Innovation @ WGI
The mission of the WGI Innovation Program is to accelerate WGI’s digital transformation and support our commitment to innovative solutions for our clients and the communities we serve.
Business & Innovation Goals
Our innovation goals are directly in support of WGI business goals and are aligned with, inspired, and guided by the WGI Core Values. Most corporate innovation goals consider the desired level of involvement, pace, and impact of innovation. Our program achieves this by executing on our core values:
Strategic Focus Areas
Our strategic focus areas include emerging and disruptive technologies such as 3D tools and software, artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), autonomous vehicles (AVs), building information modeling (BIM), cloud computing, digital twins, predictive analytics, robotic process automation (RPA) and visualization tools.
In addition to these discrete technologies and trends, we are also focused on business, process, and technology innovations such as platform and ecosystem business models, as-a-service subscription business models, and other approaches such as “combinatorial innovation” (i.e. applying a combination of technologies) for transformative outcomes for our clients.
We measure the success of our program by way of the following innovation metrics:
- Innovation Input & Mix – What’s going into our innovation pipeline in terms of the types of innovations in the queue
- Innovation Health & Efficiency – The flowrate through our pipeline and the amount of funding being applied
- Innovation Outcomes – The measure of return on innovation in terms of commercialized innovations that have captured revenues or other objectives
- Culture of Innovation – The progress we make fostering a culture of innovation across WGI
