Strategic Innovation Capabilities

Tackling breakthrough strategies often requires leaders to look at problems differently. Our Strategic Innovation Capability engages with business leaders on how to possess and apply an understanding of how innovation really happens, developing their strategic innovation skills, and as a result, fostering a more innovative culture.

People are innovative, not companies.

Spending millions of dollars on innovation incentives won’t make your company more creative. Nor can breakthrough innovation be delegated. Those who own its implementation should be central to its generation. Even organizations who recognize the necessity of executive involvement in Strategic Innovation may not have the innovation insights, tools, and skills necessary to apply strategic innovation principles to specific business challenges.


Most innovation strategies include outdated or ineffective methods for generating ideas. Clarkston Consulting helps our clients create an organizational capability around strategic innovation by advising on innovation capability needs, and delivering leadership coaching and immersion workshop sessions.
