Strategic Innovation Services

Strategic planning and Innovation don’t happen by accident, they require careful thought, planning, and execution to bring value to your organization. Often organizations hold “strategic planning” sessions annually to align the team heading into a new year of challenges, but without dedicated resources, aligned communications, and a commitment to measuring the outputs of the plan those annual efforts become little more than team building gatherings.

Succeed Sooner has experience across a broad spectrum of industries and organizations in building strategic innovation into the culture and fabric of your organization. We work with you to assess your current organizational capabilities, help you define an ongoing managed approach to strategic alignment and innovation, and then support the implementation and execution of your new approach including ongoing maintenance and improvement of your strategic innovation program. Our work includes:

  • Ideation and idea management programs
  • Integrated strategic planning and execution programs
  • Innovation portfolio planning and execution programs
  • Strategic alignment and growth planning programs
  • Product and service design and development programs
  • Implementation of organizational Innovation Design programs

Our approach brings rigor and structure to the strategic innovation process and creates measurable outputs that enable future decisions and growth in your organization. Our engagements aren’t focused on “consulting outputs” and whitepapers, but rather are focused on delivering outcomes in your business, and we structure our engagements to suit the specific needs and capacity of your organization and leadership team.

Our innovation framework is based on leading research layered with years of real world experience. We can adapt and tailor our framework to suit the culture of your organization and support you through the implementation of your new innovation practice. Our approach is designed to transfer knowledge, experience, and skills to your team throughout the process so that when we are finished you are ready to scale and grow without our involvement.

Technology Development and Implementation Services

Implementation or development of new technologies requires strong project fundamentals, a strong understanding of the business challenges to be solves (jobs to be done), and a common view of the approach to implementation.

Our programs have included:

  • Vendor and product selection
  • Software development and integration

  • Systems development and integration

Our program approach includes assessment of your current challenges, development of solutions and solution approaches, vendor selection and contract management, system integration and delivery, and program and project management services throughout the implementation. Every step of the way you will have clear line of sight as to project progress, support for issue resolution, and overall management of your project success.
