"The City of West Hollywood used Models of Impact's Public Sector Expansion Pack during our Innovation Academy trainings. We enjoyed thinking creatively about solutions for the city's challenges, and had fun imagining the potential for new programs and services!"

the methodology

Our methodology is broken into 4 distinct segments: Learn, Invent, Program, and Report. After taking a deep-dive into the landscape of existing models that are relevant to your areas of interest/operation, users engage in a cross-pollination of ideas that serve as the catalyst for a new product, service, or program. The "secret sauce" of the Models of Impact methodology is a game-based experience that creates the space for spontaneous discovery in order to challenge ideas and help you think BIG. By exploring a range of ideas in an unbiased manner, you are able to understand the edges of your opportunity for impact. 

"Our recent collaborations with the City of West Hollywood, as well as past experiences speaking with the White House, and working with the City of Los Angeles and other municipalities have really highlighted the opportunity and need for something like this."

"It is not only our option to re-design business and society, it is our responsibility. We are ethically bound to leave a decent world for those future generations to come. Future-oriented, socially-minded business could be a part of how we overcome some of the systems challenges we face."
