Your engagement in Shared Spaces starts with an immersive 4-month cohort program where you’ll connect with 30 leaders from various industries. During these 4 months, you will meet remotely on a monthly basis to explore innovations and technologies driving the future of healthcare, mobility, and industrial markets.
After completing the program, you’ll gain access to our growing Shared Spaces Community. This network offers opportunities for continued collaboration and new innovations.
There is a convergence in industry segmentation. Accelerated by the pandemic and digital transformation, our work and lives are becoming more integrated.
It’s more important than ever to understand trends outside of your own industry.
Shared Spaces aims to connect these seemingly separate industries so you and your team can stay ahead of our connected future. By exposing yourself to other industries you’ll also get the benefit of fresh ideas and inspiration. So, don’t limit yourself to your corner of the world – open your mind and explore what’s out there!
The industry reports were created in partnership with Ebco Trends, a trend-powered innovation firm. The reports are used throughout the cohort to explore the impact of emerging trends within each industry and how these industries will evolve over the next 3-5 years.
One of the most valuable parts of the program for every Shared Spaces member is the breakout sessions during the cohort meetings. These sessions are designed to foster cross-industry collaboration, where we divide the cohort into groups to tackle questions about how leading companies can harness the potential of the trends outlined in the reports to drive innovation.
For instance, during the mobility cohort meeting, the group explored a scenario of how Amazon could revolutionize city movement, using the power of micro-trends like e-mobility, MaaS, and micro-mobility.
Begin your four month journey by looking outside your industry and exploring the trends and innovations driving change in the industrial, healthcare, and mobility spaces.
Engage with 30 cross-functional leaders through interactive whiteboards and virtual meetings as we guide you through the latest trend reports in each of these spaces.
As you expose yourself to what is happening in different spaces, ideas for innovation will start to emerge. As ideas are curated and evolve, they will be captured in our virtual whiteboard experience.
We’ll focus on new ideas in overlapping spaces and think about how the changes in one space impact another.
At the end of your journey, you’ll have the opportunity to express interest in a project. Actions on ideas is where real innovation happens.
Projects can take the form of co-development with other cohort members or your own internal innovation project.
+ what to expect from Shared Spaces
These 90-minute virtual meetings will be facilitated by Twisthink who will present the trend reports and provide opportunities for discussion.
Upon conclusion of each meeting, cohort members will receive a copy of the industrial, healthcare, and mobility trend reports.
In between meetings, members will receive prompts in the form of ThoughtSparks and Mindsets to keep minds fresh and mining for insights.
After cohort completion, members will gain access to the Community, which will serve as a platform to collaborate and solve cross-industry problems.
We understand that your time is valuable, and committing to a 4-month program may seem significant for some. But we believe the value significantly outweighs the time investment. There is no limit to what ideas and inspiration this may spark for you or your team.
