Everything starts with a great idea. But without great execution great ideas are just … well ideas. As with any strategy, the power lies in the execution. Innovation should be part of any strategy, certainly in this time of age. Taking an idea and turning it into a great product or service isn’t an easy thing to do. If it were easy, everybody would be doing it.
Innovation means you create products and services your customer love. Starting from market needs, in-depth customer research, customer journey mapping, customer touch point analysis, technological feasibility, developing concepts and MVP’s companies need to seek sustainable growth opportunities. New products and services might need new sales channels, new business models. In academic fields a lot of work has been done in trying to come up with working models to assure fast and cheap innovation. Design thinking methodology, agile innovation, lean start-up innovation, stage/gate project management tools, … all these are the playing field of entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs. Together with developers (hardware and software), product owners, scrum master they lead the way to turn great ideas into great products and services. Together with the product, segment and market managers they are responsible for turning ideas into product and services, into winning value proposition that make companies grow. Tools such as ‘The business Model canvas®’ are common used in this field of expertise.
Innovation is a risky business (95% of product innovations fail! [Nobel, 2011]), therefor investing in resources that can help you derisk your innovation as much as possible (as the saying goes: fail often, fail soon, fail fast) is worthwhile investigating.
