Exploring Uncommon Pathways

In a world of increasing complexity and increased connectedness, it seems that the issues now confronting us are of such a scale they can only be described as ‘wicked problems’ – or as Wikipedia puts it, problems that are ‘difficult or impossible to solve because of incomplete, contradictory, and changing requirements that are often difficult to recognise’.

 

It’s these issues that leave you wishing for a eureka moment; a flash of break-through thinking that often seems more elusive the more you need it. And they can’t be solved by traditional means. NotYetKnown provides skills, insight and frameworks to help you pilot your way through the chaos to see a collective future, and enable moments of imagination to deliver the break-through thinking you need.

 

Typically, this isn’t achieved by a single stroke of genius – notoriously unpredictable at the best of times. Instead we work together to co-design processes, to reach a unified future vision. We see it a bit like helming a lifeboat in rough seas – it’s the collective power of the single oars, directed appropriately, that will resolve the problem.  And the proof is in how we’ve applied our processes across a wide range of challenges.

For example, we:

 

  • Partnered with one of New Zealand’s most recognised iwi to tangibly express their generational values, and establish the framework for a community centre they can be proud of. This centre ‘earns its right’ to be in the natural environment, by identifying and mitigating environmental issues, resulting in a ‘triple-net-zero’ building (zero energy, waste and water).

 

  • Helped one of the country’s leading environmental charities to strategise and envision a pathway to deliver an urban eco education and delivering their aspiration to set up a pop-up centre. This aims to shift locals’ eco-commitment towards large-scale ecological clean-up, through activities, educational programmes and public-awareness campaigns.

 

  • Strategically partnered with NZ’s largest city’s Economic Development Unit to establish a platform for rapid economic growth business, creating infrastructure that underpins an environment of innovation and rapid SME business growth.
