Why corporate strategy needs innovation
Corporate Strategy guides processes, positioning, partnerships, and resource allocation. Innovation plays a central role in shaping corporate strategy to improve existing products and services. It enables the development of new offerings to meet changing customer needs and requirements in the future.
Every innovation initiative, project, and activity is linked to strategic goals. Corporate strategy and innovation should therefore go hand in hand.
