Flexpeditions – discover the unknown unknowns: Events to dig deeper and speed up the innovation process
|Get. It. Done.||We focus on getting things done. We focus on what is most relevant. We joyfully ignore what's not relevant and distracting.|
|Simplicity||We visualize work, progress, and results. We treasure clear thinking and comprehensive language.|
|Amass - Discover - Decide||We start with collecting information with quantitative goals - we extract what looks most promising - and decide which avenues to pursue.|
|Broadly accepted content - polarizing content||We search for, and treasure broadly accepted ideas and strongly polarizing ideas.|
|Curiosity and experiments||We are highly attracted to environments of uncertainty. We like to move out of our comfort zone. We love to experiment and improve our skills. We ask questions and don't guess. We know that we don't know.|
|Creating a framework for good cooperation||We work hard - we play hard. We know how important soft factors are to change work. Great ideas happen when fear is absent. Change and innovation need space and a playful approach. We celebrate failure and celebrate success. Both are very unusual for the Swiss.|
|Diversity and inclusion||In everything we do, we want to integrate humans with multiple viewpoints. We know that the integration of multiple viewpoints and opinions is key to successful change work. And we work hard to get all the stakeholder's buy-in. We are sensitive to cultural differences.|
|Clearly defined roles||We define roles with clear responsibilities. We only work on projects we want to work on. And we only work with customers and participants who want to be part of the change adventure.|
|Code of Conduct and Purpose||Working with ad hoc teams means agreeing on collaboration standards and pursuing a uniting purpose.|
|Work in Cycles||Before we start to work, we develop a good briefing with a set deadline, set resources, and a clear minimal scope. Though we keep the big picture in mind, we work in digestible cycles inspired by agile working principles.|
|Ongoing improvement||We strive for simplicity and scalability. This allows us to focus on people and content. We try not to repeat ourselves and respect the D.R.Y principles (don't repeat yourself)|
|Transparency||Fast processing and full transparency. No politics. No games. We wholeheartedly share insights, know-how, and findings. We ask questions, also the unpleasant ones.|
|Skin in the game||We don't mind rolling our sleeves up and getting our hands dirty. We have skin in the game, and as co-entrepreneurs of our customers take personal risks, that's why we apply the Pay-What-You-Wish principle.|
BrainStore has run more than 1000 projects. From very large corporations to Government agencies, from NGO to start-ups. And yes, even together with individuals wanting to Get. It. Done.

All of BrainStore's customers set the price for BrainStore's contribution - after receiving and reviewing the results; they are completely free to set any price they consider adequate.
