You work for the government and you have to build from scratch a dashboard that measures innovation in your agency. Never mind that your government probably hasn’t even developed a comprehensive system of innovation. Oh, did we mention that you have less than a day to do it?
Welcome to the 2011 Victoria Public Service (VPS) DeepDiveTM innovation workshop. Here, innovators from the Victoria Public Service (VPS)—and earlier in the week the Australian federal government--gathered to design systems that gauge whether their innovation efforts were delivering results. And with that one-day timeframe, it wasn’t going to be easy.
That’s where Deloitte’s DeepDiveTM comes in. An approach for rapid brainstorming and problem solving, DeepDiveTM has been used hundreds of times by Deloitte to help companies, governments, and nonprofits innovate. DeepDiveTM enables teams to create breakthrough solutions in a dramatically shorter time than conventional problem-solving approaches.
