Strategic Innovation

Booz Allen’s approach to innovation is solution-based

Driven by the imperative to rethink client problems that are large-scale, complex, and important to the mission

Booz Allen’s approach to innovation is solution-based—it is driven by the imperative to rethink client problems that are large-scale, complex, and important to the mission. In many cases, the first step is to use scientific knowledge and expertise to create breakthroughs in overarching problems, such as how to bring together and leverage an organization’s widely disparate data sources. The next step is to apply the larger innovation to specific client problems—developing entirely new strategies, solutions and products aimed at mission and business success.

Government and business organizations today face an extraordinary challenge—while their budgets are declining, the expectation that they can and should do more is actually increasing. And this growing gap between resources and expectations comes at a time when organizations’ mission and business problems are becoming more complex than ever.

Booz Allen Hamilton believes the best way to close the gap—and solve the difficult problems—is through innovation. By reimagining how things can be done, and applying those insights to real-world challenges, organizations can achieve levels of performance and mission success that may now be out of reach.

To help foster that innovation for our clients, Booz Allen is investing in and building new capabilities in five critical areas, and bringing them together in an array of integrated solutions platforms. This ambitious initiative, Booz Allen’s Strategic Innovation Group, is essentially a breeding ground for breakthrough innovation—and a way to share new thinking, new ideas and new concepts with our clients.
