Business Strategy 

Drive Strategic Growth Through Innovation

get in touch

We work with organizations to develop innovation strategies that enable improvement and growth in revenue, profit and business results.

For companies with corporate strategies dependent upon growth from innovation, this means translating high-level business objectives into specific innovation goals, roadmaps and capability-building in order to drive successful, tactical execution.

Our approach is holistic and actionable, combining the where (areas of business to innovate) with the what (innovation strategies) and the how (people, processes and technology) to build sustainable capabilities that deliver more predictable business and innovation results.

THINK DIFFERENT

We think beyond the limits of traditional business models to help companies compete in new ways and exploit opportunities to achieve profitable growth

Our focus is to help executives solve pressing business issues—not simply prepare plans. Our highly experienced teams work alongside clients to design actionable strategies and remain closely involved throughout implementation to achieve superior, tangible results.

The case for digital reinvention

Digital technology, despite its seeming ubiquity, has only begun to penetrate industries. As it continues its advance, the implications for revenues, profits, and opportunities will be dramatic.

As new markets emerge, profit pools shift, and digital technologies pervade more of everyday life, it’s easy to assume that the economy’s digitization is already far advanced. According to our latest research, however, the forces of digital have yet to become fully mainstream. On average, industries are less than 40 percent digitized, despite the relatively deep penetration of these technologies in media, retail, and high tech.

As digitization penetrates more fully, it will dampen revenue and profit growth for some, particularly the bottom quartile of companies, according to our research, while the top quartile captures disproportionate gains. Bold, tightly integrated digital strategies will be the biggest differentiator between companies that win and companies that don’t, and the biggest payouts will go to those that initiate digital disruptions. Fast-followers with operational excellence and superior organizational health won’t be far behind.

These findings emerged from a research effort to understand the nature, extent, and top-management implications of the progress of digitization. We tailored our efforts to examine its effects along multiple dimensions: products and services, marketing and distribution channels, business processes, supply chains, and new entrants at the ecosystem level (for details, see sidebar “About the research”). We sought to understand how economic performance will change as digitization continues its advance along these different dimensions. What are the best-performing companies doing in the face of rising pressure? Which approach is more important as digitization progresses: a great strategy with average execution or an average strategy with great execution?
