The Innovation LaunchPad is a creative, exciting opportunity for association teams to design, develop, and prototype new approaches for their toughest issues through the practical application of design thinking methodology. During a consultative and rigorous journey, teams of five from each participating association will undertake a project that culminates with an in-person experience to address and systematically generate solutions to a personalized design challenge.

Through a hands-on and evidence-based approach, teams will accelerate their organization’s success by:

  • breaking through barriers to improve the bottom line
  • conducting necessary research to create a viable “human centered” prototype
  • achieving product, process, and business model innovations
  • delivering better results to expand market and increase overall member value
  • remaining relevant through continuous innovation

If you are interested in bringing a team to this unique experience and expanding their capacity for innovation more broadly, please contact the ASAE Learning Department at [email protected] concerning registration or consideration for future program offerings.
