Our products

Think Tank

To promote active idea generation within our company, each of our locations features an idea board to which all employees are welcome to add their wishes and ways of approaching problems. These additions are continually being evaluated and taken further by an internal Think Tank team.

There is also an annual Think Tank Camp in Mallorca. This event offers plenty of time and an inspiring setting to generate the needed creativity. Every employee can apply for the three-day camp and, as part of an interdisciplinary team, hone their own – as well as totally new – ideas.

Methodology lets you be creative and innovative. The most important thing is to start by suppressing the urge to come up with “solutions.” You need to leave room for creativity and new ideas at first, and only start thinking about solutions later.

Christian PfistererProduct Owner

We’re always on the hunt for innovative solutions that will help our customers progress. In addition to our customers, we consider our employees to be valuable creative forces for the improvement of our services.

maihiro can also think outside the box. Simply adopting a different way of thinking, a different methodology, was extremely exciting as we encouraged the topic of innovation at maihiro. I truly see a lot of potential in this area.

Sebastian HaßlbeckSenior Consultant CRM

Thinking in new ways and assuming a variety of roles by opening our minds to new ideas, insisting on seeing our company’s shortcomings clearly, and not letting ourselves become set in ways of outdated thinking.
