BUSINESS CREATION

    Extend your core business
    and create platforms
    for future growth

    Business creation is a strategic priority for 80% of companies but 75% focus only on incremental innovation.

    Too many corporate innovation programs either result in a blizzard of small, unrelated ideas or fail to convert potential opportunities to successful businesses. Growing a company relies on its ability to identify and realize opportunities within its core markets as well as to create new businesses by tapping into adjacencies and white spaces.

    While innovation remains a topic of strategic importance and corporations worry about disruption most do not invest adequately to prevent it. If this seems tough to accomplish, especially when new opportunities do not immediately fit the current business model we have the methods, tools and approaches to help clients invest in their future success.

    A repeatable process for growth

    repeatable innovation process

    We help our clients create substantial growth platforms within their core markets, adjacencies and in white spaces; and through Agile Commercialization, they take business ideas within these platforms all the way to market success.

    Strategos clients benefit from a proven, repeatable and systemic approach to identify opportunities and turn ideas into successful products, services, and businesses.

    Specifically we help clients to:

    • Develop fresh perspectives on market dynamics, customer needs and change drivers
    • Find potential for disruption by examining company and industry structures and conventions
    • Identify opportunities for leveraging a company’s core competencies in other markets
    • Identify game changing ideas and turn these into a portfolio of actionable growth platforms
    • Develop business concepts and solutions that can be pitched for further investments
    • Reduce risk and test market viability through small scale experiments
    • Accelerate and scale ideas that have demonstrated their viability
