Innovation program design.

We co-design strategic masterplans for corporate innovation programs.

Are innovation initiatives scattered in your organization, often overlapping or aiming at different goals? Are resources not aligned with the expected impact? Is there unclarity on who is taking ownership of different innovation initiatives?

The goal of the innovation program design is to give an answer to innovation strategy challenges, by co-creating a structured innovation process that is tailored to your organization. We collaborate in the design and roll-out of this new processes, with the aim of achieving your innovation strategic goals. During this process, we use case examples and our experience and learnings in the innovation 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”.
