The innovation toolbox

A dramatic transformation is occurring within the design industry. Front runners among strategic design agencies are working in increasingly complex projects and are starting to redefine their role and services in relation to corporate clients.

This development is taking place along with an increased demand in the market place for new thinking and new ways of innovating. In the face of globalisation, successful corporations can no longer attain growth through optimisation of processes alone instead they must accelerate their innovation rate. Several professional design agencies have been aware of the existence of a new opportunity for quite some time and have been working hard to become strategic innovation partners for corporate clients.
