The Athens office of the Stanton Chase global management consulting firm is pleased to announce a new advisory partnership with Dr. Ikhlaq Sidhu, a professor, Chief Scientist, and Faculty Director at UC Berkeley’s Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship & Technology in the United States.
Sidhu will serve as an innovation expert and adviser for the newly built Digital Acceleration & Sustainable Innovation (DA&SI) unit of Stanton Chase Athens, which will benefit from his extensive and in-depth knowledge of enterprise innovation research.
At Berkeley, which Forbes magazine has ranked as the No. 1 university in the world, Sidhu developed the Entrepreneurship & Technology area, the Berkeley Method of Entrepreneurship for new ventures, and the Berkeley Method of Innovation Leadership for technical leaders.
The multi-awarded professor leads the Berkeley Innovation Index (BII), an open-research concept and global collaboration project born out of interdisciplinary research by UC Berkeley faculty. The first-of-its-kind BII offers simple yet powerful ways to measure an individual’s innovative mindset level and their power to innovate.
The Stanton Chase Athens DA&SI unit, led by Elena Barla, BEng, Meng, MBA, and her team has developed a series of people-centric services and solutions aiming to effectively help companies digitally transform their business.
“The most crucial challenge when looking at the decade ahead is the capability to innovate and re-invent yourself as a business,” says Barla. “At the DA&SI unit, we have developed a breakthrough service called Innovation Factory that helps our clients imprint innovativeness onto their company DNA.”
“We are excited to have professor Ikhlaq Sidhu aboard with us, bringing substantial expertise and know-how in the innovation field and helping us guide Greek companies through their challenging digital transformation and innovation journeys.”Manos Panorios, Managing Director of Stanton Chase Athens
Sidhu stated: “Along with Stanton Chase Athens and the DA&SI team, we are launching soon a unique innovation tool that will help measure the level of innovativeness within a company. I am looking forward to supporting companies and their employees and leaders in ways to capture and improve their innovativeness capabilities.”
