Kickbox is the world’s most popular enterprise innovation framework, used at thousands of organizations from multi-nationals (3M, Cisco, Caterpillar, MasterCard, Swisscom, P&G) to educational institutions (ETH, UNSW, USC), government agencies (DARPA, United Nations) and non-profits (Peace Corp, Gates Foundation, Kickstart-Innovation).
It was originally created for internal use at Adobe by Chief Strategist and VP of Creativity Mark Randall and then open-sourced in 2015. Swisscom, the Swiss leading IT- and Telco- company, shaped it further, wrote the powerful KICKBOOK, and supports other companies in implementing the program.
The methodology enables every employee to take an active role in the company's innovation process: submitting and validating their own ideas. No gates are set in the beginning of the process and every idea giver has the chance to prove the idea as valuable to the company. This process is supported by a toolbox. Are you curious what is in that original toolbox of Adobe or Swisscom?
