Culture

Ideation’s core strength comes from our people. Our people share the following set of attributes and aspirations that shape the atmosphere in which we work.

Problem-solving mindset

Ideation is a team of highly skilled and highly motivated problem solvers. We use design thinking to think broadly about what the real issues underlying a problem might be and methodically ask “why?” questions to get at root causes. Using the process of ideation, we practice approaching challenges in imaginative ways, and we respond with innovative solutions.
