Client success details

Our robust consulting methodology  of in-depth analysis and insightful assessments with experts, enabled the client to pinpoint the most promising breakthroughs and early-stage technologies. This approach allowed them to navigate the vast expanse of potential innovations and focus on those with the highest potential. The study addressed several key business questions, including:

FutureBridge WSM Foresight provided us with invaluable insights into breakthrough and early-stage technologies in neurosurgery, ENT, ophthalmology, and head-related fields. This data-driven study enabled us to strategically allocate resources, optimize our pipeline and enrich our other future ventures at stake.
  • The emerging breakthroughs and early-stage technologies (weak signals) in the fields of neurosurgery, ENT, ophthalmology, and head. 
  • The overall attractiveness and business potential of these identified key weak signals. 
  • How will the technology roadmap evolve in the next 3-5 years within the medical technology spectrum? 
  • Which early-stage technologies remain less researched, yet potentially transformative?
  • What ideas or concepts might disrupt the medical technology landscape in the future? 
  • How do these key weak signals measure in terms of sustainability, impact functionality, economic advantages, safety, disruptiveness, and technological growth? 
  • From a business perspective, how attractive are these technologies, considering factors like potential business functions, competitive indices, and customer viewpoints? 
  • Which of these signals should the client prioritize based on factors like integration feasibility, technological know-how, and time-to-market considerations? 
  • Which of these technologies are predicted to evolve rapidly and become dominant in the coming years? 
  • How do these identified weak signals align with the client’s envisaged future technology roadmap? 

Our consulting approach was comprehensive, involving:

  • Comprehensive Analysis: This involved a thorough review of scientific literature on platforms like Scopus, Web of Science, PubMed, ScienceDirect, and others. Further analysis of industry insights from platforms like Questel, Mintel, Factiva, and a range of company reports, articles, news releases, and conferences, were conducted all focused on elevating healthcare.
  • Primary Consultations: Engaging expert interviews and consultation calls with key opinion leaders, subject matter experts, and other relevant stakeholders in the industry enabled in finalizing the optimal results.

Our systematic approach empowered the client to not only identify breakthrough technologies in their areas of interest but also to strategically position themselves to capitalize on these opportunities. The gained foresight rich insights  played a crucial role in enhancing their technology pipeline and a robust strategy for future endeavors.
