How do companies manage their innovation and inventory portfolio? – We asked our community

Wie managen Unternehmen Ihr Innovations- und Bestandsportfolio? – Wir haben bei unserer Community nachgefragt

In der Worksession „Explore vs. Exploit“ im Rahmen unseres Innovation Day diskutierten wir das Management von Innovations- und Bestandportfolios anhand des Explore vs. Exploit Ansatzes, basierend auf den Forschungsarbeiten von Alexander Osterwalder.

In der spannenden und offenen Diskussion hat sich schnell gezeigt, dass viele Unternehmen bereits aktiv in Innovative Produkte, Dienstleistungen und Geschäftsmodelle investieren. Dies ist von elementarer Bedeutung, um nachhaltige Innovationen stetig weiterzuentwickeln und das eigene Unternehmen (ständig) neu zu erfinden.

Obwohl die nachhaltigen Innovationen von bestehenden Geschäftsmodellen immer mehr an Gewicht gewinnen, kommen viele Unternehmen in ihren Märkten mit dieser Aufgabe noch nicht schnell genug oder mit entsprechendem Erfolg voran.
Fehlende Werkzeuge / Methodenkenntnisse sowie das durchgängige Commitment sind hierfür oftmals
eine mögliche Ursache. Insbesondere dem Top-Management fehlt häufig aber auch die Zeit und der Raum, um aktiv an Innovationen zu arbeiten.

Unser Fazit hierzu:
Das Management des Innovations- und Bestandsportfolios muss in einem Unternehmen eine Priorität haben, um sich nachhaltig erfolgreich für die Zukunft aufzustellen. Neben den inkrementellen Innovationen (Verbesserungen von Services, Effizienzinnovationen) bedarf es an Mut und Weitblick, neue marktgerichtete Geschäftsmodellinnovationen anzugehen.

Wir sind gespannt, auf euren Input – besteht in eurem Unternehmen die Möglichkeit, Zeit mit Innovationen zu verbringen?

Was macht eine erfolgreiche Innovation aus? –  Wir waren mit unserer innovativen Community im Austausch

Was benötigt man, um eine Innovation oder eine Geschäftsmodelltransformation erfolgreich zu gestalten?

Mit u.a. dieser Frage hat sich unsere Community aus Entscheidern*innen, Machern*innen und Expert*innen der Digitalwirtschaft in einer interaktiven Worksession am Innovation Day in Stuttgart beschäftigt.
Einer der zentralen Punkte und Erkenntnisse der Diskussion:

 #Führung und #Kultur sind die wichtigsten Kernelemente, um Innovationen und Geschäftsmodelltransformationen langfristig erfolgreich zu machen!

Der Weg von der Effizienzkultur der letzten 30 Jahre hin zu einer echten, gelebten Innovationskultur ist ein Schlüssel zum Erfolg, wenngleich dies sowohl Zeit, Geduld und eine Änderung des Mindsets bedarf.

Zusätzliche interessante Erkenntnis: Obwohl alle Unternehmen in ihrer Branche langjährig erfolgreiche Geschäftsmodelle betreiben, schätzen die Experten*innen es so ein, dass nachhaltige Innovation insbesondere
Methoden- und Technologie-Know-How und Erfahrung über #digitale #Geschäftsmodelle erfordern und dies bisher nicht tiefgreifend in den Unternehmen verankert ist.
Diese Erkenntnis bestätigt uns als NOVAZOON natürlich genau in unserem Geschäftsmodell des Innovation & Venture Builders, der sowohl Best-practices als auch Deep-Tech Skills mitbringt.

Wie ist euer Unternehmen aufgestellt? Sind Eure Mitarbeiter*innen/ Kollegen*innen an den Innovationstätigkeiten involviert? Wie meistert Ihr die Reise hin zur Innovationskultur?
Folgt uns auf LinkedIn und teilt eure Erfahrungen mit uns!

NOVAZOON Innovation Day in Stuttgart – our innovative community in exchange

Last week we had a great exchange with many members of our community from industry, business and digital business as part of our NOVAZOON Innovation Day in Stuttgart.

In a relaxed atmosphere, we not only discussed current challenges of the digital transformation of leading industrial and service companies, but also actively worked on new business ideas and cooperation approaches.

In the World Café format, we focused on sustainable innovation in established companies, with the focus on (constantly) reinventing your own company and learning from the community’s innovative approaches.

Mathias Weßelmann, Managing Director of Phoenix Contact Smart Business GmbH (proficloud.io)
As part of the keynote program, Michael Kimmig, Program Manager Fast.Forward.Digital, Grenke AG , and our Managing Director Bastian Deck showed the main challenges of digital transformation in their companies and gave exciting insights into solution approaches, methods and modern forms of organization.
Many thanks again for your input!

Key learnings from the event :

  • Nowadays there is no lack of ideas or innovative expansion approaches for traditional business models, but the experience, especially in the implementation of digital business models, is not sufficiently developed.
  • A flexible form of organization and an open mindset practiced “from the top” are required in order to establish sustainable change and the innovation culture associated with it.
  • Companies are opening up to open innovation and cooperation approaches in order to address future business potential – this is increasingly happening in joint ventures and mergers across company boundaries.

 

We are curious about your opinion: Can the successful transformation of established companies actually succeed? What are your company’s approaches to this? Please write to us about your experiences.

NOVAZOON as a companion to a scientific work as part of the lecture “Industrial Concept Development” with the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences, at the MMT faculty

As part of the “Industrial Concept Development” lecture at the MMT faculty of the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences, the mechatronics students Leonard Rempel and Mario Stolz are working on a scientific paper in the “Health Tech area”.

The app connects various data source systems with each other in order to generate new medical knowledge from the data obtained.
This knowledge is used to support patients in the healing process.


The aim here is to relieve medical facilities.

The focus of the work is on research into the connection of various wearables such as smartwatches or chest straps as well as medical devices such as blood pressure monitors.
Here it is necessary to transfer the data obtained and to apply further processing with the help of artificial intelligence.

 

Another part of the work is the development of concrete possible solutions for the connection of selected data sources.

We look forward to working with the students at Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences and are excited to see the results.

Our business model challenge

When was the last time you worked on and challenged your business model?

Last Wednesday we took the time to review, analyze and update our own business model. We are continuously developing our status and have established a 3-month cycle for this. In this way, we ensure that we always reflect on current developments and process them as part of a business model analysis.

For a long time we have all been able to come together and take part in the workshop personally. Finally gummy bears, biscuits and chocolate to share in the innovation work again!
