What is Kickbox?

Kickbox is the world’s most popular enterprise innovation framework, used at thousands of organizations from multi-nationals (3M, Cisco, Caterpillar, MasterCard, Swisscom, P&G) to educational institutions (ETH, UNSW, USC), government agencies (DARPA, United Nations) and non-profits (Peace Corp, Gates Foundation, Kickstart-Innovation). It was originally created for internal use at Adobe by Chief Strategist and VP of Creativity Mark Randall and then open-sourced in 2015.

Teaser Case Study: Adobe Kickbox

The invention of the Adobe Kickbox was the begining of a global movement. Adobe developed Kickbox for its own internal use and created both a process for individuals and a system for deploying that process across an organization at scale. It’s designed to increase innovator effectiveness, accelerate innovation velocity, and measurably improve innovation outcomes. It can also optimize innovation investments by reducing costs compared to traditional approaches.

Teaser Case Study: Swisscom Kickbox

Swisscom piloted Adobe Kickbox in 2015. Stats: 400+ RedBox ideas, 60+ BlueBox projects, 10+ implementations. Swisscom added to the framework things like time-boxing, a “GOOTB” package, etc. To make it more scaleable, Swisscom developed Getkickbox.com, a platform to easily manage the program (email coaching, etc.) and for Kickboxers to access internal experts, external services, etc. Since 2018, Getkickbox.com is offered as a “ready-to-use” Kickbox-SaaS solution.
