DSS Introduces New Innovation Management Consulting Practice

Offering helps companies add value in increasingly competitive global markets

 

GENEVA, 28 November 2018 – DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) today announced the launch of a new global Innovation Management consulting practice that is specifically designed to enable B2B clients to bring more high value-added products and business models to market, profitably. 
 

“DuPont Sustainable Solutions’ latest offering draws upon our experience honed over thousands of client engagements, as well as the expertise of DuPont – a company with a long history of science and market-based innovation,” said Davide Vassallo, Global Managing Director for DuPont Sustainable Solutions.  “DSS helps chemical, fertilizer, utilities and companies in various industries to move from a commodity to value-added product strategy execution through the collection of market insights and innovation pipeline acceleration.” 
 

As Alexey Lesin, Global Practice Leader, Innovation for DuPont Sustainable Solutions said, “Companies across a wide range of sectors are finding that competition and customers are increasingly pushing them to deliver innovations to the market. It has become a prerequisite for survival, not a choice anymore.  However, to introduce the innovations required, they must do more than simply invest in R&D. They need to build the right context for innovation by identifying the right market opportunities, by better managing value chains and collaborating with partners and customers to deliver results successfully.”
 

DuPont Sustainable Solutions has implemented several impactful innovation projects to date for its clients across mature and developing regions. For example, a downstream chemical client achieved a ten-fold increase in new product ideas and concepts, and a 30 percent increase in innovation pipeline through high value-solutions. “The pilot results are inspiring and have prompted us to share our know-how and experience with more companies that aspire to turn their innovation strategies into reality by transforming their organization and driving innovation culture, processes and capabilities to achieve high-value added growth,” noted Vassallo.
