Create a structured innovation framework to become more methodical in the organisation’s approach to innovation.
What we did
- Created a robust, science-based, organisation-wide innovation process, which provides structure for how innovation happens at Lendlease, key roles and responsibilities, and funding guidelines.
- Trained around 200 Innovation Champions globally who mentor/coach/facilitate others through the innovation process.
- Worked with the global leadership team to set clear focus areas for innovation
- Trained Innovation Leads (senior innovation leaders in each region globally) on how to create an innovation culture
- Run an annual global innovation training program for high potential leaders to teach them critical innovation skills.
- Produced hundreds of innovations in the pipeline, with many that focus on productivity improvement, and others that are disruptive and will have a direct impact on growing the bottom line.
- Added significant speed to their approach to innovation, getting “products” to market faster.
- Saved significant money through running experiments prior to implementation.
- Globally, staff now put the customer at the heart of innovation, which is now helping Lendlease drive innovations that truly do add value to the customer.
- Ultimately, Inventium’s work has been instrumental in Lendlease generating high value customer centric solutions that will differentiate the company and create value.
