Innovating at pace and scale

The new dynamic market is driving the need for innovation in every field. Organizations are realizing that innovation needs to become a continuous process—not a one-off event—to survive and grow in today’s digital world. However, not many organizations are able to innovate in a structured way to gain maximum value, at pace and scale.

Our experts offer an end-to-end innovation service suite to help clients establish a structured and consolidated innovation management process. We assist from organizational design to operations transformation, shaping and enabling cultural change. We coach our clients’ experts in how to operate as successful innovators. Leveraging our design and innovation studio space, we run design sprints to develop minimum viable products and minimum viable organizations, incubating and continuously improving clients’ internal innovation agencies.

“To meet the expectations of users today and in the future, IT needs new approaches. Using CGI’s analysis and methodology, we were able to identify specific options for action and, together with the specialist departments, develop common ideas for improving service quality.”
Prof. Dr. Manfred Paul, Head of Central IT at Munich University of Applied Sciences
