Smart Innovation Management
Aside from the normal elements of a business case and go-to-market plan, our experience is that many core design, management, financial, planning and production innovation criteria are frequently overlooked or ignored. So we’ve captured our experience into a tried-and-tested toolkit, Smart Innovation Management (SIM).
SIM is the bedrock of our work supporting clients. We use it as an assessment tool to help clients plan and accelerate the dissemination of their inventions; to provide training and insights into innovation management; and to guide in the work we do supporting new companies, services and ideas coming to market, whether in the public, private or social enterprise sectors.
With SIM, innovations are assessed against a ten-factor structure, generating a series of critical questions to be addressed. Experienced, serial innovators providing independent input and advice, facilitate the assessment. Then, looking at the implications of the ten factors together, an overall “Business Model Shift” (BMS) score is generated. Innovations with large BMS scores can have huge, often disruptive impact on a market or customer- but need very careful planning and management to succeed. Low BMS scores may indicate that the innovation is not compelling or significant enough to be sustained or differentiated – and therefore more work is needed on the proposition. The BMS score from the SIM process highlights further issues that must be addressed for successful, sustainable business change to be supported by the innovation.
We are happy to discuss arrangements for other organisations to use SIM too – to help manage investment portfolios, improve go-to-market plans, drive research agendas – or working in partnership with smart health science in new markets for our services.See More About Smart Innovation Management
