Working with the Ruby Cha Cha team on some of our recent innovation projects has been a pleasure. A key value add the team bring to the innovation process for us is in the way they do the ‘hard yards’ of mining existing information and research for category trends prior to any workshop. This allows subsequent workshops to be much more focused and helps bring all attendees quickly up to speed with what’s going on in any category. For the workshop itself the focus on consumer first is key for us in creating innovation that truly speaks to consumer needs. I would recommend Ellen and her team as a key contact to kick off any innovation process.
