As if our post and announcement on Collaborative Intelligence earlier today wasn’t exciting enough, we’ve got more big news!

Today we announced our acquisition of LUMA Institute, further strengthening our position as a leader in collaboration, as we introduce collaborative intelligence, a new systematic approach that connects teams to unlock their genius, taking insights and ideas from possibility to reality.

You likely already know LUMA. But if you don’t, LUMA has been equipping people to be collaborative problem solvers through its learning experiences, digital resources, certification programs, and more. They are the creators of the LUMA System of Innovation, a modular and adaptive collection of design methods that creates a common language for collaboration.

LUMA is joining forces with MURAL to support the launch of the MURAL Collaboration Design Institute™ in late 2022, where the discipline of collaboration design will be taught and learned through self-service curriculum, cohort-based learning, certifications, and communities. We’re really excited about our future together—this is the beginning of something great.

We’re passing the mic to a few of our friends from the team to introduce themselves and say hello! 

Give a warm welcome to our friends at LUMA!

    LUMAAAAAAA!!!! 🎉

    When I started at MURAL in 2020 I had no idea what design thinking was and my manager sent me the LUMA book. Fast forward and when @ryannee first started here, I got to be his MURAL buddy. Needless to say I got some insider tips and fell in love with Luma even more!

    So happy to have you all here and see some names that I'll be working with soon on shared accounts. Exciting stuff!!!

    Welcome LUMA team!

    I am so ridiculously excited about this that I can barely speak. LUMA was my gateway to a massive career change, a totally new way of working, and brought me to a place I love. I'm so happy to be able to call you all colleagues, and looking forward to what we can do together.
