Managing innovation at Ramboll – Line Lyst

Published by Will Needham on

This week’s show is all about managing innovation within large incumbent businesses and it comes from Copenhagen in Denmark!

I speak with Line Lyst the Director of Innovation at the large Danish AEC consultancy with over 15,000 employees!

In this episode, we’ll be answering some big question. 

  • Why does Ramboll monitor over 1000 startups in the AEC industries? 
  • How is innovation managed in this large, incumbent engineering consultancy with more than 15000 employees? 
  • How does the Innovation Accelerator ensure that good ideas earn revenue from real clients as early as possible? 

Thanks a lot to Line for her time and sharing her experience in managing innovation with large incumbent organisations. Hopefully there’s a lot of useful takeaways for the listener – let me know if you enjoyed the episode!

I believe in a future built environment that is safe, sustainable, healthy, efficient & productive. Actually, I believe pockets of excellence in each of these things already exist; they are just distributed geographically in different parts of the world. My mission is to go out there and find these pockets of excellence and tell the stories of the people, projects, policies that are responsible for such positive steps.
