Build Innovation Capability

Unleash your potential by embedding innovation to the core of your organization

For many companies, there is a wide gap between the aspirations of executives to innovate and the ability to execute, resulting in disappointment, frustration, and a lack of commitment and further investment in innovation. What sets successful companies apart is that they all have a world-class innovation capability, a culture, and a strategy that drives innovation.

Systemic Approach to Innovation.

Getting the C-suite on board.

We engage leadership in creating a vision of success and set goals and expectations for innovation. To broaden the impact of innovation, executives need to understand the implications of their aspirations on the capabilities and the required organizational capacity for innovation. We work with executives and middle managers to empower them to guide and support their teams on innovation initiatives.

Supporting innovation teams.

Every stage in our approach is supported by a comprehensive compendium of easy-to-understand methods, tools, and techniques facilitated by Strategos consultants. Introductions, workbooks, exercises, and examples are all available for teams to work with and develop their skills. We have supported dozens of companies and their innovation teams in various industries who have adopted our approach to innovation and continue to benefit from the results.

Establishing a culture of innovation.

Creating a culture of innovation requires shared values that foster creativity, risk-taking, and collaboration. Our methods promote diverse thinking and new behaviors because they help people generate new perspectives and ideas. To achieve this, we eliminate barriers that hinder innovation, such as restrictive policies and processes, while enhancing strengths like employee skills and talents. We develop innovation leaders who can challenge conventions and inspire and support their teams in pursuing breakthroughs. By combining these elements, we help our clients create an environment that cultivates innovation and unlocks the true potential of the company.
