Programmes


Original Editions supports business leaders to assess their strategic challenges and realise their future vision for growth.

 

Launched in 2013, our innovation programmes have now reached over 2,100 businesses. By developing an innovation culture, business leaders benefit from a more engaged and forward thinking workforce, and are in a better position to identify new opportunities for growth.

 

Working with our clients to enable innovation means changing mindsets and patterns of behaviour. It is a challenging process to break old habits but ultimately the results can be highly rewarding for both individuals and organisations alike e.g. new products, better services, smarter processes, more motivated staff, a more sustainable business… Read some of our stories about working with different organisations and what steps they've taken to develop innovation.
