The BASIS Method for Driving Everyday Innovation

The BASIS Method for Driving Everyday Innovation


The BASIS Method is a systematic approach for generating and sustaining Everyday Innovation.  It brings meaning and purpose to innovation by defining and branding innovation specific to an organization’s unique needs and goals.  BASIS makes innovation actionable by providing customizable plans that lead to the development of the People and Organizational Capabilities needed to generate new ideas and innovation from all levels and all functions, from everyone, every day.

The BASIS Method reflects not only a powerful strategic approach for driving Everyday Innovation, it also contains powerful, practical tools and templates that support the approach. Further, the BASIS Method is intentionally flexible and can scale to meet your unique needs. It is strategically designed to “meet you where you are,” whatever your current state – and help you put to work whatever you have to work with, in order to start accomplishing quick, visible Everyday Innovation results.

There are five phases of the BASIS Method.

  • Brand
  • Assess
  • Spark
  • Implement
  • Sustain

The five phases of the BASIS Method are summarized at a high level in the BASIS graphic below.  You may also download a copy of this graphic using the button below.

In addition, the BASIS Canvas Tool has been included as a sample from the comprehensive suite of tools and templates used throughout the BASIS Method.  This is a static example of a dynamic tool that is used to define innovation goals and desired outcomes and then bring focus and planning to those goals and outcomes in order to bring them to life.  You may also download a copy of the BASIS Canvas Tool using the button below.
