Capgemini recognized as a ‘Leader’ in Innovation Strategy Consulting by ALM Intelligence

Publish date:

For the very first time, Capgemini has been ranked as a Leader and game-changer in the Innovation Strategy consulting space, as per the latest 2018 report from ALM Intelligence Vanguard securing our position as Leader, while contending with some of the leading consulting providers.

“Among the leaders, Capgemini stands apart by housing pure play innovation strategist Fahrenheit 212 and extensive technology engineering resources under one roof. The firm’s Applied Innovation Exchanges are particularly effective for simultaneously facilitating the delivery of real market outcomes to clients and inculcating best practices. Dovetailing with its view of the centrality of experience to effective business models, Capgemini’s acquisition of LiquidHub contributes additional execution capabilities.” Nathan Simon – Senior Director, Management Consulting Research, ALM Intelligence.

We are very pleased to announce that in addition to emerging as a Leader, we have also made significant improvement from last year in the following categories: Depth (moving from 14th to 6th position), Breadth (maintaining 5th place), and Client impact (moving from 11th to 4th place). Thus, we could very well be counted amongst the Top five innovation strategy consulting firms worldwide. In the report, we have also been benchmarked as “Very Strong” in Project Management and “Strong” in the areas of External Market Insight, Strategy and Operating System, and Client Capability Development.

Innovation Strategy Consulting Providers

In the best-in-class provider category, our network of Applied Innovation Exchanges together with our in-house and affiliated technology and engineering resources, are unparalleled for helping clients to make big bets and engage with external partners to execute them.

The report also mentions how we have gone the extra mile to demonstrate a very strong Approach, Practice Structure and Service Delivery Model in our day-to-day activities.

Approach: Our applied innovation approach embodies the view that companies need a new way to learn about, experiment with and scale innovation opportunities. We believe the answer is to develop innovation centers in technology hubs, but the essential point is not the centers themselves but rather their role in fostering engagement with ecosystems, innovative cultures, and effective governance and process management aligned to broader business strategies.

Practice Structure: We pull our resources from our technology and digital transformation practices, as well as design capabilities obtained via the acquisitions of innovation strategy provider Fahrenheit 212, and user-centered design and strategy firm Idean.

Service Delivery Model: At the heart of our service delivery is a network of Applied Innovation Exchanges that showcase our innovation center concept. The exchanges serve dual roles as a locus for organizing our ecosystem of starters, accelerators, incubators, strategic technology and business partners and a physical location at which to engage clients in developing new innovations and adopting best practices.

Our feature in the ALM Intelligence Vanguard report holds special significance as it proves our relative ability to create impact for our clients through our depth of expertise and ability to deploy it across a range of engagement models. We have been considered capable of Innovation Strategy Consulting based on an evaluation conducted as per a consistent set of criteria. Some of these are Consulting approach, Consulting organization, Consulting service delivery model, Client pain points and needs assessments and Future development.
