Innovation is challenging, without a doubt. Too many projects fail, not on the process, technology or strategy dimensions, but on the people dimension. Method Teaming can ensure you don’t make any mistakes on the people dimension. It will help you identify the right people and bring them in to the process at exactly the right time. It will also ensure that they know why they’re there, what is required of them and how they can contribute to the team.
Here are 8 advantages when you select your innovation team by their talent and manage them through the project using Method Teaming© Innovation Process:
1. Assured flow of on-demand creativity and ideas
To kickstart the innovation process, Method Teaming will discover the natural strategists who can deliver the necessary ideation. Natural strategists are 8% of the population but they often ‘hide out’ in other roles. You’ve probably got them. You just don’t know who they are and, very often, neither do they.
2. Smaller and more effective innovation teams
You only need the right people, not the mob. We’ll help you identify the people who can make the difference so the rest can get back to work.
3. Understanding how to change the innovation team
You don’t need all of the team all of the time. There are distinct phases as the innovation process moves forward. We help you spend your people’s time wisely.
4. Superior deployment of creative talent
You may have more than one creative. We’ll show them the nuances in what they have to contribute. That will help them get the best out of each other.
5. Smoother transition from ideation to engineering
The ideation and engineering worlds are entirely different. It’s easy for great ideas to be lost in translation in the innovation process. We’ll help you find the ‘bridge’ between the two who has a foot in both camps.
6. Early and effective socialization of innovation
The rest of the organization has to buy in to the innovation. Otherwise it will flounder for lack of acceptance. We can help you identify the ‘networkers’ who will socialize and win support for the process.
7. Market-centric, saleable innovation.
Every innovation has customers, either internal or external. If they’re external we’ll help ensure that the innovation process delivers something that has a market and customers ready to buy.
8. Driving innovation from “if and when” to “what and now”
Get immediate clarity on your vital innovation. Make it happen now knowing it will work out of the box. Method Teaming will bring the right minds together and focus them using smart collaboration.
