Process

An agile innovation process is leaner and faster.

Agile innovation processes are not only fast, effective and motivating but also bring companies forward. These objectives are usually only reachable with integrated, efficient innovation processes. As innovations are per se new, existing processes might need to be adapted in order to reach the defined objectives. In other cases, companies seek to establish a central innovation management and aim to create the prerequisites with the right interfaces and processes.

Development and market cycles change rapidly – can current project structures keep up with this?

It took many years of development in the past before television sets came to the market. Today it takes six months. Faster and leaner processes are becoming more and more critical for success. The classical, sequential stage-gate-process is rapidly replaced by dynamic and agile innovation processes.

Designing agile innovation processes
Process design based on defined objectives and requirements: shorter development time, reductions of failure rates, optimised cross-departmental co-operation. Against the background of changing framework conditions, only a targeted adaptation of individual process areas is often necessary:  modern materials, new markets and channels, new technologies.

Executing agile innovation processes
Based on agile development processes such as SCRUM and DESIGN THINKING, we conduct with your team targeted innovation processes whilst ensuring a method transfer to your employees. Thus, we develop on one side new business models and concrete product-, service- and process-innovations, on the other side we also support you with the improvement of your methodological knowledge. As a result, you receive a perfect introduction to agile innovation development and co-operation.
