11 Individual Innovator Profiles Based on

4 Orientations and 4 Personal Styles

TIPS brings order and insight into the messy, chaotic, people-side of business and innovation. We do this by distinguishing 11 different profiles based on different thinking styles, work styles, and life styles that people have. Then outlining how they can best be utilized to maximize progress.

With the help of a personality test that checks on the four TIPS base orientations (Theories, Ideas, People, Systems), four TIPS styles (Thinking, Working, Interacting, Life), and a related set of TIPS dimension manifestations, we distinguish 11 TIPS Innovation Profiles that capture the fundamental cognitive preferences and innovation styles of different people.

TIPS is based on a fundamental insight: 

Everyone can contribute to the business and innovation efforts of a firm, albeit in very different ways, based on one’s preferred thinking style and work style.
