Ideas First, Innovation Second

With a nearly constant stream of updates, optimization strategies and new technologies coming to market on a daily basis in the grand pursuit of disruption, the result can be somewhat uninspiring – stemming from lackluster and underdeveloped ideas. If the goal is innovation, then we could be waiting around for awhile. True innovation is lighting in a bottle and it won’t always strike when the time and conditions are right. To increase the possibility of disruption and innovation, ideas must flow freely and swiftly to even stand a chance of becoming a reality. It’s one thing to have a wealth of good ideas, it’s quite another to make them become a reality and on the road to becoming something useful, even life changing. A few aspects can aid in ensuring great ideas become disruptors. Speed It’s true, timing is everything. Time to market with a good idea is possibly the most…

Improving Your Project Management Style

We all know that project management isn’t as simple as it may seem. It takes a certain type of individual to excel at the level most clients and internal stakeholders expect. Working efficiently can make or break a project, and for even the most organized of people, the right tools and skills are needed to effectively manage the milestones and deliverables required. Kick-Off Strong To determine the management needs of a project, many factors come into play. A kick off meeting should be held to agree what is the most appropriate route – taking into consideration the size of team, timeline and overall scope of the project. For example, a single ad with a static image and copy using a designer and copywriter has much different PM requirements than that of a website development project. Regardless of size and scope, all kick-off meetings should result in the distribution of a…

Creating (and Maintaining) Strong Client Relations

A delicate subject constantly on the minds of directors and account reps alike: the client relationship. Building and maintaining a professional yet approachable communication language that will endure can be a daunting task, especially when working on high stakes projects that reflect a clients brand, and ultimately, their bottom line. The success of an agency, design firm or even freelancer depends heavily on strong client relations. Many businesses will gain new clients solely through word of mouth or reviews primarily gathered through social platforms. Some see client relations as a service in itself, setting the tone of the agency’s core values. There are many moving parts to the lifecycle of a creative project. Moving through the process keeping in mind these few steps will solidify the relationship as a trusted partner as opposed to just another vendor, greatly improving the project’s outcome. ‘Date’ Your Prospective Client Getting to know your client,…

The Pursuit of Innovation: Breakthrough vs. Incremental

Every aspect of a business, brand or organization can be optimized through innovation – customer relationships, process, human resources – all in pursuit of a meaningful experience. What’s more is that this application opens up the culture of innovation to all, not solely the ‘creatives’. With an incredibly competitive market and a demanding customer base, creative agencies require an innovation culture to stay relevant. Many employ one of two types of innovation, even without knowing it. More often, unaware of it’s process, a company innovates through an incremental process. Incremental innovation is considerably the more conservative method and exists on small, gradual improvements to a product or service. This may not even be seen as innovation during implementation, but in retrospecting a product’s synthesis over time, one can obviously see the benefit and upgrades to it’s user – thus solving their problems through innovation. Incremental innovation responds to it’s users needs, making their lives better, becoming more useful and earning…
