Why Torch

Learn why Torch is the best way to boost your results through agile, divergent, productive and efficient ideation processes.

TECHNOLOGY

T4I is a unique platform that allows you to measure, track, accelerate and communicate ideation processes and results in intuitive and easy ways. Practice for free at the T4I public playground, or get a business licence with your own control panel.

METHODOLOGY

The Torch methodology is a multidisciplinary and multisensory approach that trains your creative muscles and accelerates the process of generating innovative ideas.

SPACE

Space is the glue that links the Torch technology layer and its methodology. Torch spaces promote creative thinking, facilitate the use of the methodology and link all parties involved in the innovation process. 

KPIs, METRICS

Understanding how good your ideation processes are is vital. With the T4I control panel you can boost your results by tracking, measuring, comparing and learning from key KPIs.

Across 4 continents

Torch has been present in 4 continents, from Silicon Valley to Vietnam, from Egypt to Slovenia, Spain and beyond.  Pictures from previous Torch events.

The right mix

The secret of an ideation/innovation process that is fast and divergent enough, lies in combining the right kind of convergent ingredients and enough quality divergent ingredients. Torch gives you the fastest recipe to get that right. On top of that it offers innovation consulting, a powerful innovation platform and other ways to accelerate innovation. All is integrated within this unique innovation methodology.

convergent ingredients

Convergent Ingredients

They are information directly related to your challenge. You need to illuminate enough of these and of the right kind.

divergent ingredients

Divergent ingredients

You launch your torches far away to illuminate concepts and information that are less connected to your starting point.

multidisciplinary ideation

Multidisciplinary

Torch helps you illuminate a very diverse field of divergent ingredients by using multiple disciplines and senses. This enriches enormously the process and accelerates the generation of innovative ideas.

divergence process

Mixing it all

To generate innovative ideas that are relevant, convergent and divergent ingredients have to be combined in the right way. That process has some key requirements. Torch guides you to get that mix right.

The Torch innovation platform and methodology

From seed to model.

Five stages take you from the seed of your challenge to a well specified solution.

SEED: You set a starting point and understand what convergent ingredients you hold at the start.

NURTURING: Time to nurture your seed. You gather the rest of the convergent ingredients you need, synthesize all your convergent knowledge and refine your definition of the challenge.

IDEATION: The core of Torch. Time to gather divergent ingredients in a multidisciplinary and multi-sensory way, making use of specific strategies, techniques and tools. Combining your convergent and divergent ingredients in the right way (DITS process), you generate innovative ideas. The T4I technology platform allows you to accelerate these processes as well as track, measure and study them to boost your results.

PROTOTYPE: To get feedback about your ideas, you build prototypes. In response to the feedback you get, you refine ideas and prototypes, iterating the process.

MODEL: It’s time to study in more detail the viability and implementation of the generated solutions. We use a variety of tools including BMCs.
