In the Innolytics® software’s so-called “process manager” you can configure the innovation process according to your needs.
The “Roadmap” menu item is located in the Process Manager. Here you can specify which elements you would like to include in the roadmap.
Enter for example:
- Completion of the concept,
- Presentation to the management,
- Development of prototype,
- Prototype test,
- Revision of the prototype,
- Presentation of results to the management
You can determine whether innovation teams can deviate from the defined roadmap or not. The template for an Innovation Roadmap has been created.
In the next step, you determine in which phase of your innovation process the roadmap should be active. Already in the first phase of idea submission? Or only later, when it enters the concept development phase or even the implementation phase? If you use different methods of innovation management (e.g. CIP, idea management, open innovation, etc.), you can define different innovation roadmaps for different methods.
You may be driving different innovation projects with different logic at the same time. For example, the development of a new product, a digital business model and the development of a joint business model with a partner company. All three projects require a different logic for milestone planning. The Innolytics® software allows you to define an individual innovation roadmap for each project, which takes into account the particularities of these projects.
