Expand your comfort zone in the quest for the unknown unknowns.
What is a Flexpedition
The "BrainStore Flexpedition" is a unique journey into the future of your organization. Detached from day-to-day business, central themes of the future are considered.
During the Flexpedition, an awareness of the necessity of change and the desire for the future arises. The comfort zone is extended.
During the Flexpedition, initiatives are created which affect different areas of the organization and can be put into practice after the return.
- Things we know
- Things we know we don't know.
- Things we don't know we don't know.
Goal of the Flexpedition
Together we set out to discover uncharted territories of which we do not yet know today that they exist.
These observations and encounters lead to new approaches - even far beyond today's imagination.
These approaches form the breeding ground for change.
- What are the unknown unknowns?
- How do we want to help shape the future?
- Which scenarios do we want to be prepared for?
- Where will our organization stand in 10 years?
- How do we create a desire for the future and change?
- How do we increase market proximity and agility?
- Where do we break out of traditional silo structures?
- How do we create a completely new innovation culture?

Nobody is forced to be present at a stage.
