Back in 1994, we set out to understand INNOVATION and INVENTIVE THINKING at a much deeper level. Our goal was to make “innovation” much more efficient and practical for typical product development teams in ANY industry. Through extensive research on innovation best-practices and dozens of iterations, we have refined a process into what we now call “Systematic Innovation”, an 8-step “framework” that is centered around Value, Quality, and Inventive Thinking.
Our process integrates well over three dozen technological and psychological “best practices” used by industry leaders. This process proactively creates New Value for your customers. Learn exactly when, how, and where to use all the tools & methods in the TOOLBOX above. Contact us for details.
Above this, to the right of the TOOLBOX is a short video that introduces the basics of our 8-step “Systematic Innovation” process. With clients on 5 continents, ask us about our project based training, facilitation, workshops, coaching and webinars on any or all aspects of our 8-step Systematic Innovation process. Questions welcomed and encouraged!
