CASE STUDIES

Background:

Manulife saught to increase employee engagement in APAC and cultivate a culture of innovation and experimentation. They were also looking to future-proof their business and come up with their next generation of insurance products.

Approach:

Brinc worked closely with APAC leadership to identify problem statements around the business that would benefit from a rethink. 

The team hosted immersive and interactive ideation sprints where we crowdsourced innovative ideas from a diverse range of employees. The team then worked closely with Manulife’s innovation team to bring these ideas to market.

Brinc held ideation sprints across Hong Kong and Singapore where we engaged more than 750 employees who generated 100+ innovative ideas.

These resulted in bringing 4 new proof of concepts to market with numerous ideas added to the product backlog.
