Schimitar - Corporations


Discover your next generation of new products and services

The Scimitar Programme enables companies to grow by producing a portfolio of innovative “next generation” new products and services, based on company strengths.


  • Trains a team of your people in thinking skills and creativity techniques.
  • Provides a new and exciting perspective of your company’s business prospects.
  • Builds a portfolio of new business ideas, (typically 500) which integrate with your company strengths.
  • Provides a rigorous system to appraise new business ideas.
  • Creatively improves your ideas portfolio and turns ideas into creative business concepts.
  • Produces a short list of 12-24 exciting new products and services for your company.
  • Enables your team to re-run the programme in-house whenever appropriate.


  • We work with a multi-disciplined team of your people, leading them through six day-long workshops over a 6-8 week period.
  • An intensive, four-day programme is also available.
  • Teams are usually between six and fifteen in number.
  • We build a model of your business to make sure we keep focused on your strengths.
  • We train your team how to think creatively and to look for new ideas.
  • We search the model for new ideas using these skills.
  • We develop and assess your ideas through four assessment and development processes to find the winners.
  • We use a mix of styles with people working individually, in single discipline teams or multi-discipline teams, according to the task.
  • The programme is challenging and fun, with a lot of personal development built in.


We only invoice you when we have reached agreed milestones at key stages of the programme.
