We are in the midst of a significant transformation:
#1 = Explosion of Innovation = Speed + Frequency + Convergence
#2 = Disruptive Innovation
Advanced Analytics + Computing
Advanced Virtual Reality
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Internet of Things (IoT)
#3 = Platforms + Ecosystems = Digital Economy
And so much more - all at the same time.
So, what’s broken?
The real challenge lies within the complexities involved and the gaps between the Acceleration + Application + Adoption of Innovation.
The More Disruptive the Innovation = The More Complex the Adoption
Our "virtual" Problem Incubator is designed, structured and dedicated to helping the C-Suite and their organizations fix strategic business problems. We are tackling either new problems or existing problems in a new and unique way.
Through the Acceleration + Application + Adoption of Innovation.
As Fixers - we prototype one strategic business problem at a time - with full operational responsibility and financial accountability.
#1 - Prove which strategic business problem(s) need to be fixed - that senior executives need to and will invest in fixing - which can be fixed in part/in whole by the specific innovation that was submitted to the incubator.
#2 - Fix the problem - operationally.
#3 - Secure the return - financially.
The Buyers + Sellers + Investors of Innovation All Win In This Equation.
