Current Priority Research Areas

Artificial Intelligence for Business Decision Makers

It’s becoming clear that Artificial Intelligence is a transformative new general-purpose technology. Following in the footsteps of other GPT’s such as the printing press, steam engine, electricity and microprocessor; AI algorithms have the potential to radically transform employment, productivity and society. Business decision makers need to mitigate underlying risks and invest appropriately to drive future competitive advantage.

Intrapreneurship; Leveraging Startup Best Practices in Mature Firms

We believe that mature firms should choose a ‘best of both worlds’ option for innovation and growth. They should borrow best practices from start-ups and global technology giants while at the same time leveraging their existing capabilities and resources.

Exponential Technologies and the Changing Nature of Competition

In a world that is changing faster than ever before and at an accelerating rate what’s a mature firm to do to compete and win? The answer begins with understanding exponential technologies and the changing business models they enable.

Testimonials

“Paul is the type of mentor any company would be lucky to have. He has been our mentor for just over two years at the RIC Centre, and in that time he helped guide what was a technology first startup founded by engineers with a cool science project, into a company with a clear business and technology strategy. He has an uncanny ability to identify what’s truly significant in a sea of noisy information, distill it, and communicate it – usually with a very memorable analogy or anecdote. In short, Paul is awesome.”
– Dmitri Ignakov, Co-founder, Taiga Robotics
“I’ve had the pleasure of being mentored by Paul for just over 2 years now. When my business partner and I first came to the RIC centre’s door Paul complemented our science project and asked us where the product was. He took two engineers with virtually no business smarts or understanding and has built us up to a point where we are able to autonomously pursuit our venture in ways we didn’t imagine before. He’s got a great collection of stories he uses for analogies, seemingly for every situation, which makes his advice uniquely memorable, even when new situations arise.”
– Ilija Jovanovic, Co-founder, Taiga Robotics
