Strategic Innovation

We address two important and interrelated innovation challenges through our strategic innovation services: how to structure innovation programs and conduct successful front-end projects. We focus on developing your innovation strategy, process, and capabilities, which ensure your successful innovation journey with our team as your guide.

Capabilities Development

We build our clients' innovation capability and capacity through an evaluation of their innovation environment. We offer:

  • Strategic assessment. We ensure executive teams gain insight into their organization’s perceptions and practices by assessing the five fundamental elements of innovation: strategy, structure, resources, culture and people, and provide insight for actions to improve innovation capacity.
  • Strategy development. We link clients' current capabilities and business goals to emerging opportunities, customer needs, future trends, and market adjacencies.
  • Process development. We implement a proven innovation process and tools or evaluate and improve existing innovation tools and processes.
  • Capabilities development. We build and train innovation teams, design innovation structures, and governance models and identify and remove cultural barriers.

Improving the Success Rate in Front-End Projects

Our consultants have led dozens of successful front-end innovation projects in a number of industries, resulting in both incremental and disruptive new products and services.  We provide innovative solutions at any step in your front end journey, from expert foresighting and customer needs discovery to idea generation, open innovation and concept validation.  We offer our strategic innovation services to our clients in three delivery models:  we lead innovation efforts for you, partner in the effort with you or train your innovation team.
