With the coronavirus pandemic, never before has technology been so crucial to the way we work and the way we live our lives. With the potential of lockdowns looming over, and the increased practice of social distancing (which is important by the way!), companies need to react or respond accordingly. A growing number of the workforce have already begun to work remotely, begging the question: how can we maintain productivity and adapt to risk in a time of such uncertainty?
Innovation is one of the biggest buzzwords in the corporate world at the moment. Everyone wants it or claims to be doing it. With the rise and power of new technologies that are (apparently) set to disrupt everyone’s business, it has never been more important to be “an innovative organisation” and to be seen to be “doing innovation”.
At The Bakery, we fundamentally believe that if you have a problem worth solving, then someone, somewhere has already solved it (or at least an aspect of it!). So rather than build in-house, why not partner with these startups? To cultivate effective partnerships with startups, it is essential to have the right building blocks for this relationship in place. Don’t know where to start? Well, we’re here to help!

In response to ever growing threats that have caused the average life-span of a company to fall significantly, we have seen the need to innovate faster and at a larger scale becoming more and more widely accepted amongst large corporations in recent years. How can this change be implemented?
