GICs have a unique view that enables them to see their organizations both from the outside looking in and the inside looking out. As a result, they are able to offer strategic insights to orchestrate enterprise-wide innovation. Our emerging analysis shows that more and more enterprises are leveraging their GICs to partner with start-ups to source innovation ideas across their products and services portfolios.
