Frequently Asked Questions

How are these different than other B2B playbooks out there?

These are not your average B2B idea books – our playbooks are curated for the B2B professionals in the interior design industry, with strategies built with your target market in mind. At ThinkLab, we have over 100+ years of combined A&D and manufacturer experience behind our methodology. We developed the tactical solutions in our playbooks through months of generative research, survey data, and focus groups with cross-functional teams of architects and designers, corporate real estate, manufacturers and end users.

Will this playbook help me if I am in sales/marketing/product development/biz dev?

Absolutely. Each organization/team is starting from a different place.  Our playbooks are structured to allow your business to personalize the journey that’s right for you with applicable takeaways for your sales, marketing, product development and business strategy teams. 

Can we share the playbooks within our organization?

Yes! In fact, we encourage it. Your playbook purchase includes an enterprise license so that you can use the content across your organization to support the success of your teams. 

How can we use the playbooks effectively?

The techniques found in the playbook are not meant to add more tasks to your to-do list – in fact, it’s just the opposite! The playbook provides a framework so that you can streamline, automate, and accelerate. A few implementation ideas we recommend: 

  • Starting team meetings with a playbook prompt
  • Distributing to team members for asynchronous application
  • Pairing with a workshop for an interactive sales meeting experience
  • Featuring an idea tip in your internal newsletter (Want it done-for-you? Our bundle package comes with 50 pre-written pieces of playbook newsletter content for your convenience)
Will I get any 1:1 support from ThinkLab?

The great thing about our playbooks is that you can use them DIY-style to provide done-for-you strategic support to your teams or you can opt to pair them with a curated, facilitated workshop for a guided experience.
