About Innosight

We are a strategic innovation consulting firm. We focus exclusively on enabling companies to achieve repeatable growth through innovation and innovation management. We do not believe in a brute-force approach to transformation, nor do we believe that more people looking at the same data in the same way is the key business strategy for identifying new growth opportunities.

As such, our teams tend to be small and highly collaborative. Every one of our innovation services engagements has two goals — to meet or exceed our client’s expectations and to actively transfer our capabilities and knowledge to our client team members.
