upriver Innovations - social technologies for adaptive organizations
Our mission is a simple one: Building adaptive capacity within and among Canadian organizations. Canada's future success depends on building adaptive capacity. Relying on the cyclical nature of commodity prices is unsustainable and unpredictable. This applies to all sectors. We support adaptation that is collaborative rather than owned and situated rather than abstract. The world is becoming increasingly competitive and complex and the basis for future competitiveness is knowledge based. Building adaptive and innovative capacity is not simply a technical problem. It requires a culture that rewards experimentation, processes that support the rapid dissemination of knowledge, and development of individuals to facilitate spaces where innovation can happen. That's where we come in. We equip teams and organizations with practical social technologies that support innovation and improve competitiveness. Our clients are concerned with the 'what' of innovation. We provide the 'how'.
