How can we help you set a higher standard in innovation?

The Innovation Navigator Program

It’s hard to know where you are going if you don’t know where you are.

Impact Innovation’s Innovation Navigator® program brings a whole organisation, division or team together with innovation at the centre. It enables teams to collectively paint the picture of where your innovation management system is today, and areas that need attention in the future to generate more value. Innovation Navigator® is underpinned by world’s best practice ISO Innovation Management Standards, specifically ISO 56002 Innovation Management System Standards.

Innovation Programs

Start innovation in your organisation.

Some organisations start innovation with a small-scale project, some take the plunge with a whole of organisation innovation program. Talk to us about getting the right stuff done over the critical first 12 months so you can build strong foundations and generate a return on your investment. 

Improve your existing innovation program.

Are you stuck with too many ideas and no outcomes? Innovation in isolation? A lack of vision around what the organisation is trying to achieve? We will work with you to assess and understand what action you need to boost your innovation program so you can focus on action that achieves impact.

Shift to a systematic approach.

Impact Innovation’s Innovation System Design enables organisations to align to a world’s best practice system approach to innovation underpinned by the ISO Standards. We co-design the system approach with you using our best practice tools and provide an action roadmap to make the shift. We lead the way in ISO56002 Innovation Management System Standards in Australia. Talk to us about making the shift.
