Launch of a global innovation initiative for a life sciences and materials company
A global corporate innovation initiative was launched by our client to generate ideas beyond the scope of its current business. Having selected an in-house team of innovation managers, it was recognised that the team would need innovation coaching and that hands-on support was required to ensure the successful implementation of the initiative.
We worked on-site with the client team for the first year of the initiative, during which we:
identified topics for guided innovation streams and facilitated related workshops
evaluated and refined ideas suggested by employees and identified during workshops
gave constructive feedback on individual ideas
delivered market and technology content to take selected ideas forward
coached project teams in the development of business plans
