Drive Sustainable Growth Through Process Standardization, Enhanced Visibility and Cross-Functional Collaboration

Chemical industry innovation is a cornerstone for growth and success, yet even leading companies globally struggle with establishing the right processes to support innovation performance. Today’s highly competitive environment—combined with dynamic markets, volatile material costs and ever-changing regulatory requirements —pose challenges that inhibit the success of chemical innovation. Through working with companies across the spectrum of the chemical industry, we see a common set of challenges:

  • “We need to reduce complexity and support a standard, gated process across the global organization.”
  • “We have to get products to market faster to retain competitive advantage and drive profitability.”
  • “We struggle with effective cross-functional collaboration when it comes to innovation.“
  • “We often find resources spread thin across a high number of initiatives and struggle with bringing focus to the optimal portfolio mix.”
  • “We have no visibility into research and development activities across global business units.”
