We work with clients who…

  • are only innovative when your customers ask you to be
  • concerned you can’t see what your R&D team is achieving
  • are kept awake at night by fear of failure and risks to your business
  • are focused so much on today that plans for tomorrow are overwhelmed
  • are not confident enough to invite partners into your business (and definitely not competitors)

hgkc have helped us invent a whole new way to manage and communicate about our innovation projects – BAU, “the pond”, Blue-sky, horizons, Game Plans and RACI techniques have enabled us to focus on the key projects and direction for our innovation at TasteTech.

Pivot to the Future - Omar Abbosh et al

Date: 22 Apr 2020 16:00

Pivot to the Future sets out what it takes to succeed in a world changed by technology based disruption and introduces the concept of a 'wise pivot' - a replicable strategy for harnessing disruption to survive. Research conducted by Accenture concluded that disruption is both inevitable and continual in every sector. So whatever business you are in, you will have to think about how you will adapt to emerging technologies and new markets to bridge the gap between what is technologically possible and how technologies are being used. Pivot to the Future, by Omar Abbosh, Paul Nunes and Larry Downes, makes a powerful case that successful innovation is a long-term game that requires constant pivots to evolve and change.
