IMPact™ - a proven Innovation Management Process
Build innovation into your organisation’s DNA with our IMPact™ System
Nobody needs to be convinced of the need for continuous innovation to stay competitive and transform how we add value for our customers and stakeholders. Delivering successful innovation continually, repeatedly, and reliably, however, requires an elusive alignment of a number of factors. Unless your organisation’s culture, systems, and management practice truly connect and enable innovation, then the result will be a series of invisible barriers which few ideas with real potential will survive. This is what our Innovation Management Process (IMPact™) is all about.
A proven systems-based approach to innovation management
IMPact™ is an integral part of smartcrowds® innovation management platform. The method has been developed through experience, ideas and advice from leading innovation practitioners creating innovative products and service with thousands of hours and hundreds of projects in every industry sector.
smartcrowds® IMPact™ system integrates 20+ years of real-world learning to deliver an end-to-end system that injects pace, momentum, and excitement around your organisation’s innovation efforts. IMPact™ effectively breaks down the blockages that stops the flow of good ideas through to successful implementation and the realisation of real value.
IMPact™ draws on systems theory and a deep understanding of key behavioural dimensions associated with successful innovation including resistance to change, managing risk, and organisational learning.
