Strategic Innovation & Design

We’ve found there is no universal process to address strategic business challenges in today’s accelerating landscape. We believe a new approach is needed to help companies with sustained growth through strategic innovation, marketing, technology and design. ‘Ignite Exponential’ is our Innovation unit.

Our work shows that until you engage in the detail of a strategic innovation challenge it isn’t possible to know which “standard process” is going to be most effective. And conventional innovation tools can get in the way of true collaboration and innovation success – and lead to “standard” results.

Expertise

Ignite Exponential

Ignite Exponential (IEX) partners with established companies to understand their strategic challenges and explore disruptive growth opportunities through collaborative research, innovation, design and technology.

Our work is often driven by changing and uncertain customer needs, technology capabilities, emerging business models and competitive landscapes.

  • Innovation Strategy: stakeholder & innovation workshops, research, landscaping, road mapping & futurescaping
  • Innovation Design: concept generation, creative problem solving, prototyping & development
  • Innovation Capability: learning safaris, benchmarking, workshops, coaching & training.

IEX Approach

We’ve fused Plextek’s deep hands-on technical experience in sensing, data collection, communications and advanced computing (e.g. AI, IoT, Edge) with leading expertise in innovation strategy and design to create a new offering dedicated to helping businesses grow in these disruptive times.

We partner with global industry leaders across business functions and industries to redefine strategic challenges, identify new opportunities, robust concepts before development and create winning solutions.

We are not restricted to specific innovation processes or methodology, but bring a broad toolbox of approaches and experience to co-create strategic innovation opportunities and design future offerings.
