  15. Innovation Excellence – Idea Management Are those companies more successful that involve their customers into the development of new products and services? "If I had asked my clients what they wanted they would have answered 'A faster horse'!" Henry Ford, 1863 – 1947 "It seems that just about every industry on mapright now is being reinvented from the customer backwards" Gary Hamel, 2002 "... users rather than manufacturers are typically the initial developersof what later become commercially significant new products and processes" Eric von Hippel, MIT, 2002

  18. Innovation Excellence – Idea Management In order to meet the challenges new approaches and methods are required Ideageneration Conceptdevelopment Implementation Launch Analyze emotional needs Involvelead-user Focus groups Quality Function Deployment Conjoint analyses Rapid Prototyping Toolkits Product clinics Next Generation Road mapping Empathic design Communities Positioning models …

  19. Innovation Excellence – Idea Management In many markets decisions are made emotionally – ratio provides only the reasons Decision hierarchy product purchase 2. Objective reasons for product use Ratio Emotion • Security • Wishes • Dreams 1. Decision based on emotional use

  20. Innovation Excellence – Idea Management For the analysis of emotional factors in case of purchase decision new methods are required • Non-verbal communication prevails;"people think in pictures, not in words" • Better assimilation in the brain and easier activation of the brain through non-verbal signals • Traditional analysis methods (focus groups, questionnaires etc.) strongly "verbo-centric" • New methods with approaches to non-verbal articulation of needs; linkage between psychoanalysis, arts, literature and neurobiology

  21. Innovation Excellence – Idea Management "Zaltman Methaphor-Eliciation Technique" Example ZMET Project definition • Object of investigation • 12 – 30 participants "Good tasting energy provider" • Pictures with strong association to product • Pictures: press clippings, picture books, brochures etc. "Picture"-collection Digital collages • In-depth interviews • Point out metaphors "Symbol of good old times" Further examples: • Translate collages into idea landscapes • Interpretation Idea landscape • Arthritis drugs • Buick • Motorola security system

  22. Innovation Excellence – Idea Management For each market there are lead-users having today already needs they can articulate but which are developed only tomorrow by the broad market • Early and intensive customer involvement leads to innovation success(Arthur D. Little Studies 2004) • Well-known methods for the analysis of customer needs focus on broad customer groups in well-known markets • Despite great efforts hardly any impulses for real innovations "Our clients want all the same thing: more service, better quality and low prices at the same time" • Lead users have today already needs that the total market will develop only tomorrow • Lead-user strongly profit from the development of new products or services Conclusion: Identify lead-users and involve them closely into the product-/ service development

  23. Innovation Excellence – Idea Management The lead-user approach can be applied in markets of industrial- and consumer goods + Pilots on wet roads ABS-System + Bikers in the mountains Mountain-bike Customerswith sensitive hair + Proteinshampoo

  24. Innovation Excellence – Idea Management A critical success factor is a structured search process Real-life example Infection protection in operating room • Search field • Project targets and team Project start Cost pressure Hygienerequirements Antibiotics resistance • Most significant trends in search field • Lead-user criteria Trend analysis Minimal budgets External stress … • Screening or networking search Lead-user search Surgeons in devel. countries MASH units Make-upartist • Lead-user workshop • Concept development and assessment • 2 new products • Radically new approach for infection control Conceptdevelopment Result

  25. Innovation Excellence – Innovation Strategy Top innovators explicitly link strategy and clear innovation objectives Strategic Planning of Product / Technology Development Clear product or service strategy Tight relation between innovation objectives and business strategy Defined core competencies Distinct product and/or technology platforms Strategic make-or-buy decisions 2 3 4 5 Very high importance Low importance Source: Arthur D.
