Innovation is open-ended, open-minded and iterative. Idea generation is the process of creating, developing and testing ideas. We use jam sessions (online collaboration events), design thinking and analytics to help you generate great ideas.
Generating ideas is one thing; selecting the right ones to pursue and invest in is another. We work with you to create a horizons based, balanced innovation portfolio that enables simultaneous investment in short and long-term opportunities.
Driving value from innovation often requires working outside of business-as-usual. We enable effective execution by adapting the tools honed by startups to accelerate development, reduce risk and create market tested options for future growth.
Sustainable innovation requires repeatable processes, transparency, accountability and ownership . We help build your innovation capability by designing light touch structures, providing coaching and establishing metrics to ensure accountable governance of innovation.
Integrating innovation into your business strategy sows the seeds for future growth. By fostering an innovative culture leaders enable the organisation to create competitive advantage even in difficult times. We work with you to create clear goals and expectations that drive sustainable growth over the long term.
