When leaders attempt to improve the levels of innovation in their organisations, they undertake a change process that is iterative and that affects many different elements of their organisation. The strategy, the culture and the operations must change.

We have three offers to assist leaders with this transformation.

Individual leader coaching: Here, we focus on helping a leader think through their organisational strategy, their innovation strategy, their portfolio of improvement projects and how their organisation nurtures knowledge accumulation.

Team coaching: Here, we focus more on improving dialogue between different organisational functions, expertise and areas. Team coaching focuses on joint sense-making and improving the way the organisation searches for and discovers options to improve its adaptiveness and resilience.

Inter-organisation coaching: Here, we focus on helping different organisations to search for and discover their innovation potential collectively. More attention is paid to joint search and discovery, unlocking synergy and overcoming shared constraints. We draw on our experience in strengthening innovation systems and building knowledge dissemination networks.

These three offers all draw on our experience of working with organisational change, promoting innovation, strategic competitiveness and resilient innovation systems.
