What is innovation activity?
Innovation activity is learning, activity and insight.
By learning, we mean: Adopting a common language and operational culture, getting acquainted with various operating models and tools, and peer learning from other organisations.
By activity, we mean: Familiarisation with theoretical background, testing of new operational models and tools, as well as concrete utilisation of these models and tools in honing your development idea – “learning by doing”. We have around 30 tested tools at our disposal.
By insight, we mean: Awareness of the significance of innovation culture components, assessment of the strengths and development areas of your own operational models, identification of operational models and tools suitable for you, and bringing new thinking to bear on the development of innovation action in your organisation.
Profitable business operations are always underpinned by successful innovation
Business-oriented and systematic leadership of innovation often seems difficult. Successful innovative organisations focus attention
- on the strategic planning of innovation activities
- on assessment of and indicators for innovation activities
- on innovation processes and tools
- on people skills and good practices
Innoman will help you innovate systematically. We provide the tools needed to improve the productivity of innovation. We will work together with you to produce innovations in the areas of new products, services, business models, processes and ecosystems. At the same time, your company will learn effective tools for future innovation activities.
We have built an Innovation Path™ for you
The purpose of the Innovation Path coaching sessions is to introduce your organisation to practices, know-how and skills that make effective innovation action possible. The modules in our coaching programme complement one another, and we can customise them to produce focused training sessions or longer training programmes. We will also apply our process tools to facilitating your organisation’s own development projects. Coaching can be introduced within the framework of coaching programmes or as separate workshops, according to the customer’s needs.
Our three different Innovation Paths™:
- Benchmarking path: Several companies work together and in parallel, learning from one another
- Enterprise-based path: An internal coaching programme for a company
- Ecosystem path: A group representing your company’s ecosystem is assembled to develop common business models, processes and the goods/services it delivers.
