Changes in customer-corporate relations with Eric Saint Andre

About this episode

Eric Saint Andre is a leading expert in design thinking, innovation, business model innovation, new business design and startup acceleration. He is the Founder and Managing Director of ASA Advisory Services, a leading Innovation Consultancy based in Singapore and also the founder of Augmented Tribe, a tech startup offering an Innovation Platform to support organizations with their innovation and digital transformation initiatives.

Eric has worked hand in hand with hundreds of corporate innovation teams as part of innovation programs he has designed and facilitated. He has also accelerated in excess of 100 startups in South East Asia working hand in hand with each one of those over the past eight years based in Singapore.

With years of practical knowledge and experience in innovation methodologies such as Design Thinking, Lean Startup, Future-Driven Business Innovation, Business Model Innovation, Eric has helped numerous large MNCs, local enterprises and public organizations (GovTech, SBF, SG Innovate, etc.)  designing and facilitating fit-for-purpose design thinking, innovation and transformation programs, to help them become more agile, innovative and highly adaptable to change.”

Here are some highlights of our discussion: 

  • What is the history of corporate innovation, what has worked and what hasn’t, and yes the challenge of classical innovation labs
  • How our expectations as customers and consumers have evolved, and how corporations had to adopt more human-centric approaches
  • The big corporate gaps: the exploration and venture building engines are weak, and governance often still holds back long-term horizon exploration
  • The rise of ambidextrous organizations, segregating exploratory units from their traditional units
  • What’s inside the innovation engine?
  • How corporate innovation engines are tapping into and retaining intrapreneurs by offering more autonomy and incentives
  • Can funding, assets and talents become decentralized? How would we create a decentralized venture builder?
