The process

6 steps to develop your innovation strategy

1. Vision & Goals

Every innovation strategy has to build on the vision of the company. Only the goals that will bring you closer to this vision are important. The innovation values and character of the company set the framework for the right innovation strategy. Having the same understanding and vision will give you guideline and priority when you need to decide on further actions.

  • Define your vision
  • Define SMART goals
  • Explore your values and key strengths
  • Lay the groundwork for a successful future

2. Stakeholders

Getting the right people on the train and allocating resources are one of the biggest challenges for innovation projects. In order to overcome pitfalls it is very important to involve decision makers and business unit leaders in the program selection early on.  How relevant are certain players for success and are they willing to support you?

  • Define internal and external stakeholders
  • Find your promoters
  • Get the resources
  • Count on important partners (startups, universities, …)
  • Interview your stakeholders to define their needs and expectations

3. Innovation Portfolio

We know that successful companies follow a well-balanced portfolio between incremental and disruptive innovations. However, many companies fail in doing so and typically focus on incremental innovation or R&D activities. Changing your logo or font type sometimes won’t do the trick.

  • Incremental Innovation
  • Radical Innovation
  • Enabling technology
  • Positioning

4. Innovation Readiness

An innovation process has many opportunities and hurdles that might cause you to stumble. Are you constantly looking for trends in your market, are you able to pick the best ideas from your employees, do you have a structured process to build pilot projects and successfully launch them? Look at all the steps necessary and learn from best practice examples.

  • Evaluate your innovation life cycle
  • Find weak spots and strengths
  • Learn from best practice examples
  • Rate your status quo
  • Derive actionable tasks

5. Innovation Activities

You know what goals you want to achieve, what people you have to get on board and estimated whether you are an expert or rookie in the huge playing field of innovation. Now it’s time to design the first pilot projects and your innovation activities. Depending on your overall goals and status quo there are multiple options: Startup Cooperation, Open Innovation, Intrapreneurship, …

What is the ROI of your innovation activities? A question that we sometimes forget to ask while dreaming of the next big thing or unicorns. Make sure that your innovation activities fit with your budget and resources.

  • Prioritize your activities
  • Plan your budget & resources
  • Define Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)
