Innovation and Entrepreneurship

I founded and continue to lead the Innovation and Enterprise Research Lab in 2002. It is also known as the Magic Lab. The lab is a pioneer and a leader conducting transdisciplinary research into strategic and disruptive innovations that will transform society in the coming decade. We are currently focused on understanding the entrepreneurial mindset and creating innovative practical frameworks for decision making, socially-aware technologies like robots, smart buildings and cities that delight; analytics-enabled organisations; intelligent and predictive software for the Internet of All Things.

The Magic Lab can help you learn about strategic innovation and make a difference to your enterprises - your new ventures, your life and your business. We can help transform organisations, cultures and behaviours.

We can help you:

  • generate insights about customers, competitors, and costs that will allow you to develop innovative and cost-effective products and services, and to design innovation strategies to transform your business,
  • design robust intelligent systems that can make smart decisions and work with people,
  • create insights and make predictions using data analytics and artificial intelligence to transform your organisation and create innovative products or services, and
  • transform your life by working with you towards launching a start-up, or gaining a PhD in Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Technology.

Our core expertise enables the generation and discovery of insights that can inform decision making and action under uncertainty and risk.
