2016 hurtled past and gave us plenty of food for thought and inspiration for the new year. If like us you’re in a contemplative mood before rushing to pen suitable New Year’s resolutions, we hope you will enjoy the 100%Open highlights for 2016 and find at least one thing to inspire you.
We’ve moved! In Autumn this year we became residents of Huckletree, a new co-working space nestled neatly in between Old Street and the City. More than ever we are now perfectly positioned to connect the suits with the sneakers! Pop in and say hello any time!
We’ve rounded the year off with an award, winning the 2016 MRS Insight Management award with our Swiss partners Catalyx for our work with the ICRC. It’s great for a crowdsourcing case like RED Innovation to be recognised by the market research industry, and this points to the growing use of online platforms for generating insights as well as ideas. Versatile things, crowds.
A virtual group hug to the 100%Open family members who joined us this year. In 2016 we welcomed Jaclyn Knight (Senior Innovation Manager), Rosie Wynne (Project Manager) and Lily Scowen (Designer) to our studio. We’ve also add a few new faces to our associate network, and we’re thrilled to be working with you all!
In 2017 we’re looking to expand our team still further, so check out these new opportunities if you’re interested in becoming an 100%Opener!
We hope you’ve been assiduously following our blog but as we’ve been quite prolific this year one or two posts may have passed you by. Here are some highlights:
2016 has been one for the 100%Open airmiles stash as many of our projects have focused on innovation in far-flung cities.
We’re working with Ford to deliver the Go Detroit Challenge, designed to find mobility innovations that help all Detroiters to travel more easily, safely, and reliably.
UBS Future of Finance Forums are taking place in London, Zurich, New York and Hong Kong. Our goal is to bring together experts from across the financial services industry to look at the topics of Digital Identity, Intelligent Automation, Marketplaces and Beyond Money.
That’s probably more than you’ve got time for so thanks for indulging us. In 2017 year we look forward to announcing the launch of the 100%Open Innovation Toolkit 2.0 that we’ve been busy constructing. There’s even a rumour that 100%Open is writing a book about open organisations, based on our new Open Organisation Test. Please take the test and become part of the story.
Wishing you a networked New Year!
The 100%Open Team
