Our Principles

Innovation without results is useless

Without fresh answers, innovation is a waste of your resources. We gear our efforts to using the power of innovation to give you new solutions.

Collective intelligence has the power to find new answers

Someone, somewhere in your organisation has the key to your growth and differentiation challenges. Our tools and technology provoke new discussions and enable you to gain new perspectives.

Your people’s hidden potential can solve most of your business problems

You are sitting on huge potential: the experience, knowledge and ideas of your people and stakeholders. Learn how to unleash and make use of that latent potential.

Engagement is the fuel to sustain value creation

Getting that extra mile beyond the job description from your people is one of the great battles of our days. Involve and motivate your people to contribute to everyday differentiation.

What is your level of ambition?

What do you want to change in your organisation?

Understanding your ambitions helps you materialise a migration path, set your expectations and allocate resources more rationally.

Exago has assisted clients in solving very specific requests through carefully crafted initiatives that tackle business challenges innovatively, corporate programmes that develop new processes and functions and capability building that delivers long lasting competencies.

Our Framework

Leadership and purpose

define the innovation objectives that guide your entire effort and develop your leadership’s agenda

  • Innovation diagnostic
    focus on understanding the innovation maturity of your organisation and identifying the main blockages and levers to further success.
  • Innovation strategic architecture
    Establish a set of work dimensions and resources, as well as a roadmap, in a collaborative exercise where we align your innovation strategy with your corporate strategy.
  • Leadership agenda
    Engage your leadership team around your innovation agenda and make sure you have an assertive communication plan to rally the whole organisation around the jobs-to-be-done.
  • Purpose/jobs-to-be-done
    We assist you in defining the higher purpose of your innovation effort and identifying the jobs-to-be-done through innovation (i.e. translating relevant business challenges into innovation challenges).


Tools, processes and technologies

  • Incentives and recognition plan
    Exago facilitates designing the right set of incentives and recognition elements to promote the desired organisational contributions and behaviours.
  • Metrics definition and tracking
    We define together your performance metrics and make sure you have the ability to measure them.

Governance and capability

is about sustaining innovation over time with organisational and competency-building structures.

  • Governance design (roles and responsibilities)
    Outline your innovation and business roles and responsibilities.
  • Innovation Sigma model and platform
    We have developed a comprehensive innovation competency-building system that creates a set of tools, common framework, and evolving proficiency model, which replicate the principles of Six Sigma as applied to innovation.
