Innovation program design.

We co-design strategic masterplans for corporate innovation programs.

About

Innovation strategy for enterprises.

Are innovation initiatives scattered haphazardly through your organization, duplicating work or chasing opposite goals? Are your resources out-of-step with the impact they should make? Is it unclear who takes ownership of different innovation initiatives?

The goal of innovation program design is to find answers to innovation strategy challenges by co-creating a structured innovation process tailored to your organization. We collaborate on the design and roll-out new processes to achieve your strategic innovation goals. We draw on case studies from our experience and the lessons of process design to make your innovation process a success.

“We finished an accelerator program in 6 countries. With this process, we see plenty of opportunities to take the very pragmatic projects they put on the table and help them to push them through in a very structured manner but also forcing them to think in a different way.”
Carlos Espina, Senior Vice President, LafargeHolcim

Program overview

A 3-step process to design your ideal innovation strategy.

We don’t use traditional consulting approaches. Instead, we apply proven design thinking principles and other modern frameworks of innovation management. Both new and existing innovation programs can benefit from these strategies. From in-house accelerators to external design sprints, our goal is to improve and accelerate the rollout of innovation programs.

During strategic innovation sessions, we use innovation frameworks to structure the discussions and to capture insights. Experienced innovation strategists guide every session.

We examine a variety of successful innovation cases to learn from the lessons and perspectives of different organizations inside and outside your industry.
