We provided advisory to Labs as they assessed their progress after four years and how they might embed their innovation capability into the broader business.

Using the IE growth system, we helped NAB think more systematically about growth, prioritising growth opportunities, skillsets and capabilities and business creation.

An assessment of business strategy and current culture and programs of NAB led to a clear recommendation to shift the focus of Labs to disruptive growth (the ‘2.0 framework’), with a robust innovation accounting system for measurement that was accepted by the CEO.


“In 2018, John provided critical advisory and coaching as NAB Labs assessed its future strategy after 4 years of operation. The business faced critical decisions about the nature and role of innovation in defining future growth pathways, and John's guidance and frameworks helped us recommend a clear path forward.”

Kim Anderson, Head of NAB Labs
