implement within their organization.
- Dynamics: Personality, the key to innovative change, leveraging, restructuring
Dynamics are the key to innovative change and strategy within an organization. Every organization has stakeholders and all stakeholders come with their own personalities, dynamics, attitudes, and behaviors. It is only by understanding the dynamics within your organization and leveraging them through the restructuring of individuals that organizations can achieve continued innovative success.
- Change: Implementation of new systems, reorganization, inter-personal culture
Idea Connection Systems® focuses on providing support, consultation, and guidance for systemic change within organizations by implementing new workflows and employee restructuring. These new systems are successful when they create new cultural paradigms that challenge the expected and sedentary operation of an organization.
- Profit: Necessary for the survival of the organization, needed to grow.
The expected measure of organizational success is how profitable an organization is. Profit too quickly within an inter-cultural or organizational systems in place and the organization will fail. On the other end of the spectrum, organizations whose profit is at risk and refuse to invest in and implement systemic change will stand in their own way of innovative success. Idea Connection Systems® works to help clients on both sides of the spectrum discover, understand, and implement necessary changes to ensure their continued profitability.
We believe that Idea Connection Systems® must behave as partners in our client’s business to help them achieve the greatest level of success. This requires that we have a personal relationship with our clients based on mutual trust and respect and have invested ownership in the program. Many of our client relationships turn into bonds of long-term friendship.
