Whether its creating a next-practice innovation system from scratch or updating an existing innovation system with state-of-the-art processes, methods and tools, it's imperative to design and build a system that fits your company.
A proven framework, a vast toolbox of the best, tested innovation practices and the experience gained from working with hundreds of different companies insures the design-build of an innovation system that meets and exceeds your company's innovation goals and objectives.
The prime directive of all innovation systems is the production of a continuous stream of significant new opportunities that will drive growth. This is 'easy' to do for sustaining innovations, but for strategic opportunities that are disruptive, breakthrough, or horizon 2 or 3, it is more difficult.
Years of experience and hundreds of innovation projects that have each resulted in multiple strategic innovations have proven the effectiveness of the ADOPTS methodology. By collaborating with you, and teaching you the process, we can show you how to improve both the creation and acceptance of those game-changing opportunities that have been so difficult in the past.
BUSINESS MODEL INNOVATION
A business model defines the rules your company, and the ecosystem it operates in, plays by. All too often, these rules are not explicitly listed or understood – by you or your competitors.
Being able to identify the existing ‘rules of the game’, and consciously changing them, is the key to business model innovation. From a business model canvas to a detailed ‘go-to-market’ experiment, innovating your business model is a true source of innovative advantage.
An important but often overlooked aspect of success is transforming your internal operations for a new world.
Operational innovation identifies opportunities to change your company’s behavior – everything from manufacturing methods to new operational and organizational approaches – to compete in the future world.
The world is being transformed by digital technology. Software is truly ‘eating the word’ and it is causing major disruption and providing major opportunities.
Many consultants can tell you what these technologies are and how to use them, but precious few can help you find the transformational opportunities that come from these game changing developments.
