Guide and Best Practices

Innovation is the process used to generate new and unique ideas or solutions and converting them to products or services that can add value to the customer.

Innovation Process

  • Identify and define the problem that should be the focus of your solution. Conduct thorough research to gather enough information on it. You can rely on surveys and interviews to reach out to your customers.
  • Gather a team of experts and start looking for solutions. Organize the ideas you come across during the brainstorming session in a brainstorming map template.
  • Share the template with everyone, even remote employees. Any changes they make to the map will appear in real time.
  • You can generate ideas to create something brand new or modify an existing product or service by adding new features. However, make sure that the idea you select is profitable to your company.
  • Create a low-budget prototype of your product to test it out before actual production. This way you can identify where you should make improvements.
  • Test your prototype with a selected group of potential customers or stakeholders. Their opinions can be used to further refine your product.
  • Once you launch your product, you can monitor the response from your audience and use it to continue improving your product or service.
