Ideas are the currency of the digital age. Yet, in large organisations, the time talented staff have to slow down, research, think and be creative is increasingly finite.
To establish where to allocate your R&D investment and where the most successful value streams may be found, you sometimes need the help of an objective 3rd party.
By dedicating a specific time and space to an outcomes-focused innovation lab you will inject fresh outlooks, instill fresh philosophies, create valuable hypotheses and bring employees on the journey with you. By taking the time to isolate your existing business challenges, which could, in turn, insulate your organisation from ongoing disruption.
Your business might call them hubs, incubators and accelerators...but whatever terminology you use, one thing is clear. We need to challenge engrained thinking and establish the opportunity landscape.
We won't do this by telling your team what they already know, or by foisting generic thinking onto the complexities of your organisation, no. We arrange our innovation labs to benefit everyone's 'listening ears'.
Our innovation labs are chaired under the watchful eye of our principal consultants, who have anything from 15-25 years experience of in running innovation spikes, tactical projects and large-scale programmes of work... So they know how to drive change.
Our methods have worked to prominent effect in health and finance, where pre-existing mental models and rigid regulated frameworks can sometimes stifle the 'art of the possible. However, we set up innovation labs and processes to focus on long-term, ambitious, but ultimately achievable outcomes and the incremental steps to get there.
Far from being pure ‘innovation theatre’, we set you up with a licence to operate that brings the long term ever closer to your day-to-day business reality.
We work with some of the biggest names in the UK across financial services and digital health. They trust us to define their digital roadmap in partnership and create growth strategies that work. Find out more.
