Not enough hours in the day to start a new project?
Projects on QUBE are delivering up to to 4 times faster & saving around 50-65% effort compared to traditional projects.
No time to learn new things?
On QUBE you will learn a vast array of practical tools to use in every day life while simultaneously delivering your project. Its called “learn & do” ware.
Too busy to think of working differently?
Imagine a world with no travel, no meetings to arrange, no papers to produce. On QUBE we have regular drumbeats, we keep everything we do on QUBE so there is only one version of the truth, we don’t need to email, prepare agendas, version control documents, write up workshop outcomes. We just get on with the job. And we do it in a fair & open way that encourages all members of the team to participate equally and in a way that encourages creative problem solving.
Stuck on solutions?
QUBE has an innovation model that helps you develop new ideas. It helps you work out why you are stuck, how you can fix it, what will give you the most benefit for least effort. You can even do a business case in 30 minutes.
Wonder why some of your stakeholders don’t always agree with your approach?
QUBE encourages early engagement with stakeholders in the collaborative development of ideas to ensure the end solution is what’s needed. And all this can be done without the need for big workshops or travel. We just invite our stakeholders to join us for a short workshop in our virtual environment.
QUBE is now being used across a number of areas in the NHS in Scotland to support the innovation landscape. Due to the growing number of users of QUBE, Pentacle have sponsored QUBEx a virtual TEDx type event supporting innovation in health. These events are partnered by DHI, the NHS innovation leads and Scottish Enterprise
