Each client engagement is custom designed to meet the specific needs of the organization. We work closely with you to identify and clarify these needs early in the engagement process. We understand the relationship between innovation and strategy and we make sure the work we do with you is aligned appropriately. Innovation Engagements can include:
- The Innovation Audit
We have developed a comprehensive innovation audit that can assess where your company’s innovation efforts are today. From this we can outline a detailed plan and road map for moving forward and developing the capabilities that are best suited for your organization’s culture. The Innovation Audit provides a complete, clear, and accelerated path to transform your innovation practice.
- Innovation Portfolio Development
The purpose of an Innovation Portfolio is to manage the risk inherent in innovation while optimizing the results achieved by innovation investments. Our 5 Step Innovation Portfolio process enables you to consider a wide range of important issues related to each potential innovation investment, and to do so in a reasonable sequence.
- Innovation Metrics
Like everything that businesses do which involves the investment of capital and time, innovation has to be measured. We provide guidance and best practices that help you develop the specific measurements to quantify the impact of your innovation initiatives.
