Our approach

We help you make innovation everybody’s business by building a community where corporate innovators can connect for inspiration, sharing of ideas, and development of innovation opportunities.

Open, collaborative and distributed have become the guiding principles for corporate innovation. But many organizations are still struggling with transcending organizational structures and engaging people across the organization in the innovation effort.

At Nosco, we help you build your innovators’ community. A community where your innovators and corporate entrepreneurs can connect. Connect for sharing of observations, gathering inspiration about trends and practices, collaborating and developing ideas and innovation opportunities, and staying updated about what’s happening on the innovation front.

Our experience from corporate innovation programs, enables us to help companies transform into collaborative and innovative organizations. We help you define the purpose and target audience of your innovation community. For most organizations, this audience is both internal and external. We support you in clarifying the value creating exchanges within the community and establishing a platform to support the connections and exchanges within the community. We help you define key events and rituals of your community. And we help you launch and roll out the innovation community.

In short, we help you make innovation everyone’s business!

Innovation
Challenges

We help you rally your organization around your top innovation challenges.

Coming up with new ideas to drive growth is a major concern of most executives. Rather than relying only on established innovation functions and processes, companies are increasingly turning to innovation challenges to rally the collective power of their organizations and to come up with new innovation opportunities.

Throughout history, competitions have been used to spur innovation. Competitions help to generate breakthroughs by stimulating diversity: diversity among the individuals that compete, diversity in the way that contestants organize and collaborate, and diversity in the solutions they develop.

Open
Innovation

Sorry to break it to you but, no matter how many people you have working for you, there’s probably more brainpower outside your company.

We have expertise in helping organisations feed from their existing network or develop a new network of academia, partners and start-up companies.

Collaborative
Ideation

We help you build the capabilities to leverage the power of idea campaigns.

Idea campaigns represent a new opportunity for many large organizations – an opportunity to activate the infinite knowledge and experience of people inside and outside the organization through collaboration around specific challenges or questions.

While idea management is closely associated with the discipline of innovation, the potential of idea campaigns is much broader. For example, developing and maturing ideas in the early stages of the innovation pipeline; crowdsourcing solutions to specific technical problems; gathering and sharing ideas, experiences and practices for improving processes and performance; or engaging employees and stakeholders in collaborative strategizing.

Corporate
Entrepeneurship

We make sure your company innovates the start-up way.

Because innovation is about people, not about ideas, we train your employees and your leadership team in entrepreneurship.

When an investment opportunity is way beyond incremental changes, we ensure that a venture-style investment approach is implemented and we make sure your company innovates the start-up way.

Most people working in a large organisation do not have the tools to work as corporate entrepreneurs. However, they each have the potential to become one. We train employees in entrepreneurial methods so that they can turn good ideas into clear-cut investment cases. The knowledge and confidence gained will change their approach for the rest of their careers.
