Many of our clients are progressing some form of transformation programme; often seeking to enable proactive process rationalisation and cost reduction, to improve the bottom line and enhance offerings simultaneously.
We offer support for specific aspects of transformation process working alongside internal teams. In practical terms this typically involves supporting cross departmental engagement, aspects of innovative culture, and actively progressing response to hard problems and difficult challenges.

+ADD Road-mapping is a powerful technique we use to help you build forward confidence and on-board different teams in your organisation. Our road-mapping process provides a practical interface between innovation strategy, specific technology and innovation initiatives and tactical management providing clarity and alignment at all levels, organisation-wide and beyond.
The vast majority of business knowledge is with your people and trapped in tacit form, not best used to support transformation or opportunity discovery and development. New knowledge flows in constantly too, through processes and routines.
At +ADD we understand that through the application and use of this tacit and new knowledge, innovation can be enhanced in the organisation. At +ADD we have specialists to understand how to discover knowledge, combine it to best effect. We are ubiquitous to solutions and suppliers and can advise on how to apply knowledge management techniques and processes to optimise knowledge creation, acquisition, capturing, assembling, sharing, integration, leverage and exploitation in the context of delivering your innovation strategy.
Innovation systems are only effective if a clear innovation strategy in adopted and process have been mapped in principle. We offer advise and support in installation, adoption and on-boarding, and even pilot campaign planning in the context of open innovation.
Following process mapping and development of priorities, systems are specified and introduced: Here are some examples of systems we have used:
Market informatics and gateways
Data visualisation and expression
Innovation pipeline dashboards
Open innovation and competition forums
Culture gamification tools
Ideas management systems (Front end)
Hackathon management platforms
Every now and again an initiative arises that has the potential to be highly disruptive. While offering undisputable potential benefits that outweigh risk; consequences of implementation could include substantial role redundancy, changes to processes, systems and even business models.
+ADD can assist by exploring and developing these initiatives offline, enabling progress to validation and affirmation without causing unnecessary organisational stress and uncertainty.
Our teams can assist you to resolve specific issues and challenges. We work in various fields to support development fresh thinking and new ideas.
