Does it feel like everything is in a state of flux? Forget about drifting in the current. Be the current! At NOI, we have the power to do so. We have the knowledge and experience of 1,200 experts at our disposal. We scout new technologies and trends every day to identify risks and opportunities early on. The instrument that determines the direction is the Alpha Innovation Radar. It assesses companies’ opportunities to pave the way to innovation. The signals are there. Your job is to receive them.

Create Ideas. Develop radically new ideas. Across the board.

Radically new ideas for products, services and business models. That means: developing ideas openly and cross-functionally. We tailor all our idea-generating tools to the needs of your company. In workshops and web-based Alpha Innovation Challenges, we refresh your team’s creative potential: with start-ups, students, researchers and experts. All of a sudden, you can see new ways forward.

Make Decisions. Commit to a sustainable way forward. Four factors help.

Which ideas will allow your company to progress? At some point, you have to decide. Even though there are many unknowns, following your gut instinct is not the answer. Together we will assess which ideas have promise. In the end, there are four deciding factors: Does it generate clear added value?Is it technically possible? Environmentally friendly? Marketable? At the end of the process, you will be ready to find the sweet spot: the optimal decision.
