AGILS is a game changer that helps you to stay ahead of the game!
AGILS is different. AGILS is a game changer. It alters the way people innovate and collaborate.
Why and how?
We developed AGILS to help to dig out ideas never otherwise uncovered or even created. AGILS reinvents co-innovation and collaboration by providing an immersive 3D experience embracing diversity and creativity. And it works!
AGILS helps to harness all available brainpower so that even the wildest ideas and suggestions will come to the surface. It helps to go behind the everyday work roles and genuinely pay attention to what is being said, instead of who is saying it.
AGILS unleashes creative thinking and elevates dialogue. It uses arts to stimulate imagination, make new connections in our neural network, and come up with novel ideas and solutions.
AGILS breaks down barriers, fades out hierarchy and bias providing a level playing field for participants to enjoy democratic innovation and collaboration.
Results can be groundbreaking, AGILS helps you to stay ahead of the game!
AGILS – Co-innovate and collaborate
Step into AGILS Artful Innovation (AI) Gallery. Here you can work with innovation, engagement, strategy and solve problems creatively. AI-Gallery helps to develop new ideas and perspectives on any chosen topic. It can also be used as a peer group tool for support, sharing and learning. AI-Gallery utilizes art as a catalyst for creative thinking.
AGILS – Simulate lean and agile
Agile Avenue is a AGILS scenario developed for simulating lean and agile methods. It is particularly suitable for practicing teamwork. Real life project tasks can be used in the sessions.
AGILS Learning Simulations
In addition, the AGILS platform can be used to implement applications for training (e.g. challenging conversations) easily, quickly and cost-effectively. Learning is enhanced by an environment free of social pressure, bias and prejudice. Learning cases can involve, for example, customer service, leadership, challenging conversations, or teamwork e.g. in the operating room.
AGILS and underlying research
AGILS is based on systems thinking, on the understanding of everything being interconnected. We shift from a linear mindset to a circular one. Here a small intervention into a small part of the system can bring about a big change in the whole system due to the interdependence of the parts of the system.
AGILS co-founder and CEO, PhD Eija Mäkirintala applies systems thinking into behavioural sciences and her coaching method – she wrote the first coaching-related doctoral dissertation in Finland on the subject (University of Helsinki, Finland).
The Self-determination theory by R.M. Ryan and E.D. Deci is central to AGILS with its´s three basic needs of autonomy, competence, and relatedness. Regarding creative thinking, the theories of Theresa M. Amabile and Edward de Bono are utilized. Read also some thoughts on creativity from neuroscience by Gregory Berns here.
AGILS technology includes a patented story engine, which makes AGILS’s structure and user experience unique.
Using AGILS applications requires PC/Windows (Win 7 or later) or Mac OS/X (10.11.8. or later).
