Innovation research can focus too much on evaluation. The problem with this is that evaluation alone can be rather stifling: the emphasis is on qualification and progressing instead of OPTIMISING and there is little focus on feeding the tunnel with the RIGHT ideas. Being too quick to kill ideas, most innovation research too easily becomes report-card research.

Most innovation funnels are crowded with too many small ideas. We think differently. We work across the entire innovation process to identify winning ideas earlier, and maximise their potential.
