Ideact teaches a well-established, human-centred process which will help you to establish new ways of working, by giving you design-led innovation management skills and competencies.

The Power of Open Innovation

Open Innovation challenges save money and reduce time to market, by tapping into research and development done by others, giving you access to innovation that is ready for commercialisation.

Open Innovation Programmes are the modern alternative to traditional procurement – you don’t just find a serviceable solution, but the best one possible, by testing first. Discover our work with the award-winning Lloyd’s Register Safety Accelerator.

The Right Culture

This sparks and harnesses the innovative abilities innate in your organisation. It is about using Design Thinking to inspire and lead behaviour change. By empowering everyone with the confidence and will to think differently, we can solve challenges in new ways. We focus on experience building and up-skilling, enabling a ground swell of ideas to come forward. 

The Right Process

This ensures you can support the germination of ideas through to realised products, services and business model innovations in your organisation, in the most timely and efficient way.  We help you to select and implement cloud-based innovation process management software. This creates an accessible environment to manage ideas, challenges and concepts and maintains momentum on the roll out of your innovation. Metrics and governance can then be easily measured and achieved.

The Right Partners

Partners can extend the reach of the organisation with a much faster turnaround, and better innovation resiliency. It results in the co-creation and development of your sector’s eco-system, with you at the core. We help you to develop Open Innovation practices, particularly challenge-based procurement, accelerators and incubators. We expertly select and implement these programmes, as well as act as an intermediary for Commercial, Academic and Government partnerships.
