PA Consulting Group’s research is profiled on Sky News’ Ian King Live show. The PA report, ‘Innovation as unusual’ formed the basis of an interview with McLaren and the news item also focuses on the concept of an innovation drain - where good ideas are wasted for avoidable reasons - which was identified in our report.
The news item begins by reporting on PA’s finding that UK organisations are flushing nearly £65 billion down the drain each year on wasted innovation ideas. Sky News’ Ian King visits McLaren to find out how it ensures innovation contributes to its success.
