Transforming ideas into reality.

Public Sector Program Partners

With reportable metrics to evaluate strategy and execution, our practical programs are designed to demonstrate value-for-money outcomes from taxpayer, member and stakeholder investment.

Could Impact Innovation be your next (or first) public sector program partner?

Program Design Navigator

Navigate the complexity of innovation capacity building and de-risk new initiatives with confidence. The Program Design Navigator identifies the most appropriate design elements based on the complexity of the program. Engaging Impact Innovation in the program design means our experienced consultants can guide your strategy, from stakeholder surveys to project implementation.

Once a new initiative is announced it is often difficult to determine the most appropriate design approach. The Program Design Navigator provides decision-makers with a structured approach to define the challenge and develop innovative approaches to solving those challenges.

When collaborating with government and industry peak bodies to solve innovation challenges, we are keenly aware of the need to manage stakeholder expectations, including transparency, accountability, social responsibility, and value for money.

The Program Design Navigator delivers:

  • effective strategy planning and processes
  • system design and implementation
  • insightful policy input

We help government, industry and community organisations achieve their innovation capability and capacity building goals. Contact us today to find out more.

Capability & Capacity Building

Take the guesswork out of training. We help you understanding the ‘jobs to be done’ and deliver practical evidence-based training that equips participants with the knowledge and skills to support lasting behavioural change.

Because we have extensive experience in the public sector – including government, universities, not-for-profits, industry peak bodies – our modules cover the kind of regional, small business and industry-specific challenges you won’t find addressed by most startup hubs, incubators and accelerators.

Work with us to help your community and other stakeholders learn how to navigate the complexity of turning ideas into value-adding processes, products and services and collaborate effectively to boost innovation impact.

CSIRO engaged our expertise to support a program for helping privately run Indonesian universities transition to government-funded institutions, opening up more opportunities for research commercialisation.

Impact Innovation curated options for the participating universities to adopt as their commercialisation models.

We also designed and delivered a training program to address skills gaps and improve industry relationships for collaborative projects.

These universities have now adopted the models and practices taught, better positioning them for financial and reputational rewards for translational research.

The University of Jember in East Java, for example, has since jumped from 63rd to 23rd in university rankings

26 projects were completed within six months, including one of the largest global commercialisation deals from a university.
