Learn the Skills of the Future

Learn How to Ideate

Not every company is creative by default. You will learn to find ways to generate creativity within the organization and invite others to co-inspire. We also provide ideas on how to create an incentive program for participation.

Learn How to Develop Great Teams

Innovation isn’t an individual sport. Identifying the skill sets for various team members and empowering them with enough authority to move ideas forward is a key intrapreneurial skill set.

Learn How to Refine an Idea

Ideas don’t arrive fully-baked. You will learn how to find ways to draw more out of them and turn ideas into solutions that will help you address a problem.

Learn What It Takes to Implement a Project

Implementation is potentially the most important step and it’s often a place where innovators fall flat. Allocating resources to the best ideas, communicating and reporting back to the rest of the team can be the difference between success and failure.

Why have an Innovation Program?

It’s very easy to get comfortable with how things are and ride them out—we start with bold ideas, then find ourselves settling in a realistic middle-ground. If the system doesn’t appear to be broken, why try and fix it? Unfortunately, the status quo will slowly drain your organization of its creative energy and stifle the change-oriented thinking that will move your business forward.

Our workshops bring innovative thinking into your projects, products and teams which can be the difference between a business that is doing OK, and one that is targeting real sustainable success.

Our clients have used the innovative process to tackle the following challenges: 

  • Develop new products and services
  • Solve important business problems
  • Kick-off projects and initiatives
  • Add new product features
  • Enter new markets
  • Create engagement and outreach programs
  • Enhance branding and positioning
  • Revamp internal processes
  • Foster team building and collaboration

Innovation is a survival skill.

we help OUR CLIENTS unlock the UNTAPPED potential of THEIR organization using a refreshingly simple approach. OUR INNOVATIVE EXPERIENCES inspire ORGANIZATIONS to THINK DIFFERENTLY, shift priorities and adopt new technologies to accelerate growth AND MEET FUTURE CHALLENGES.

Are you moving forward or standing still?

How does your organization respond to internal changes and external trends and threats? This is a difficult and critical competency that many organizations cannot master on their own. Bringing in an outsider, skilled in problem-solving, creative thinking, and technology integration, can provide the support the organization needs to create the ability to continually evolve and improve. Rather than overwhelm the workforce with big, complex changes, we believe smaller, simpler, individual changes need to occur in order for the change to be fully embraced and adopted efficiently. 

Does "business as usual" seem like your company mantra?

It’s natural for the workforce to be comfortable the way things are, but as a leader, it is up to you to challenge business-as-usual to create the momentum for business growth.

To build this momentum, we believe relationships must be created that challenge senior leaders to question existing behaviors and stimulate necessary workforce changes.

If your organization is facing or making significant change such as technological, regulatory, or structural, we will provide you the tools, support and guidance necessary to thrive through the change.

These are some of the changes we have have guided our clients through:

  • Process improvement initiatives
  • Information technology implementations
  • Creation of new product or service lines
  • Department modernization efforts
  • Post-merger integrations
  • Regulatory compliance and remediation

Hello, I’m Jarrett Meiers, President, and lead consultant of Blueprint Essential.
I understand that adapting to new technologies and processes can be difficult, but ignoring the demands of your customers and employees sends a clear message you are not interested in investing in the future of the relationship.
Rather than turning a blind eye, inspire the change in your organization that will lead to success. To help you I have developed a blueprint - a process for managing change - that can be repeated, providing predictable, profitable results that will guide you to new heights.
Make a change and reward your customers and employees with a future to be proud of.
