3 Questions You Need to Ask Before Creating an Innovation Roadmap

Leapfrogging

In January 1996, two Stanford PhD students started working on a research project that would change the world. They nicknamed their project BackRub, because it checked backlinks of websites to determine their importance. Today, that project has become known as Google and its two founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, have completely changed the way the world works. It can even be presented in an online dashboard or subscription software platform.

Innovation Management Software: Connect Creativity and Collaboration

Planview Spigit

While most innovation management software makes it possible for teams and organizations to gather and iterate on ideas, the question you must ask is, how do you ensure the best ideas become reality? To help you in your search for the right innovation management platform, we have compiled a checklist of what to look for in an innovation management platform, complete with project collaboration and project delivery capabilities. Ideation + Delivery = Innovation.

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

AureaWorks

Regardless of the project’s scope or your company’s size, product development requires client feedback. Without involving these stakeholders in the project, the design and development teams will inevitably double their workload when the prototypes — or worst-case, the finished products — are returned for adjustments. Top companies use client feedback as a roadmap to complete a project on time.

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

AureaWorks

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. Even if you’re only adding a few hours or days to a project, that’s time that you could be spending making money on additional projects. Continue Updating Your Project Timelines.

The Benefits of Adaptable PPM Milestones

AureaWorks

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. These small markers give project managers the opportunity to step back, evaluate a project and make any necessary adjustments for improvement. As you plan your project, it’s important to differentiate between the three key elements of any project: a milestone, a deliverable and a task.

A New Integrated Innovation Engagement System

Paul Hobcraft

I had written in a piece “ Connecting Innovation is the New Order of Play ” we need to apply five aspects in a new innovation roadmap, one that is required to be built on connecting and collaborating continuously: Exploring innovation through more facilitated conversations and investigation, designing pathways, roadmaps, blueprints and recognizing pattern recognition. It is constantly adapting to the needs of the project, not to the system.

Idea to Value

Entrepreneurs too often fall into the trap of “me too innovation” by trying to create the next social media network, “Uber for X”, or perhaps most recently, the latest chatbot software. As a result, some, often large, companies spend a lot of time and money on basic research or foundational R&D , only to find themselves having a hard time commercializing those projects, until they eventually run out of money or patience.

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. Can we look at our roadmap and answer: Why us, why now, why this?
