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.

Our approach

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

  • Rapidly developing or procuring innovative offerings that can make an immediate impact vs traditional approaches
  • 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 'grey swan events', which are relatively common, easy to predict, and which can cause catastrophic outcomes across whole systems over time.

Responding to this, our team helps organisations create ecosystems to solve thorny problems, by bringing together the procurers of innovation for impact, with front-line stakeholders and impact entrepreneurs, harnessing our data science tools and venturing experience.

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