Our Beliefs

Great partnerships are built on shared beliefs and values. Here are ours.

Our Beliefs About Innovation

We believe the need for more people to be more innovative more often is a global, social and economic imperative.

We believe any individual, team and organization has the potential to innovate, but may not know how.

We believe the best innovations are designed to serve people in new and meaningful ways.

We believe innovation can be deliberate by using design as a problem-solving approach.

Our Beliefs About Design

We can’t say it any better than Nobel laureate Herb Simon: “Everyone designs who devises courses of action aimed at changing existing situations into preferred ones.”

We believe there is a need for universal design literacy.

We believe Human-Centered Design is the discipline of developing solutions in the service of people.

Our Beliefs About Learning

We believe people learn new skills in three fundamental ways — formal instruction, peer-to-peer collaboration and hands-on application.

We believe 90 percent of learning occurs outside formal instruction.

We believe the best way to accelerate adoption of new skills — and build a culture of innovation — is a simple and scalable system that leverages and advances the three ways of learning.

Our Beliefs About Doing Business

We deeply value what our clients have to say, and in listening to their stories, opinions and feedback.

We believe our success is best measured by what our clients achieve using the LUMA System of Innovation.
