Get out of the box and into the cube! Demystify and uncomplicate even the toughest product development challenges…

What is the CUBE?

A simple, yet deep system of tools and references that help you and your team solve just about any product development challenge and guide difficult decision making. Whether you are trying to improve the customer value of your products and services or looking for a game changing business approach, the InnovationCUBE can help you focus your team to discover the best solutions. The CUBE can be used in any phase of your development cycle to reduce wastes and costs, guide project course corrections, uncover new profitable opportunities and address just about any issue in product development.

In brief, the InnovationCUBE is a comprehensive framework that helps:

  • Stimulate individual and team-based problem solving in a structured, focused manner
  • Define challenges in a way that produces common understanding among all stakeholders
  • Break through cross-functional barriers by providing a common language and approach
  • Make problem solving more enjoyable, fast and productive

Common sense….codified for ease of use

The techniques presented in the InnovationCUBE are not new. The Huthwaite Innovation Institute created them more than twenty years ago. "The breakthrough is how we have packaged the innovation learning and doing experience," says Bart Huthwaite, Sr., founder of the Institute. Organizations want innovation now. They want speed, low cost, and quick results. The InnovationCUBE delivers on this need.

What the CUBE Is Not

The CUBE is not a random brainstorming system, untested theory or a loose set of tools. It doesn’t require high creativity or deep technical skills. It makes innovation accessible to every project team for any purpose. Applications range from products, services and processes to organizational strategies and new business models.

Easily Learned & Integrated

The CUBE requires no special training. It uses a learning-by-doing, “hands on” format. Project teams begin to deliver results immediately. The CUBE does not conflict with any existing continuous improvement methods. Using the CUBE is just the opposite. It strengthens Six Sigma, Lean, Design to Cost, Phase Gate Development and other initiatives.

How it works

Check out our Table Of Contents page that lists the contents of the InnovationCUBE Team Kit. When you first unpack your CUBE, you may be overwhelmed with the sheer amount of tools and materials, but once you become familiar with them, you will quickly see the powerful simplicity of putting the CUBE into action and start getting immediate results.

Guided by the leader and user guides, you and your team members will come together in workshops and meetings and use the CUBE together in a step-by-step fashion to define the critical issues facing your product, project or business, and essentially use the CUBE as a system of filters through which you will arrive at the best fit solutions. Many companies would go through the exact same process with an external consultant at significant cost, but the guidance of the CUBE replaces the need for outside expertise and gives you the power and insight to do it yourself.

Sound too good to be true? How is this possible? Each leader and user guide sets you up by feeding you the right questions and walks you through the process of finding the right answers by giving you the focus of literally thousands of teams and companies who have done this exact process many times before. With guidelines and charts that you fill out with your team, the CUBE takes out all the guesswork and forces you to zero in on what truly matters. It truly is common sense that’s been codified for ease of use and repeatability.
