Introducing LaunchPad

Instilling startup thinking and new critical skills into your business for growth.

Build a powerhouse for competitive advantage

As reported by the World Economic Forum: “The double disruption caused by automation and the pandemic is likely to displace 85 million jobs by 2025. Among those set to remain in their roles, 50% will need reskilling by 2025.” The impact of the pandemic and increased automation is going to continue to rumble through organisations and industries driving the need for upskilling. 


To adjust to the new norm of disruption and automation, organisations must adopt a strategy of flexibility and agility driven by creativity and innovation to be able to pivot, maximise opportunity and address the speed of change.

How companies encourage the adoption of this across their business and within the DNA of their talent will be the difference between those that survive and those who face being left behind.


By strategically deploying and instilling the skills that come with startup thinking across the business, you open up the opportunity for game-changing innovation and action-provoking creativity.

Innovation and creativity go hand in hand in the business world. You don’t want to have stale, plain solutions, services, and unappealing products that no one wants. You need to step out of your comfort zone, sweat your existing solutions for value while exploring brand new solutions, and stimulate creativity.

Despite significant growth since 2001, margins were being squeezed and Ramboll acknowledged the impact of competitors and startups on the value chain of their industry. The sheer speed of change led Ramboll to recognize the need to leverage and systematize their ability to innovate and future-proof their organisation.
