This approach captures collective knowledge within your organization and ensures accurate, fact-based reporting at the aggregated portfolio level.
Innovation Organizational Design
Innovation organization design is an important component of an effective innovation function, and we can help you maximize your innovation power based on our experience of establishing and optimizing organizational structures. We help organizations to understand the roles and responsibilities that must be established, and to empower teams and individuals with appropriate skills and training. We also ensure that the necessary forums are running regularly and effectively. We regularly support key stakeholders in building consensus around critical questions such as:
- Who owns your product strategy?
- How are gate review decisions made and resources allocated?
- What is the scope of the Project Manager’s role?
Change Management + Communications
Proper communications and change management practices are integral to the successful deployment and embedding of meaningful change.
We incorporate best practices and first-hand experience to create a tailored program to support your broader transformation objectives.
Many companies are realizing the benefits of a more collaborative approach to innovation. Connecting internally and externally helps bring innovations to market faster, often at less cost than through traditional practices.
We can help integrate Open Innovation (OI) principles into your existing processes, advise how to establish the all-important cultural aspects, and guide on the types of systems and tools best support this approach. This includes (but is not limited to):
- Assessment of OI maturity and readiness, as well as facilitating cultural change process.
- Leveraging cross-functional collaborations (to remove silo behaviors).
- Structuring specific OI activities (i.e. Collaboration Platforms, Co-Creation, Crowdsourcing, IP licensing etc).
