About

Our mission

We help service organizations achieve their innovation and digital transformation goals by putting in place the appropriate processes, metrics, and training programs. 

What makes Organizing4Innovation unique? We help you implement an innovation process that delivers results in your unique context, while working with the available resources and talent.

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

We are dedicated to help every service organization achieve their innovation and digital transformation goals. Make use of our experience to get your project teams the guidance and feedback they need to succeed. Build on our service innovation expertise to create and implement an innovation process that works for you.

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!
