Purpose Driven Innovation

Gregg Fraley

Do Purpose First, Select a Framework, Then Do Projects. Using a structured innovation framework is a project success factor. It happens through projects. The best innovators organize their efforts around projects. Without a Clear Purpose, Innovation Drifts Off Course.


Three Ways to Get Buy-in for Unsexy Projects

New Market Advisors

Every manager in the corporate world has a wishlist of projects that have been relegated to the back burner. Ultimately, those projects that aren’t exciting get deprioritized, regardless of the potential value they could add.

How to Incorporate Client Feedback into Your Product Roadmap and Plan for Iteration


Regardless of the project’s scope or your company’s size, product development requires client feedback. Top companies use client feedback as a roadmap to complete a project on time. Furthermore, there is no such thing as a project that is too small for a retrospective.

Scope Creep Fail Safes: Using PPM to Keep Your Projects On Time


Together, these minor changes can add up to a more stressful project and a weaker product. As projects become increasingly connected within companies and vendors, there are more opportunities for scope creep. Here’s how you can prevent this phenomenon and guard your projects against it.

The Benefits of Adaptable PPM Milestones


When projects have tight deadlines, project managers tend to be so focused on getting work done that they don’t stop to evaluate how processes can improve. A deliverable is a tangible and measurable outcome of a project, while a milestone is a checkpoint set throughout the plan.

Why innovation portfolios matter

RTI Innovation Advisors

Certainly companies are good at product portfolio and roadmaps, making decisions on how much to invest in older technologies, how much to invest in newer products and the roadmaps and versions that should be developed. Product roadmaps help us think through how a product will morph and add value over time, to remain valuable for customers by adding new capabilities or features. At this point in business evolution, every CEO understands the need for more innovation.

Scaled Agile Framework: what is and how it works


SAFe is an agile framework for development that has been gaining a lot of prominence among developers and managers of software projects. Each team does the backlog refinement for the next 2 to 3 weeks, but the approximate PI roadmap is there as a guide.

Innovation needs Time, Talent and Temperment

RTI Innovation Advisors

How then can we imagine that we can layer on another "important" task - an innovation project or activity - when these folks can barely keep their heads above water on the tasks they are reasonably good at? Even passionate people need to have guidance, and can work more effectively if they have a roadmap and a defined end goal. Invest in defining what a successful innovation roadmap looks like, and here's a hint.

Connecting Innovation is the New Order of Play

Paul Hobcraft

My opening roadmap for our individual future design is built on connecting and collaborating. Exploring innovation through more facilitated conversations and investigation, designing pathways, roadmaps, blueprints and recognizing pattern recognition.

Develop Your Annual Innovation Strategy


This type of planning makes innovation projects far more effective and helps ensure ongoing support from leadership. Consider the successful impacts that the completed innovation projects both quantitatively and qualitatively. Every innovation project has several stages.

Seven Innovation Fundamentals for Leaders

Gregg Fraley

Creativity, and creative ideas, are essential ingredients, and, without other fundamentals , like projects and implementation — great ideas are a waste of time. If you’re a leader, create the mandate , and get a diverse team organized to carry it out, in Projects.

A New Integrated Innovation Engagement System

Paul Hobcraft

It is constantly adapting to the needs of the project, not to the system.

Digital Innovation Strategy: 3 things to consider


As a result, adequate resources must be provided to the most beneficial innovation projects. With the modular software suite, the innovation strategy can be actively shaped and managed from trend , technology , idea and portfolio management all the way to technology and product roadmapping.

Unleash Your Visual Superpower!

Boxes and Arrows

We all sketch before we design, but too often the sketches go in a drawer when the project starts, often never to be seen again. One team I’ve worked with helps bridge this gap on strategic projects by maintaining an “experience roadmap.”

The Myth of the First-Mover Advantage: Why to be Smarter, Not Faster

New Market Advisors

But what often gets overlooked are the internal factors that can ultimately derail a project after a long period of investment. Has leadership from the relevant business unit been involved so that they’re not surprised by the project? Companies today worry too much about being fast.

Four Steps for the successful Implementation of a holistic Innovation Management


Experiences and best practices from other projects in the same industry or similar problems are incorporated. We differentiate between Innovation Management Frameworks, Trend/Technology/Startup Management Frameworks and Roadmapping Frameworks.

Designing at an Innovation Management Company


In lieu of having a larger design team, my role is to empower other departments to give feedback and criticism on projects I’m working on. This insight highlighted areas of weakness in our current product, and heavily influenced our roadmap moving forward.

Stop Building Products No One Wants: How to Experiment Your Way to Success

Moves the Needle

Their key responsibilities are to make sure that must-have features are prioritized, that project milestones are being hit, and that the project is staying on budget. Put that together with difficulties in tracking pertinent details of each project while being hit with a steady flow of new information from leadership and other key stakeholders, it becomes clear how a product roadmap might become muddied and lose focus.

How to be More Agile as Competitive Advantages Fade

7 Things Every CEO Should Know About Their Patents


Does our product roadmap include an IP roadmap and implications for financial projections? Just as a product roadmap and pipeline is the lifeblood of any company, the IP “roadmap” associated with these products needs to drive competitive advantage.

The Root Cause for Innovation Theater and How to Avoid It


Traction can be further deconstructed into 7 key metrics which can be used to consistently measure any idea at any stage against a traction roadmap. Think People, Not Funnels Yes, we all want more successful projects than failed projects.

Getting Started with Innovation Management


Practices such as project management and total quality were introduced decades ago and have matured over time. There are good examples of organisations who approach innovation strategically and systemically such as Shell and DSM but many more still view innovation as a project and as a result, it falls in the nice to have category. Start with Innovation projects immediately and don’t wait for the Innovation System to be completely implemented.

It’s a Hard Rock Life


I usually have a protagonist identified and a very rough roadmap of a plot that will deliver that character’s arc, but even before I begin the detailed process of outlining, I start a page of ideas I call “collecting.”

For Account Management, this adds a lot of value: we can better understand which customers are healthy and engaged in the product, we can quicker feedback to customers and a closed feedback loop, and easily set expectations about the product roadmap.
