Do you feel that your innovation programme is becoming too complex? That you are spending too much time picking the right software to support your initiative, instead of focusing on what your company really needs?
The challenge was set, the votes counted and the champions announced. And now, Exago has delivered the prizes to the Innovation Guru Award winners of 2017. We were proud to present the trophies to Via Varejo, Ageas and CTT, the three clients who especially stood out for their solid focus and resilience to innovate over the past year.
To help scale bold ideas to tackle the world’s big social, environmental and economic issues, the Unilever partnership with the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) is now calling on social enterprises to apply to TRANSFORM. To invite ideas and promote collaboration to further catalyse impact, they have chosen Exago’s open innovation software.
As companies fight to stay ahead of the innovation curve, the role of the Innovation Director is developing and growing in significance. Some have trained in the field with a high degree of specialisation, while others have fallen into the position from other areas and have moulded themselves to become the innovation leader of their company. Regardless, their goal is the same: to help propel and direct innovation within their organisation.
If you are introducing cost-cutting in your innovation agenda, your ultimate drive is to create a cost culture that sustains itself over time and is not forgotten three months after being announced by the leadership.
