Innovation is not a random creative act. In a large company it must occur systematically, successfully, economically, over and over again. And not just for the little innovations, it must be done for the big blockbusters too. Especially the blockbusters.

This will not happen by chance. It requires strong creative leadership, a powerful set of processes, and the right support technology. Innovation by design. By investment, by governance, and by good creative management and leadership.



Strong Leadership – Creative, focussed and well-informed management to select the best arenas to invest. The right level of governance, to prioritize and direct investment, but not to stifle the very essence of innovation.

The Right Processes – Big, bold and broad. Global scale. Not just products. Manage the range of processes across all streams of innovation. From idea, right through to banking the value.

  • Big: Global scale. Consistent, manageable, while accommodating individual business unit needs.
  • Bold: Encouraging and accelerating the best innovations. Disrupt or be disrupted?
  • Broad: The whole spectrum of innovation – the product ecosystem, business model and processes, services and media to connect with the market

Support Technology – Exploit the latest collaborative tools to dramatically enhance your process capability.
