InnovaStrat’s thought leadership has produced strategic frameworks and practices that enable sustainable business strategies, models, innovations, and leadership.

Dr. Ram Nidumolu is the lead author of “The Collaboration Imperative,” featured in the April 2014 Harvard Business Review spotlight on sustainability and business resilience. The article describes four innovative business models for sustainable collaboration in the corporate and extended value chain and the next practices for enabling them.

Our framework for sustainable innovation was listed on the cover of the September 2009 edition of Harvard Business Review. HBR identified the article, lead-authored by InnovaStrat CEO Ram Nidumolu, as one of the top five sustainability publications of the last decade, and republished it in its Spring 2010 OnPoint edition. InnovaStrat’s five-stage process, based on 30 leading G500 corporations, continues to receive worldwide attention at conferences and in board rooms and C-suites.

Similarly, our framework for sustainable growth was recognized by the Stanford Social Innovation Review in its Winter 2012 publication. This framework is based on work with leading global corporations such as Alcoa and Puma. Lead author, Ram Nidumolu, CEO of InnovaStrat, collaborated with the CEO of Puma and the President of Growth Initiatives at Alcoa to produce this groundbreaking research.
