Innovation Management

What is Innovation management?

Ideas are the root of innovation: By collaboratively collecting and evaluating ideas we can identify new products, business models or operational improvements. Diversity of opinions, views and knowledge is the key to developing innovative solutions. In the Foresight Strategy Cockpit users can collaboratively discuss and rate ideas and other insights. New ideas can be easily created, edited and updated and if necessary, external knowledge can be included through survey methods.

The Foresight Strategy Cockpit Innovation management module

With its Innovation Management module, the Foresight Strategy Cockpit (FSC) helps your company to organize new and existing ideas, analyze and evaluate them and put them into practice. Take a joint look at all the decisive factors that determine the realization and chances of success of your entrepreneurial ideas. Our customizable tool enables users to freely adjust evaluation criteria, user rights and role management and to individualize for different projects. Therefore, you can create individual and different evaluation criteria for different idea projects and can decide which employees have access to which project.

Ideas are innovative consequences classified within a certain context, such as time, emphasizing their respective advantages and disadvantages. Idea Analysis, like Trend Analysis, evaluates ideas using as many individual opinions as possible. Evaluation criteria are determined beforehand by an administrator. Ideas can be linked with qualitative or quantitative information to boost and strengthen their positions. The group evaluation results are reported in a Rating Matrix, Radar, or Portfolio according to statistical calculations.

Collaborative idea analysis

Evaluate ideas in your team by using customizable evaluation criteria. Invite external experts and let them participate in the process with our Survey method. Observe the whole process in real-time. The System automatically processes individual ratings into consolidated and meaningful data.

Data-driven scouting & monitoring

With the visualization options of the FSC it is easy to interpret results and decide transparently which ideas should prevail over others. On this basis, corresponding implementation strategies can be formulated. All insights created can finally be exported as ready-to-use reports (as .pdf or .docx) just by the click of a button.
