Flexpedition

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.

Background

There are...

  • 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.

Lead Time

Duration of a Flexpedition

A Flexpedition consists of 6 clearly defined parts

Working in cycles

After each stage has been completed, the scope of the subsequent stage will be determined jointly on the basis of the results, findings, and experience of the previous stage.

After each stage, there is a possibility of stopping. Within one stage it is possible to stop only in case of emergency.

Nobody is forced to be present at a stage.
