Looking for the next Big Thing


How do two global financial players combine their strengths - despite lockdowns and travel restrictions - to generate disruptive business ideas?


  1. Development and set-up of a 5-day innovation summit: two very different corporate cultures, remote, nine time zones across three continents, at least five native languages...
  2. Remote! - new tools, new formats - how to sustain engagement, creativity and enthusiasm?
  3. Getting to know one another, creating understanding, identifying commonalities and building trust
  4. Fast generation of ideas for various focus areas (e.g. mobility & climate change) and selection of top ideas (design thinking approach) - innovation funnel
  5. Reality check within the respective organizations, in order to then promote implementation of the top ideas in two further remote summits - relevant stakeholders, necessary data, resources, schedules, etc.
