Many single factors combined lead to successful innovations. A detailed formula for innovation success is just one step. Afterwards: start, stumble, continue and reflect. Special Trainings and Workshops help when you start from scratch. Innovation Coaching helps to reflect your approach or re-enter the project after a phase of uncertainties or failures.
What is Innovation Coaching?
People in innovation sometimes need support with specific issues. That is also, maybe especially, true for innovation veterans. This is where the innovatio coach steps in. When we say “Coaching”, Mentoring is also covered. The persons getting coached are both the ones that implement the innovation and those who boosts and leads innovations. So we are talking about the innovation manager, a product manager, a member of the development department or the executive director.
The Benefit of Innovation Coaching
Many companies are faced with the challenge of securing the future and adapting to new market conditions and meeting changing customer needs. Innovations that are successful on the market are the most important tool for this. However, bringing completely new products or business models successfully to the market is not yet daily business for many companies. There are no established routines.
Innovation coaching accompanies you on this journey through rough terrain. Numerous companies have already gone through this journey. Some more, some less successfully. Do you need idea management? How do you put together a successful innovation team? Should there be financial incentives? How much time and how much freedom make sense in an innovation project? Which techniques, methods and principles are suitable in a specific case? In innovation coaching you will learn what to look out for, what you should definitely do and what you can safely do without.
Typical use cases for Innovation Coaching
- Ambiguities with finding the right way through a project
- Idea Generation
- Insufficient realization of existing ideas
- Missing proactiveness within the team
- Structure in the development of complex technologies
