We deliver time to market, not Powerpoint slides.
Innovation is the change you bring to the market.
Innovation is not measured by the number of patents or the volume of R&D expenses.
It’s about how much you change the market. And in many ways, we believe that a restaurant chain can be more innovative than a pharmaceutical lab.
Although we do love technology and recognize its transformative power, we do not see it as THE answer. Simply a tool amongst many.
Culture eats strategy for breakfast? You bet!
Always start with your business culture.
Your culture has its own limits and its own strengths. Sometimes these strengths have to be reminded to you (sometimes they have to be rebuilt).
But most of the time, we’re confident your culture is not the same as at Apple in 2007, or Toyota in the 1970s…
Thinking you could apply the same innovation “book of the month” recipe is a rookie mistake that we have stopped doing around 2007.
Innovation buzzwords on the surface? Critical thinking under the hood!
INTRAPRENEURSHIP & CORPORATE INCUBATION
Most of these cookie-cutter programs have devolved in PR campaigns. But if you can let go of the hype, and fine-tune your approach around strategic goals, they still can be very effective!
Digital is over. If you’re still speaking about digital transformation, stop trying to apply the best practices from 2007. Leapfrog where technology will be!
BUSINESS MODEL INNOVATION
In the market, most successful innovations are not about patents but about reshaping the rules of customer engagement. Entire industries are still missing out on this simple reality.
WOMEN LEADERSHIP & MENTORING
Mentoring women and facilitating their access to top-level positions is not about gender-washing. It’s a strategic move to open up your business perspectives and boost your business culture!
Taking risks, embracing failure, learning by doing, startup mindset, customer-centric and agility… What about letting go of these generic injunctions and get real transformation done?
EXECUTIVE TRAININGS & KEYNOTES
We design and deliver many executive trainings and keynotes every year. Never on-the-shelf; always taylor-made and fresh!
+10 Years of track-record with industry leaders.
We speak fluently many markets and many industries.
We have copiloted and delivered market and culture changes in sectors ranging from pharmaceuticals and aerospace to retail and luxury.
We are Innovation Copilots…
