Just a few of our Everyday Innovators:
Despite overall market growth, the engineering industry is undergoing dramatic change with numerous challenges such as:
- Increasing importance of sustainable development
- Intensifying cost pressures, with a trend towards fixed-bid projects with extremely tight budgets
- Advances in technology and the need for rapid adoption, as well as an increasing demand for tech skills
- Labour shortages, with an ageing workforce and a low number of women in engineering
- Demand for higher operations precision and efficiency
- The need to co-create with diverse groups - suppliers, manufacturers, vendors, partners etc.
How can you mitigate these challenges to remain competitive now and in the future?

See how we've helped our customers innovate:
An international engineering group
Captured start-up ideas from their employees, using a structured development process, with each stage as a learning course. Winning ideas were presented to management, to win time and investment for further development and implementation.
A UK water sector business
To detect the build-up of water blockages in sewer networks this company ran an open innovation challenge to crowdsource ideas. The solution found was a sewer monitoring system composed of a myriad of fixed sensors.
