I'm a management consultant that educates on frontier technologies and how they can be applied to business strategy. The context for this work is open innovation.
Open innovation is an approach to business that requires intermediaries, like me, who bridge cultural and cognitive differences, translate forms of knowledge and explain cutting-edge technologies for the people that make key decisions about corporate strategic direction.
I offer my services as a connector of people, products and methods. I help to locate and implement opportunities within emergent technologies as they relate to developing new initiatives within a company’s strategic planning process.
My focus is on scanning, gathering and communicating information as well as linking people together and brokering relationships.
As an innovation intermediary, I work with companies to facilitate the process of innovation in order to help the senior management (aka the C-suite team) to stay ahead of trends in and around their industry. In this way, I help companies work better, smarter, more efficiently and more competitively.
I can bring your company fresh ideas and creative approaches to what you do, or I can locate new customers to use your technologies, services or products. I can help your management team view your business from a different perspective and as a result, see the bigger picture.
Also, through a fresh analysis and assessment of your workflow and a strategic understanding of how you want to grow your business, I can scan the landscapes of innovation - across disciplinary boundaries - and connect your company with who and what I find.
I can work together with your senior management team, staff and a team of talented freelancers to design, develop, implement and evaluate frontier solutions to make your company more competitive.
My goal is to make what you do best, better.
