DO CAMP 

KICKOFF YOUR EXPLORATION OF OUTSIDE-OF-THE-BOX IDEAS

To tackle problems in a new way, you need to stretch beyond your internal creativity to get fresh input. Ideating new concepts with innovators from around the world is a quick first step towards exploring topics and solutions for challenges.

Working with the DO School lets you tap into our global community of purposeful DOers to quickly get new perspectives. Through our DO Camp, we’ll help you formulate your challenge and take a group made up of your internal team members and the most relevant experts and innovators from our community through an inspiring week of co-creation.

The DO Camp has been tried and tested in over 20 countries, guaranteeing you’ll quickly get validated concepts ready to be tested.

Together, we take your already-developed concepts and develop a plan on how to test them in your market.

DO ENGINE 

MAKE INNOVATION PART OF YOUR ORGANIZATIONS DNA

Creating a culture of innovation doesn’t happen in one workshop. When you’re committed to a bigger vision, you need to regularly find new formats to accelerate the development of different solutions and products.

With the DO Engine, you create a permanent in-house innovation lab that drives entrepreneurial thinking in your organization over multiple years. The DO Engine isn’t a quick fix, but lets you challenge the usual way of doing things repeatedly to instill disruption into your organization’s core. By getting to practice entrepreneurial skills instead of just learning the theory, you’ll develop purposeful employees that establish new, agile ways of working across departments.

Focused around your key purpose, we’ll help you bring in outside perspectives to solve challenges and create services, products, and business models that stick. 

Key elements of a DO Engine can include any of the following:

  • Co-creation of a goal-oriented plan to go from idea to action
  • Innovation made easy through the DO School method and facilitation
  • Effective engagement with startups to create win-win scenarios
  • Development of prototypes ready for testing

Through co-creation session, we bring in input and create exchange between your key employees, DO School experts, and key innovators from our community. To keep you in the loop and engaged on a strategic level, we also regularly host dedicated council sessions with the most important stakeholders. These energetic sessions are a place for exchange where we check in on our progress and make strategic decisions to stay on track.

The DO School has partnered with organizations around the world, including H&M, YouTube, BMW, Unilever, United Nations, and more to empower team members to be more creative, agile, and entrepreneurial.
