INNOVATION THAT MATTERS

Facilitating value exploration workshops for both companies and startups.

Hani's work and research focus on the blue areas in the graph below. The same evidence-based, value-focused innovation process is applied to both cases. However, the cultural maturity of a startup vs. an established company makes the context very different.

In the "Initiate" horizon, Hani works with founders & founding teams. 

They explore & define the potential of a new thesis of value. 

Culture challenges: Dominant founder opinions.

Risk: Creating something nobody wants.


In the "Create" horizon, Hani works with corporate innovation teams. 

They explore and discover a new thesis of value to stay relevant. 

Culture challenges: Dominant corporate politics.

Risk: Creating something nobody wants, unaligned with company strategy, or upsetting the boss!
Sometimes, all three!
