Innovation Impact

Innovation is a priority.

Innovation is hope for a better future.

Innovation solves problems.

Innovation increases productivity.

Innovation creates opportunities, growth, and jobs.

Innovation is a perpetual objective and challenge for large organizations. Corporate leadership, university presidents and administration, and public policy makers, all see the need for, and benefits of, commercial innovation, but the mechanisms for achieving it remain simplistic, prone to bureaucratic jargon and infighting, and ultimately difficult to measure or assess.

Opus Faveo has developed and continues to invest in proprietary frameworks for maximizing innovation impact, understanding policy tools available to leaders, benchmarking innovation initiatives and outcomes against peers and the best-in-class, and assessing overall effectiveness and impact of innovation commercialization efforts.

Crisis Innovation and Post-pandemic Scenarios

The Covid-19 pandemic has altered the landscape in which all organizations function and has impacted every aspect of life. It has also accelerated already growing trends such as telework, online learning, telemedicine and e-commerce.

To develop perspectives on the post-pandemic environment, our research and consulting divisions conducted an extensive scenario planning effort based on the Delphi method. In total, a panel of 27 senior leaders independently assessed and rated over 130 discrete future scenarios and assigned probabilities to each.

Our panel was constructed to represent a diverse cross-section of organizations, including senior leaders in business, education, the non-profit sector, health care, finance and government. The result is a rich database, consisting of over 7,000 data points, providing insights into the future we will all face together after the Covid pandemic is resolved.
