Rob Munro – Innovation Consultant, Coach and Speaker

Hello and welcome.

You may have landed here because you are curious about the possibilities innovation can bring your organization.

The organization you are part of is likely to have one or more traits and needs.

  • You’re a High Growth SME – and need to reorganize to become more effective in deploying your precious resources or develop effective growth strategies.
  • You work in a Mid Size company, and are somewhat successful but need to refine you technology and innovation management systems to realise new opportunities and become more responsive.
  • The large enterprise you work in is inherently complex and it’s difficult to get things done. Moreover, innovation may be too incremental and you need to respond with more radical offers to customers. You need to create better innovation concepts and increase the win rate.
  • And in the large enterprise you need to correctly alight your R&D with business objectives as well as jump on the latest ideas in effective innovation management including Open Innovation and “digital disruption.”
  • Or in a national or regional government you need to develop innovation and high-value manufacturing policy to effectively deploy your funding.
