The 106-year old design firm (architecture, interiors, graphics, and branding) launched a new practice last year called Guided Performance Scorecard (GPS) to prioritize its 20 best ideas and see them to completion. A weekly Monday morning meeting is held with team leaders to review the status and progress of each initiative. The company also hosts monthly informal @4 gatherings in the late afternoon to share ideas and socialize over drinks. Occasional Creativity Fire Drills showcase each team’s current design projects.
