Deep empathy for the community you serve is critical to the sustainability of your enterprise and the relevance of your intervention. Through this workshop, you’ll learn how to identify needs from a real world situation through first hand accounts. You’ll then translate those needs into dozens of possible ideas for effective solutions. Finally, we’ll help you build out your ideas with the critical launch considerations for a new viable sustainable concept.
Founded in 1998, Jump Associates is a fifty-person hybrid strategy firm focused on growth. They have offices in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City. Their people partner with visionary leaders to create new businesses and reinvent existing ones by tackling highly ambiguous challenges. They have also created a unique and compelling workplace culture that is recognized as one of the best in America.
Jump believes that when multiple disciplines inhabit the same brain, something magical starts to happen: the disciplines themselves mutate and hybridize. It is an organization of “hybrid people” – folks with chemistry degrees who are also skilled artists, anthropologists who previously worked as design researchers, and electrical engineers with MBAs. What these people all possess is the ability to make previously unseen connections, within their own mind, across disparate fields of knowledge.
Jump tackles challenges by creating new ways of thinking at the intersection of design, culture and business. They are one-part humanist, one-part capitalist and one-part technologist. By defining a clear strategy for growth, Jump helps committed leaders unleash the talent of their organizations.
