Innovation Services

Truly innovative organisations are more agile, more successful and more profitable than the norm. Why are some organisations consistently more innovative than others? How can leaders help their people to become more creative and entrepreneurial in their approach to the business? What is stopping your organisation from implementing breakthrough ideas and how can you overcome these obstacles?

These are all questions which can be answered by us. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

Our approach to innovation is based on the following five areas:
  • Innovation strategy;
  • Idea generation;
  • Selection;
  • Implementation; and
  • Organisation.
Do you want your competitors to put you out of business?

An odd question perhaps, but that is what they are trying to do. All organisations should be innovating, whether it is new products or services, or business processes. Without innovation, at best, your organisation will stagnate. At worst, it will cease to exist.

Research conducted in 2014 by the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills has identified that 55% of small businesses wish to grow through developing and launching new products or services, but only 37% think that their business is strong at this activity.
We undertake various degrees of innovation audit as an initial way to analyse your organisation’s current innovation practices. In addition to the audits, we are able to offer general and more specific innovation advice tailored to your requirements.

Benefits of innovation advice include:
  • An enhanced innovation capability;
  • Clarification as to where the organisation needs to focus to maximise success;
  • The embedding of innovation in the company’s processes;
  • The identification of barriers to innovation;
  • A fostering of innovation in the organisation’s culture;
  • An alignment of the organisation in common purpose and action.

An audit will enable you to significantly improve the culture and process of innovation within your business. It enables you to unlock the creative talents of your people and to build an innovative, entrepreneurial organisation that welcomes and initiates change.
“Most of us understand that innovation is enormously important. It’s the only insurance against irrelevance. It’s the only guarantee of long-term customer loyalty. It’s the only strategy for out-performing a dismal economy.”

Gary Hamel
