An innovation coach inspires, supports and coaches teams to help innovation grow in the organization

Coaching can either be done on the execution of projects or on the executive level to define strategies.

Program overview

Embed innovation into your organization.

Our approach to innovation coaching. 

Methodologies such as design thinking, lean method, and service design require a shift in mindset. By applying creative coaching techniques, our innovation coaches challenge people to think differently and guarantee that projects are tackled by the customer’s needs rather than from the organization’s perspective.

Additionally, our innovation coaches guide teams towards business result by teaching them skills such as ideation, concept development, business modeling, and pitching. This can either be done through participatory workshops or by means of individual coaching on projects.

We build capabilities, not dependencies. At the end of the journey, teams are equipped with entrepreneurial skills and are able to apply a customer-centric way-of-working, without depending on us.

Based on the specific needs, our innovation coaches can create a tailored playbook to ensure successful continuation. This allows organizations to stay close to their customer while delivering quick results.

  • Building capabilities: you have a great team and you want to optimize their innovation capabilities.
  • Coaching for business results: you have an innovative product/service in mind and you need guidance in the further execution, experimentation, validation and/or market launch.
  • External challenger: you have a team with an innovation coach and you want to raise the bar by bringing in an external challenger.
