Engaging your your customers and suppliers into value creation

Corporate or business unit strategy have been largely created “in-house”, based on the company resources and its competitive position, paying little or no interest to external stakeholders – customers, suppliers, partners or experts.

Yet, in the recent years increasing attention has been paid to these extremely valuable resources, to understand trends and customer preferences, and to build innovative solutions that exceeds one company’s capabilities. Open innovation has been getting more and more attention from entrepreneurs, SMEs, corporations, but also governments and other public sector organisations.

Our open innovation practice

Part of our innovation management support or as stand alone missions, we help companies create open innovation ecosystems to facilitate creative and competence synergies to accelerate innovation.

Open innovation activities

The resulting activities range from as little as facilitating design sprints or hackathons involving external stakeholders, to building systems and processes for open innovation.
