At its core, a mission-based approach affords UL the time and space to build a bespoke innovation engine; one that will enable increased organisational agility and responsiveness as it matures. It will require the development of a strong governance model that ensures collective accountability and responsibility, all while enabling experimentation and informed risk-taking.  

As a new entity, the Mission Lab will be operated by a dedicated team with the mandate to fulfil the following roles: 

  1. Orchestrate and manage the mission portfolio 

  1. Act as cross-pollinators between mission teams 

  1. Provide resource and support for mission teams 

  1. Develop novel mission-based methods and tools
