What sets us apart

Through our Innovation Labs we focus on people’s mindsets! Tools and techniques are crucial. But we have learned that in order to strengthen the innovation capacity across teams and organizations and have a lasting impact, one must start with the set of attitudes that support those objectives.

“I worked with Reinhold as part of Santa Clara University’s course redesign initiative, helping our faculty shift from teaching in a classroom to teaching anywhere. The mentoring experience with Reinhold was extraordinary.

Reinhold’s rich expertise in problem-solving and people-centered creative solutions and learning experience design rescued me. If some of my students become interested in careers in international development assistance and contribute to alleviating poverty and hunger, it will mainly be thanks to Reinhold.”

“IntoActions led over 80 participants (Rector, Vice-Rectors, Deans, Professors, Administrators, Students) through a 4-week participatory human-centered strategic design workshop at the Universidad Católica del Uruguay (UCU). The goals of the workshop were to introduce a strategic innovation model, identify key areas that UCU wanted to improve or develop, and create prototype solutions.

The experience was extraordinary in many ways—for its novel approach that energized the organization internally; for the inclusion of all key stakeholders, including 20 students, throughout the entire process; for its hands-on and practical approach; and for its results. Three out of the four selected prototype projects have already been implemented and are working well. The workshop was very successful and good for UCU’s heart and soul, and already left a lasting rhythm of innovation.”
