The Kickbox Foundation is a community of Kickbox enthusiasts and practitioners. Here you can find Kickbox open-source material from Adobe and rready, and exchange thoughts with other members.
Kickbox is a methodology in corporate innovation to activate employees and create business impact. It was invented by Mark Randall, serial entrepreneur and former VP of Creativity at Adobe. He open-sourced parts of the material and thousands of companies adapted it. An extensive adaption was done by rready, which is a Swiss spin-out of Swisscom.
The purpose of the KICKBOX Foundation is to give some material and insights back to the community.
Kickbox is the world’s most popular enterprise innovation framework based on a methodology invented by Adobe and further shaped by rready.
It has been used at thousands of organizations from multi-nationals (3M, Cisco, Caterpillar, MasterCard, Swisscom, P&G, Roche, Implenia, Zurich Insurance) to educational institutions (ETH, UNSW, USC), government agencies (DARPA, United Nations) and non-profits (Peace Corp, Gates Foundation, Kickstart-Innovation, Careum). Kickbox has been also featured in several academic publications, such as Harvard Business Review.
The methodology enables every employee to take an active role in the company's innovation process: submitting and validating their own ideas. Controlled freedom and support is given to the intrapreneurs in the beginning 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 Adobeor rready?
Why Kickbox is open source?
Everyone should be enabled to test their business ideas because what might start as raw idea might transform into a valuable product or service – no matter if you are a student, a consultant, a manager or an innovation guru. Every business manager can get hold of the material and assess it, use it for its own company's innovation program or get in touch with the people behind the material. That is the reason why Adobeand rreadyshared some of their material.
