Innovation consulting focuses on uniqueness, while classic consulting relies on the implementation of standardized patterns. In comparison to classic consulting, innovation consulting offers a whole range of advantages:

Differentiation In The Market

How does Innovation Consulting work?

How does innovation consulting work in practice? In innovation consulting, the focus is on increasing the ability to innovate in the business. This results from first-hand experience that company employees gain on their own. Backing and support from the company management is the basis for such autonomous behavior.

The entire process of innovation consulting is divided into four phases:

1. Warm-up – Connect Instead Of Rushing Ahead
1. Warm-up – Connect instead of rushing ahead

At this stage, it is important to build mutual trust between the management and the consulting team.

2. Pilot – Grow It Instead Of Forcing It
2. Pilot – Grow it instead of forcing it

Every company is different, and not every recipe for success can easily be applied everywhere. An innovation pilot project helps to identify the company’s peculiarities in terms of innovative capability, while at the same time creating first presentable, inspiring innovation successes.

3. Anchor – Establish Instead Of Deploying
3. Anchor – Establish instead of deploying

Innovation must arise naturally. Working on the innovation system and the nine fields of action makes it possible to achieve this goal. The ability to innovate. The ability of the organization and its employees to achieve regular, ever greater and more successful innovations is the focus of this phase.

4. Accelerate – Reinforce Instead Of Fizzling Out
4. Accelerate – Reinforce instead of fizzling out

Innovations supported by innovation consulting are only half the battle. They are comparable to driving lessons. Sure: You get from A to B. But sooner or later, friends and fans should be sitting in the car with you, not the driving instructor. And your car must be a different one! This is done by establishing moderators and innovators in the company. Specific training, selective coaching and mutual collaboration on the big chunks. This is because an unclouded, external point of view is a rare plant of irreplaceable value. Nobody has managed yet to cultivate that inside a company.
