Why We Are Entering A New Innovation Era.

Paul Hobcraft

Increasingly we are seeing a growing dissatisfaction on the impact that innovation is having; in growth, in returns, in market and customer impact. This dramatic change we will all be undergoing will have a significant impact on organizations innovation management design and it requires new connected thinking” I believe innovation is in a need for change and is coming very quickly to a refraction point in how it’s going to be managed.

What UX Designers Need to Know about Conversion Rate Optimization

Boxes and Arrows

The real problem many organizations face regarding conversion, is that content is often still considered “the stuff that goes into the design.” Putting content at center stage means changing some of the fundamental ways we think about content in the design process and how it helps conversion. There’s an old term in technical communication that refers to what happens when technological innovations force workers to re-skill: technoshock. 2011). UX Design. 2011).

Bypass the Naysayers

Destination Innovation

It was originally designed to store and play music. If the main route to market for your great innovation is blocked by naysayers committed to current products and methods, you should ask – who benefits most from this? Fifty Shades of Grey is a 2011 erotic romance novel by British author E. When we launched CDs, we did no market surveys and hired no consultants. Nobody gave us any assurance that there would be a market, but we believed it was a good product.”.

Digital transformation – the need to transform our innovation approaches

Paul Hobcraft

McKinsey in 2011 identified that 72% of transformation programs fail to deliver on their targets so there is an awful lot of thinking, planning and working through any transformation to make sure you end up with the 28% of the success stories. Digital disruption is the impact of digital technologies and business models on a company’s value proposition and market position. Let me finish on one example already successfully working in today’s market.

How Steve Jobs predicted what would cause Apple to lose its innovative edge

Idea to Value

Apple has long been seen as one of the world’s most innovative companies, but since the passing away of Steve Jobs in 2011 it has found it much more difficult to continue innovating. In the video, Jobs talks about the time he made a deal with Xerox to get an inside look at the technologies they were working on in the late 1970s, where Jobs first saw a working example of a graphical user interface using a mouse and menus.

How the current patent system actually hurts innovation (and how patent trolls are being fought)

Idea to Value

Originally, patents had a simple purpose: By filing a patent, an inventor or company showed how their new technology worked, in exchange for legal protection for the duration of the patent. The companies benefited by being able to attack anyone trying to copy their technology exactly (allowing them to exploit it) or by using it as a licensing tool (to benefit from other people using it through a contract). Sometimes much larger changes, or new products which define a market.

Our inabilities to adapt needs changing.

Paul Hobcraft

According to a survey by McKinsey in 2011, 72% of our transformation programs fail to deliver on their original targets. This does require a transformation of how we design, structure and bring together all the relevant part of the innovation process. This requires technology to be central to this different thinking, alongside a radical shift in how we see innovation. Adapting the business model to the needs and desires of the market.

And in practice, we combine three important ideas: design thinking, Lean Startup, and agile methodology. Methods are needed that focus on the customer experience, allow us to adapt to new information, and help us make decisions based on market-based evidence. What is Design Thinking? Design thinking is a way of problem solving that evolved out of applying the scientific method to the process of design. But design thinking alone is not enough.

Is Innovation in pharma broken?

The Future Shapers

Having an excellent R&D process and achieving market success with the technologies invented are two distinct things. Oversimplifying, R&D can be viewed as the process of converting financial resources into ideas and technologies, while innovation is the process of converting ideas and technologies back into money through business modelling and experimentation. The new technologies available in this day and age have a two-fold impact on the pharma industry.

It has been a while since Henry Mintzberg developed his influential work that made us aware of the importance of structures in organization design. To my opinion, Mintzberg’s work was a refreshing change to the world of organization design that until then has been largely influenced by Taylor’s Scientific Management Approach and Henry Ford’s efficiency-based adaptation of that. Structures are no longer of primary focus in design organizations. 2011).

33 Routes to Open Innovation

Open Innovation EU

It has been a while since Henry Chesbrough coined the term Open Innovation and formulated it’s definition: “combining internal and external ideas as well as internal and external paths to market to advance the development of new technologies.” The process of sourcing for external knowledge, patents or technology and to formalize the use of that information in your own innovation process. Route 10: Co-design. Route 15: Co-marketing.

Two-Sided Markets are not Platforms Van Alstyne and West I started my trip at the Marshall Van Alstyne and Geoff Parker conference at Boston University, which they dub the Platform Strategy Research Symposium. It was somewhat of a misnomer, as most of the economists who visited the conference (although not the hosts) took “platform” as a synonym for “two-sided market.” All of these are two-sided markets: Microsoft convinces gamers and game writers to join the platforms.

Persona Grata

Boxes and Arrows

In my experience as an interaction designer, I have come across many strategies and approaches to help increase the quality and consistency of my work, but none is more misunderstood or misused than that of the persona. Personas have been in use since the mid-1990s and since then have gained widespread awareness within the design community. As for adoption, many say they use personas, but few designers I’ve met actually use them as a part of their core creative process.

Disruptive technologies or innovations boost new business models that change the game of existing industries like the space industry (SpaceX), the music industry (Spotify), the film industry (Netflix) or the banking sector (FinTechs), just to name a few. Although many disruptive companies are based on new technologies, this path does not automatically lead to success. What really matters is the total package of relevant customer value and the smooth use of new technologies.

Is the iPad mobile?

Boxes and Arrows

I should have remembered where I was supposed to get off, but, like everyone else, I rely on technology to offload cognitive processes when I should be using my brain. The iPad hit the market about three years ago, quickly becoming disruptive by creating a user need where there previously was none. Do you design for users on the go? I design mobile apps for Cars.com. All evidence points to the fact that you should design for touch but consider content differently.

How relevant is a world where technology was so weak, so non-integrated? What about a student of technology? Why would it be important to dig into events such as the introduction of the Model A by Henry Ford in 1927 or the failure of IBM to react to Microsoft’s entry into the PC market in the early 1980’s? Why would they simply not be able to more effectively and easily move to a new market and opportunity as they occur? Newsweek (March 20, 2011), [link]. [2]

This is not to ignore that the work to bring it to market is done by a firm — only to focus on where the discovery or idea comes from originally.) My thinking was the transaction costs of bringing a (vertically integrated) producer innovation to market will mean that only the most valuable innovations will come to market. At first glance, this seems related to the Baldwin & von Hippel (2011) model of user vs. producer innovation.
