About

Our mission

Organizing4Innovation guides experts in service organizations on their innovation journey. The results of this proprietary methodology are implemented new technologies, processes, and solutions that increase earnings and attract new clients.  

Approximately 70% of all service organizations don’t have innovation departments or a formal innovation process. With human capital being their main asset, the innovation process is not the same as it is for manufacturing firms. Without the capabilities and infrastructure to innovate, service organizations miss out when an opportunity arises to leap forward.

We are dedicated to help every service organization innovate successfully, since they are especially impacted by today’s fourth industrial revolution.

Why is your innovation success so important to us? We know that you can change the world for the better. We also know that innovation failure is costly and not really an option for most service organizations. Therefore, we are committed to your success. We cannot guarantee that every innovation initiative you start will be successful. Instead, we guarantee the outcomes of our programs. If you put skin in the game, so do we!

Make innovate work!
