Innovating at pace and scale

In today’s dynamic market, innovation needs to become a continuous process—not a one-off event. The goal is to innovate in a structured way to gain maximum value—at pace and scale. This requires closing any agility gaps and implementing innovations quickly across the enterprise at scale. Many organizations, however, face challenges in moving past the prototypes and scaling their ideas to achieve fast and lasting results.

  • 50% of business executives interviewed as part of the 2020 CGI Client Global Insights said they measure the ROI of innovation investments.
  • 22% say they are highly satisfied with the ROI from innovation investments (8 or above on a scale of 1 to 10).

From innovation sprints to “culture hacking” and innovator coaching, we help you implement innovation management in a targeted, structured and strategic manner to harness and monetize creative ideas from within the organization. Our end-to-end innovation service suite helps you build a structured and consolidated innovation management process. We drive cultural change through organizational design and operations transformation, and, in our design and innovation studios, we run design sprints to develop minimum viable products with agility, quality and speed.
