i&R | Collective Innovation & Design

Research supports the design, development and validation of tools and methods for Collective Innovation. The field work is focussed on health and welfare.

  • TeamEquilibrium  is a tool to manage the intelligence of innovative teams to become more efficient and effective.
  • PINN is an innovation Diagnostic, designed to help organisations to manage  and evolve their innovative capacities.
  • SmartDelphi is a digitaly enhanced Delphi tool to facilitate participative processes.
  • PINNTS is a project based training program created to foster innovation skills in a health coLearning environment.
  • Excelnets is a methodology to support health professionals in collaborative processes of innovation and research.

i&R | SmartDelphi

Development and assessment of participative tools and strategies

Working on Smart Delphi. Digitally enhanced Delphi. (Real Time Delphi)


Former research

Boston, June 2014, Collective Intelligence Conference at MIT. A perfect scenario to discuss the design of Smart Delphi and the huge research opportunities. Delphi has been modified in many ways since the 60’s, but nowadays digital strategies may propel creativity much more than before.

i&R | Team Equilibrium

Help teams to become more efficient and effective

Working on TeamEquilibrium Development and validation of a tool to help teams to know and manage collective intelligence.  + About TeamEquilibrium


Former research

After so many years of working in teams, different in sizes and coats, having much more failures than successes, something has been learnt: We always try to get a better environment but it takes time and a lot of patience to manage egos, conflicts and misunderstandings.        

[cp] Non-Technical Skills in Chronic Care Healthcare Professionals: Applying Health Consensus in Collective Self-Assessment
Martí, T.,  Monguet JMª, Trejo, A., Escarrabill J.  (2015). Collective Intelligence 2015, University of Michigan
The goal was to test the Non-Technical Skills (NTS) model applying collective self-assessment among professionals involved in care of chronic patients. Two aspects were assessed: the current NTS level of the team and its potential for improvement. The final purpose of this model is to guide healthcare managers to design and prioritize (collective) training strategies for NTS. + [Paper]

TE agregated exagon design[cp] Team Equilibrium and Innovation Performance
Ferruzca, M., Monguet, JMª, Trejo, A., & Rodrigues, J. (2013). Design Management Symposium (TIDMS). Shenzhen: IEEE.
It may be taken for granted that there must be a balance of roles within teams to foster creativity. Team Equilibrium is a system that allows a group of people to share, compare and aggregate their profiles using the “six hats model”, proposed by de Bono. In a first empiric exploration, with a group of design students, it’s interesting to look at the aggregated hexagon of the 60 people highlighting the natural creative bias of the group. + [Paper]

i&R | Potential of innovation

i&R to discover how to help organisations to manage their innovation. 

Convergent and divergent, as well as analytical and synthetic, creativity techniques may be combined. New creativity techniques are generated to find winning concepts for products and services.

Former research

Aguilà and MonguetThe years I worked with Josep Aguilà were so great. Einstein said that imagination is more important than knowledge, and Aguilà was one of the first to alert that innovation had become the key driver for succes in business. Business models must evolve according to the pace imposed by globalization and acceleration of knowledge. In this context, focused creativity and innovation is an essential capacity that companies have to develop. So the practice of innovation inside the company is a priority, and it has a particular format in each organization.
