Innovation Management

The Founders of The Shaftesbury Partnership have decades of experience helping launch initiatives such as Teach First, the Foodbank network by Trussell Trust, and National Citizenship Service.

Now through our Innovation Management service we are enabling other organisations to horizon-scan, cultivate, and back their own initiatives to make impact systematically.

We recognise that leaders want to build stronger and more resilient futures by:

  • Rapidly developing or procuring innovative offerings
  • Managing the tension of proven products that risk being disrupted and unproven possibilities that risk failure
  • Creating impact and value beyond the sole pursuit of profit, while surviving and thriving in the long-term

Yet, existing approaches to innovation no longer adequately address the reality of our increasingly VUCA world, and 'black swan events', which can cause catastrophic outcomes across whole systems, are becoming more common.

Responding to this, our team helps organisations experience an Innovation Management Transformation through leveraging tools such as:

  • SPx Global Threat Index
  • Agent-based modelling
  • AI-powered collaboration
  • War-gaming

Our goal is to enable you to release your innovation potential, increase your impact, and become both more resilient and more competitive.
