Your Power Patterns team will draw upon aspects of Thomas Edison’s Five Competencies of Innovation™ and his Four Phases of True Collaboration™ in delivering their recommendations.  

Every project is custom-designed using our proprietary Innovation Blueprint™ approach:

    • Identify individual, team, and cultural strengths as well as opportunity areas 
    • Define the role of innovation within the enterprise

Phase 2: Align

    • Identify innovation champions to drive short- and long-term momentum
    • Apply our proprietary Innovation Blueprint(tm) process to identify new revenue streams and growth platforms
    • Develop an innovation roadmap that links needs, trends and data relevant to your competitive domains

Phase 3: Activate

    • Frame a business case for each growth platform
