“The most impactful portion of our innovation journey has been the base-wide cultural change. This intentionally crafted culture change has created a true innovation movement that is improving our ability to achieve the mission and boost quality of life.”
– General E. John “Dragon” Teichert, Commander, Edwards Air Force Base
Gapingvoid Culture Design Group has a track record of successfully designing and sustaining commercial and Air Force cultures where innovation thrives. For example, over approximately 90 days, Gapingvoid increased innovation engagement at Edwards AFB by over 100-fold. We are unaware of any other program in the USAF achieving such results.
For innovation to thrive, cultures must be deliberately designed. At the same time, innovative cultures also drive organizational effectiveness. Innovative cultures are designed to perpetuate norms and behaviors that deliver collaborative, transparent, and communication-rich environments. The execution of an agile, change-adaptive mindset is both a top-down and bottom-up affair and needs to be designed accordingly.
Together we combine research in the areas of behavioral science, social science, management science, and neuroscience that allow us to develop a truly unique approach to human-centered change. Our tools integrate into communications, on-boarding, training, and spark new conversations and connections.
