How We Do It
IDENTIFY OPPORTUNITIES USING INNOVATION CAPITALISATION™
MODE identifies not only the expected outcomes from a project, but also the underlying reasons dictating the need for the project. This allows for the identification of the ‘Capital in Reserve’ and employment of innovative approaches to incorporate social and environmental solutions to best deliver the clients required outcomes.
EXPLORE IDEAS AND MEASURE AGAINST THE FOUR PILLARS
From the first identification of issues, MODE comprehensively explores the opportunities across the four pillars – economic, social, environmental and educative determine how design can best facilitate and maximise the benefits associated with the project.
STRATEGISE THE DELIVERY
MODE has a wealth of best practice experience and this, in conjunction with lateral thinking expertise, is strategised to determine how the opportunities can best be delivered. During this phase MODE assesses potential options available to the client and where possible, quantifies the economic, social, environmental and educative outcomes. This allows for informed decision making regarding the best overall approach for the project from an economic and socially conscious perspective.
QUANTIFY THE OUTCOMES AGAINST INNOVATION CAPITALISATION FOUR PILLARS
As a final step, MODE quantifies the potential outcomes so that all benefits can be clearly communicated to the client, the community and potential partners. Experience has shown that this can increase the number of willing partners on a project and increase the returns for each of them.
The possibilities of Innovation Capitalisation are endless and through ongoing research, experience and knowledge, MODE uses this innovative and unique design approach to unlock even more community focused outcomes.
