27 Tools to Accelerate Your Company's Speed of Innovation

In an era of rapid technology change and business model disruption that will see more than 50% of today’s S&P500 find itself replaced in 10 years time, companies that learn the fastest, win.

To beat the odds, you need to increase your company's speed of innovation.

There are countless tools we use with our corporate innovation clients to build fast, learn fast and measure fast in order to help them determine what will ‘wow’ customers enough to extend or generate new lines of revenue and remain a competitive force well into the future.

There are no silver bullets when it comes to innovation. No one methodology or approach will ever guarantee success, particularly if you're exploring disruptive innovation which by nature is fraught with uncertainty and an experimentation that often appears more akin to chaos than structure, but by accelerating our corporate innovation efforts we can figure out what works for us, take many more bets in a shorter amount of time and start to generate some tangible results that we can then use to build a case for further product development and eventual commercialisation.
