CREATING AN INNOVATION ECOSYSTEM IS EASY TO SAY, BUT WITHOUT A REAL CULTURE OF COLLABORATION, IT WILL FAIL!
Real collaboration requires new capabilities and ways of working across non-traditional boundaries.
We believe that organisations that will thrive will develop:
COLLABORATIVE INNOVATION ECOSYSTEMS
Sophisticated and diverse partnerships (internal and external) that yield high value for all stakeholders.
Individuals and teams with high levels of Emotional and Social Intelligence, able to work effectively with diversity to create innovative solutions.

Skepticism may be healthy to a point but if it serves to blind us to opportunities to[…]
We must innovate to stay globally competitive! We keep hearing this, so how do we change our stripes and become an innovation nation? In short, too many of us are still complacent, living in the shadow of the richer-times of the resources economy, lacking the will or knowledge to take the appropriate steps, waiting for[…]
HOW DO WE MAKE EVER MORE CONNECTED ECOSYSTEMS EVER MORE COLLABORATIVE TOO? We need to fundamentally challenge the fabric of our culture around innovation for both commercial and societal outcomes.
