Execute and manage your innovation strategy
After opportunity identification, idea evaluation and concept creation comes the hard part: where and when shall we position our innovations?
Roadmaps are a widely used method in strategic planning. In practice, the use of roadmaps is mostly driven by solutions and technologies. But only an integrated view on future markets, products, services and business models, future technologies and resources allow for a stringent planning and implementation of innovations. Roadmaps visualize and contextualize dependencies in innovation implementation. The aggregation of several individual roadmaps to an overall, integrated innovation roadmap enables a top-down and bottom-up strategic planning for the next 3-20 years. In order to track and guide the innovation implementation with roadmaps, companies need
- a roadmapping framework defining dependencies and data objects
- a roadmapping process to update, synchronize and simulate roadmaps in various business units and divisions
- roles to manage and coordinate all roadmapping activities
- a methodology to connect innovation roadmaps with PLM and the front end of innovation
- interfaces between strategy, roadmapping and product management
- reporting formats to keep track of updates and potential disorders
