Let’s Celebrate the Breakthrough Innovators

Picture the scene.

You’ve just finished an uninspiring stage-gate meeting dealing with the latest new product launches.

The CTO has walked into your office with a bounce in her step. “Jim! I’ve got back from the board meeting and got an agreement for the new market products we’ve been wanting. The only thing is, they need it by the end of the year before we go to budget. So…I’m going to need it in two months.”

You smile. It’s what you’ve been lobbying for.

Groundbreaking solutions shift the needle on sluggish revenues and fight back at the digital startups that have been nibbling at your heels.

But you also feel that weight in your stomach and the responsibility it brings to deliver.


Why do we need a Breakthrough Innovator’s Blueprint?

I’m Rob Munro and I’ve guided countless technology leaders to redefine their innovation strategies and achieve remarkable success.

Many CTOs struggle with three main problems: aligning innovation with business goals, creating TRUE breakthrough potential, and proving the ROI of innovation initiatives.

I understand the barriers you face and I’ve created the Breakthrough Innovator’s Blueprint to navigate them.

Who is the Blueprint for?

Across the company, your stakeholders are driven by different and, possibly, conflicting needs.

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.
