Innovation strategy analysis, planning and consulting that creates real impact for your organization 

EER Strategies offers over 20 years experience conducting customized visioning, planning and innovation workshops, developing executable strategies and plans, and facilitating team meetings tailored to meet your organization’s needs.


My innovation philosophy is grounded in a solid strategic plan, and executed by developing an innovation strategy aligned with the business strategy. Workshops are designed to disrupt traditional thinking, facilitate creativity and forward thinking, and lead to a more innovative culture.


SERVICES INCLUDE:

  • Innovation Strategy workshops built upon methodology developed by Harvard Business School                experts and customized to best meet your needs.  The workshops align innovation efforts with your          business strategy, creating a set of overarching innovation priorities that allow you to make effective          trade-off decisions and avoid the pursuit of conflicting efforts. The result is enhanced leadership and          front line employee innovation competency and a shared common purpose across the organization. 
  • Organizational change management workshops offering strategies for incorporating collaborative              innovation into the organization.  Barriers to cultural change and how to combat them are addressed.
  • Visioning and Blue Sky workshops to generate creating thinking and develop a shared vision for the         future, including synthesis of team ideas into a comprehensive report of findings and                                 recommendations.
  • Strategic Planning Workshops that includes definition of a communicable vision and mission, and              results in a strategic plan aligned with that vision, including an action plan with concrete milestones          and defined accountability to achieve your goals within a specified timeframe.
