Booz Allen’s Innovation Blueprint
Leaders in the private and public sectors view innovation as a business imperative, but few have a consistent or applicable framework to address their complex needs. Whether you’re a hesitant innovator, seasoned and agile, or somewhere in between, the eight components of our Innovation Blueprint provide a holistic framework that help you build new value—not just new things.
Focus Your Agenda
We define innovation as change with impact. And to maximize impact you need focus and direction. Our strategists work with you to focus your investments on a potent blend of assets and capabilities. Together, we’ll ignite your original thinking into the products and solutions that will propel your business forward.
Diversify Your Portfolio
For some, intensity and diversity feel like opposite ends of a spectrum. But not to us. By constructing a diversified, world-class portfolio of integrated products, services and solutions we intensify your ability to build more agile business models and map alternative revenue streams.
Renew Your Brand Value
You want to be known for creating innovative solutions that deliver original value and influence the manner in which your customers operate and perform. We all do. That is why we help amplify your brand through experiences that capture the imaginations of your audience. It’s the best way to grow affinity and loyalty.
Build Your Internal Ecosystem
A creative culture isn’t created by chance. It’s engineered. It’s practiced. It’s disciplined. And we can help. By creating a network of physical and digital tools and programs within your organization you can tap into the potential of your people. Together, we can create an environment that encourages your employees to explore their best ideas, to engage in meaningful opportunities, to develop their entrepreneurial excellence, and build business value.
Inspire Your People
Organizations need people to work. The best ones are built and maintained by inspired people. They want unique engagement, recruiting and training programs. All they need is the tools. We show you how to inspire your employees with worthwhile challenges, constant learning, and the opportunity to pioneer new ways to meet your mission.
Lead Through Collaboration
Great leaders lead through others. They get in front of future market disruptors by creating the environment for others to share ideas internally, to integrate capabilities, and to collaborate with customers. As a business leader, we share techniques that help you establish the meaningful and lasting connections to tackle complex problems with a focus on the future.
Don’t Go It Alone
Nobody has the monopoly of good ideas and solutions. By establishing lasting partnerships and relationships with your industry’s leading vendors, you can extend your reach and broaden your capacity and brand. We work with you to build key partnerships and alliances to combine your best capabilities with market-leading offerings.
Solve Cross-Industry Challenges
The best challenges are the big ones that require us to deconstruct problems and apply thinking in new ways. Together, we can combine over a century of industry insights, technical prowess, and the ingenuity to collectively discover outcomes that address your biggest and most complex challenges.
