A simple 3-step process to design the ideal Innovation Strategy to pursue your organizational goals

The plan


We don’t use traditional consulting approaches: instead, we apply proven design thinking principles and other modern proven frameworks of innovation management. This approach can be used for both existing and new innovation programs. From in-house accelerators to external design sprints, the goal is to improve and accelerate the rollout of innovation programs.

During the different strategic innovation sessions, we use Innovation Frameworks to capture insights and structure the discussions. Every session will be guided by experienced innovation strategists.

We use various successful innovation cases to learn from different organizations and perspectives of best case examples, in- and outside your industry.

“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”.
