The Case for Breakthrough Innovation

Your CEO / MD / President asks, “How do I create the conditions in the firm so that innovation thrives and that we achieve a credible return on innovation investments as a leader among peers?”

The Chief Technology Officer or Head of Corporate Innovation asks, “How can I efficiently and effectively transform our new offerings, harness new technologies and have confidence in the innovation pipeline?”

The Head of the Innovation Centre wants to showcase their raison d’être, demonstrate business impact to the business unit heads and make the company more receptive to breakthrough innovation concepts.

The R&D Leader needs to make sure the technology development and partnerships are firmly connected to the product pipeline and show business impact to the top line.

Outside of innovation, the Head of Business Development wants assurance that customer needs are being satisfied on time.
