"It is radical. It is outrageous. It … works!

What remains, if the most important part of your business gets taken away? A whole lot. In fact,  everything. Just different. Better!

Use RATLab only  if you really want to change something. If you are ready to be unconventional. If you want to (re)invent yourself, your product, your service, all that you do.

Don‘t be afraid. Everything that gets taken away, you get back. though, differently. Better!"

"... I'm convinced that more organisations, from start-ups to corporations would profit from tackling innovation resourcefully... "

Resourceful... what?

What if you could use your available resources, your people, your skills, your data and technology to create new value - with stable or even less costs?  

We've been there. Done that. 

In our time at Corporate labs, for Start-ups, for Mid-size companies, we ran digital transformations with different techniques - Design thinking, TRIZ, Lean Start-up, Six Sigma, Lego Serious play. They all have elements of genius and constraints. Imagine removing all those constraints and leaving just the genius?

The best of all.

With Resourceful Innovation the best of all have been consolidated, in a unique systematic structure. When human centric development meets a solution mind-set of resourcefulness, what happens? Products are created to make customers happy, this is done within the wealth of your own resources! 

We eat our own dog food.

The Resourceful innovation technique has been test run across industries, iterated and improved. Our constant endeavour is to find ways to challenge our own assumptions, question our core beliefs, looping back constantly, persistently to our customers for feedback. 

Why us? To democratise creativity!

With us, it's not only about wild, crazy ideas. We effectively use ambidexterity to harmonise both core and new capabilities. Making challenges of high frequency and high impact the priority. With our tools of creative ideation, it becomes possible to simulate mind-set changes and convert limitations into assets systematically - making innovation accessible to everyone. All you have is what you have, and that is enough!

If you're looking for guidance to move your creative minds to tap their full potential or wanting to bring an idea to life or simply looking for coaching to do any of these on your own, let R.A.T. Lab know! We offer Innovation-as-a-service, to invent solutions that move the needle while preserving your core business!
