CONCEPTUALIZE - VISUALIZE - PRODUCTIZE

THROUGH OUR DEEP APPLIED CREATIVITY™ METHODOLOGY, WE EMPOWER OUR PARTNERS TO ANSWER THEIR MOST CHALLENGING PROBLEMS AND TO THINK DIFFERENTLY ABOUT WHERE THEY ARE, WHERE THEY'RE GOING, AND THE BEST WAY TO GET THERE.

 

What is Deep Applied Creativity™

Built around the principles of both deep machine learning and the collaborative creative process, Deep Applied Creativity ™ is a multidisciplinary, immersive, and iterative approach to rapid problem solving that RL Leaders brings to everything we do. We know that solving today's challenges cannot rely on methods of the past, but must instead seek the unrealized connections between the data points that will lead to sustainable, effective solutions.

In deep learning, machines do not simply follow task-specific algorithms to generate standardized outputs. Instead they learn from layered data representations to identify which features are useful for generating true understanding of a question. The collaborative creative process, likewise, builds each project layer by layer with input from multiple creatives at every stage of production. RL Leaders has coupled these iterative processes with our unique convening authority to assemble creative subject matter experts from a diverse slate of industries and disciplines, allowing us to help your organization refine insights and ideas until the optimal solution is revealed.


How does a Deep Applied Creativity™ Panel work?

Once formed, mindsets are resistant to change, leaving traditional brainstorming efforts ineffective at identifying innovative and forward-thinking solutions. Unlike internal organization brainstorming, RL Leaders' Deep Applied Creativity ™ Panels introduce the diverse experience and perspectives of our network of subject matter experts to deliver insights that step outside of your organization's existing mental models.

At the Panel, we break down a challenge in much the same way that tv writers break a story in the room: without boundaries but with an eye toward both the short-term endgame and what will come next. We begin by examining the elements of the current situation and how they connect to the challenge at hand. We use those elements to inform scenarios that tackle distinct facets of the challenge, similar to how writers break a story into A- B- and C- plots. The insights gleaned from the scenario work are then woven together to shape the final narrative.

Just as writers follow the ideas and see where they lead, our Panel enables the best ideas to guide your organization to the optimal solution. The only rule is that every idea has value in the process. Writers note every suggestion in the room, because even when an idea isn't the perfect answer in the moment, it can ultimately prove to be a crucial piece later in the story.
