“A COLLECTIVE, CROSS-FUNCTIONAL EFFORT”

“I’m a firm believer that sources of innovation within an organisation should come from everyone associated with the business. It’s not just the domain of the “one innovation team”. The best innovations today come from a collective, cross-functional effort”

– Matt Lucas, Senior consultant
