This article is part of a series of articles on design thinking and deep thinking by thought leaders that transform into what we at CLC Advisors call “i.e.,” the “idea economy.” Where ideas become and transform into widgets for those who choose to dare mighty things to build something bigger than themselves. We are explorers of the universe.

Daiva Naldal is an experienced international marketing and innovation leader with 20+ year of professional career with international brands. She was the former Head of LEGO Ideas ( ideas.lego.com) — a crowdsourcing hub for the LEGO Group that aims to bridge the talent of user- communities into the corporate process.

While the world’s attention has grown indoors in remote work and work from home environments, there isn’t a better time to dive deeper into how to embark on an organizational transformation journey. I sat down with one of LEGO’s former open innovation lead Daiva Naldal to discuss collaboration in gathering some of the best ideas and how to bring them to life. More importantly, a look at how some of the most winning ideas and insights from open innovation communities can transform an organizational journey professionally and personally in the new normal.

“While physical work spaces with a special ‘local’ cultural norms can provide limitations, the online “collabspaces” would filter some of the local challenges away allowing to keep focus on the topic of interest and less so on local factors.”
