Innovation

Innovation is no longer just for a select group of organisations. In an era of rapid technological and market change, organisations of all sizes in virtually every industry need to increase their capacity to innovate.

This fundamental need is putting pressure on Governments and organisations to find the best ways to support, manage and measure innovation so that it can deliver economic and societal benefits.

In light of this, while R&D departments still have an important role, organisations are opening up the innovation process earlier to a broader set of stakeholders both inside and outside the organisation. This can have a range of benefits from improving strategic alignment to accessing fresh ideas and critical talent, to failing faster and getting new innovations to market sooner. This new approach is changing organisational cultures and early customer engagement is playing a crucial role.
