How we do it
A typical consulting project in this area starts with an assessment of innovation capabilities of a company and an in-depth conversation and information exchange with an innovation expert during which he assesses the state of a start-up or an organization and identifies its needs. After that, a team of innovation experts designs a solution and identifies the strategic innovation priorities formulated to satisfy client's needs.
The final stage of a project is the implementation of the action plan together with the client team, monitoring the progress, controlling the intermediate results and assisting the client in the decision-making.
