Our Story

Randomised Coffee Trials

Spark Collaboration was built on the success of Randomised Coffee Trials (RCTs), a manual process co-designed in 2012 by Jon Kingsbury and Michael Soto at Nesta, the UK innovation foundation. RCTs pair staff with a new coworker from across the company on a fixed interval (weekly, monthly etc) to get to know each other over coffee and learn about what projects they are working on.  Nesta’s experience with RCTs was documented in the ‘Institutionalising Serendipity’ blog series and received widespread attention, being adopted by a range of organizations, including UK government bodies, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the International Federation for the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC).

How Spark Works

Join. Connect. Meet Up.

Behind the scenes, the Spark Collaboration platform matches people face-to-face for real time social interactions. By meeting over coffee, lunch or video, people can create real social connections that can help them be more innovative, connected, and ultimately more productive. Spark setup is quick and easy, and allows your organization to create campaigns that reflect your unique goals.

Just a few simple steps will get you started:

  1. Decide who should meet. Get one department connected with another department, client, or vendor.
  2. Set the Specifics. Decide start and end dates, establish frequency of meet ups, and set custom rules with your own criteria. Then monitor metrics and participation.
  3. Get Engaged. Log in to see current and upcoming meetups and update profiles. Watch as morale, attendance and inspiration bloom in the workplace.
