We are Strategic Innovation, the team that works with you to deliver positive and impactful innovation that makes a difference.

Our key driving force is to make the world a better place – one project at a time. As a result – social, environmental and economic sustainability are integral in what we do.

We are more about implementation than ideation – finding the best ways to make things happen, for real.



Strategic Innovation combines extensive research capabilities with creative and systematic problem-solving tools to meet our clients’ needs. We specialise in the Innovation process – taking into account contradictory requirements of consumers, technology, regulation and business.

We deliver technology landscapes and identify transferable technologies. We facilitate innovation programmes and workshops resulting in new product concepts or valuable intellectual property.

Importantly, we bring all this together to form actionable strategic plans.


Every project starts afresh with in depth conversations between the client and the Strategic Innovation team. This ensures alignment between client needs and what we set out to deliver.

Technology Scouting and transferable systems – involving analysis and description of industry sectors or markets.

We identify and explore white space opportunities through extensive research and coordination with global experts incl. senior academic researchers, institutes and organisations.

Intelligence is gathered, analysed and synthesised into client tailored solution directions.

Creative Problem Solving using a range of systematic innovation tools and industry experts to solve business related challenges and achieve step change improvement in business performance, with our clients.

We typically offer this through creative workshops – resulting in novel product concepts, systems and processes or valuable intellectual property.

Intellectual Property landscaping allows us to scope out and find the limits of a technology or a specific product market for a client.

This allows us to assist clients with the generation and protection of secure, valuable patents. If required, we can also help clients to understand and find work arounds to competitor patents.

Innovation Training can be delivered at a range of levels to a client. SI assess the innovation capability level of organisations, so that they can match projects from their pipeline to their ability, increasing confidence and success rates.

We teach systematic innovation tools, enabling clients to increase their innovation capability and to successfully break new ground, disrupt markets, expand and maximise their “innovation footprint”.


Strategic Innovation work with our clients to identify the right questions and the most important contradictions within their sector, system or product.

Once the right challenges are defined, we apply a range of systematic and creative problem solving tools to achieve breakthrough solutions.

Our systematic approach is our way of making technical innovation reliable and predictable, ensuring that our clients engage in value adding and impactful innovation.
