Program Details

How it works

Step 1: Two interviews - The first to determine your fit for the program, the second is an in depth whiteboard session to identify your most critical needs, the items you will focus on during the program, your deliverables.

Step 2: Acceptance - Once each party has determined there is a fit and that there is value in the program the company will officially begin the program. During the program you will have three to four deliverables that focus on the most critical aspects of your business needs.

Step 3: Weekly Mentor Sessions - Each week staff or mentors will facilitate a whiteboard session to work on your key items. The key items will be mapped out based on reasonable time frames to complete the items.

Step 4: Monthly Advisor Sessions - Each month your advisor will facilitate a check-in session to evaluate your work to date. You may complete a whiteboard session to map out any obstacles to accomplishing your critical success factors.

Of Note: Companies will be developing in short sprints with specific items that will take 3 to 6 months to complete and no longer. Companies can take part as many times as needed, as long as their are valid business needs the IDEA Works program can address.
