The programme came at exactly the right time for us and has given us a solid, structured process that we’re using as our core innovation method. We’re confident that this will deliver our innovation targets in due course. We’d have no hesitation recommending the programme especially for companies in similar circumstances looking for effective structured approaches to innovation.”
