blackswan Innovation

blackswan Innovation enhances your current innovation capability. blackswan Innovation delivers rapidly verifiable breakthrough solutions for significant future-proofed business value that is enhanced by appropriate knowledge transfer.

Do you have an Innovation strategy? Are your competitors talking about you? Are you getting the right level of ideas? Do you know how to identify the right idea? Do you have a business that embraces innovation? Does your innovation strategy match the VOC (Voice of the Customer) with the VOS (Voice of the System)? Can you get your innovation programmes across the valley of death from Ideation to Commercialisation? At blackswan, we see Innovation as much more than an add-on or a programme. In the blackswan world innovation is described as a commercially successful step change advance (nothing to do with ‘optimisation’).

How does your business benefit:

We work with companies in every industry to develop strategies that address the following five challenges:

  1. Make innovation an integrated part of the overall corporate strategy,
  2. Building strong systematic  innovation culture and supporting process,
  3. Create a first mover innovation advantage or a very fast and smart follower strategy,
  4. Reduce the innovation failure rate by matching Voice of the Customer with the Voice of the System,
  5. Increase revenue from known and unknown customers.
