  • 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.
