Applied Innovation Roadmap

4-week engagement to develop an Innovation Horizon-based roadmap for a specific industry sector.

Incremental innovation can better business performance, but rarely changes the game. To go beyond the ordinary, enterprises must balance their lower-risk innovation activities with visionary innovation projects that offer the potential to not only change the game but disrupt it for good.

Expanding your horizons

The Applied Innovation Roadmap delivers a roadmap for guide strategic innovation portfolio management. A 4-week engagement harnesses our proprietary framework to map and ideate a balanced innovation portfolio in the context of potential innovation horizons for your organization.

Our Applied Innovation Exchange experts help enterprises uncover a breadth of innovation opportunities, from the incremental to the radical. Together with our clients, we interrogate these in the context of critical business factors so that opportunities can be prioritized, and investment and resources realistically allocated. The result is a risk-mitigated vision for a balanced innovation portfolio that equips organizations to operate effectively today while proactively planning for tomorrow.
