The role of today's Innovation Consultancies

Innovation consultancies aim to help companies building new mindsets that are able to nourish a cultural shift and promote growth. Bringing new technologies and innovative frameworks into large corporations will most likely keep them alive in the fast-paced and ever-changing environment of today.

Services might include a set of possible options, depending on the needs and requirements of each client. They range from co-creating innovation strategies and governance models, designing new business model, performing qualitative user research studies that explore current and future customer needs, as well as prototyping and testing new products or services. Consultancies can also train top management and employees in different methodologies that can be applied for sustainable growth and build in-house innovation capabilities.
