Presentation: "Lean Innovation"

Time: Thursday 10:20 - 11:10 / Location: Pendulum

In today's time innovation projects are huge, they're getting more and more complex. The idea for a minimum viable product might be quite simple, but often there are lots of dependencies and many stakeholder groups need to be involved. If you look at Business Model Innovation for example the key success factor is not only the value proposition itself, but more and more orchestrating the echo system. Which customer segments do we address via our channels. What key activities do we do ourselves and what does a partner or supplier?

During the presentation I will sketch typical pains in innovation projects and present the speed creation framework as a possible solution to foster cross-organisational collaboration and to strictly focus on the customers needs. Note that the presentation addresses ICT and non-ICT topics. Also it addresses entrepreneurs as well as intrapreneurs in small & medium enterprises or corporarte companies.
