Celebrating Thomas Edison

Thomas Alva Edison, born February 11, 1847, would have celebrated his 170th birthday this month. He was a visionary and a world renown inventor who brought us inventions like the phonograph, the motion-picture camera, and the light bulb. His devices changed the world around us and broke barriers of creativity and innovation.

 

His ability to think differently inspired us to name one of our methodologies after him. Edison is our signature ideation program anchored in empathic insights and our proprietary Creativity Principles. In our Edison workshop, we generate ideas to resolve human tensions.

 

“I never perfected an invention that I did not think about in terms of the service it might give others…”
Thomas Edison

 

That is a perspective we aspire to every day – to humanize innovation. We want our clients to think differently and really understand the people they are trying to serve. Stepping outside of the normal into the unknown.

 

Happy Birthday Thomas Edison!
