Our Future Networks

Our Innovation strategy..

Think Big

Think in a ‘big-picture” way initially to ensure that larger trends are not missed and that they inform even minor changes.

Start Small

Find small pilot projects to test innovations on a limited scale that can be readily assessed and the potential benefits measured.

Scale Fast

Move as quickly as possible once an innovation has proven itself and make sure that the changes needed to maximise benefits are embedded into our business.
