Innovation is Evolution

Innovation is Evolution | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it
Many companies feel that innovation programs, innovation labs, and other innovation initiatives are great in good times, but are superfluous in tough times. The number of times I’ve heard that firms are axing or “re-purposing” their innovation personnel to work on “core product” or “core services” when times are tough, are legion.

Too often, however, the refocusing on the core business in a time when trouble is striking doesn’t turn things around – it simply accelerates the death spiral. You need to evolve out of the crisis.

7 Essential Lessons From The Harvard Innovation Lab

7 Essential Lessons From The Harvard Innovation Lab | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it

Over the years, Goldstein has learned some important lessons about how to create an environment where innovation thrives. Here are seven essentials.

 

Be A Sponge

 

Innovators are intellectually curious and thrive on absorbing new information that may help their ideas. The I-lab holds regular programming and has a mentoring program to help innovators learn as much as they want to learn. Even if you don’t have the benefit of the I-lab, continually seeking out the information you need and people who can teach you essential skills and information is an important part of being innovative, she says.

The Frugal Way to Grow

The Frugal Way to Grow | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it

Frugal innovation is associated with resource-constrained and low-income emerging economies such as those of Africa, India, and China, but we have recently seen the rise of frugal innovation efforts in developed nations including the U.S. and in Europe. These are not primarily cost-cutting measures, a response to financial constraint or a tepid economy. Rather, across the developed world, companies are beginning to use frugal innovation as a growth strategy. They are introducing a larger lineup of new products and services, often with greater economic and social value, at a much lower cost and using fewer natural and financial resources. Their goal is not to create cheap offerings. They want to create more effective offerings that draw people in with their simplicity, while also cutting down on the use of various resources.

 

It turns out that the four key attributes of frugal innovation — affordability, simplicity, quality, and sustainability — are exactly the qualities that customers in mature markets want most. This makes frugal innovation a viable growth strategy for companies expanding in those markets, not just in emerging economies.

Making innovation work

Making innovation work | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it

Today, innovation is central to advanced and emerging economies alike; in many OECD countries, firms invest as much in the knowledge-based assets that drive innovation, such as software, databases, research and development, firm-specific skills and organisational capital, as they do in physical capital, such as machinery, equipment or buildings.

Innovation is the Future of Marketing and Customer Experience

Innovation is the Future of Marketing and Customer Experience | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it

If you take a step back and look at the topline trends, the main focus of these innovation centers is also examining the deeper understanding of customer needs [35%]. That’s wonderful as people should always come first. It also seems to me that these innovation centers have things backwards. It should never be technology first. Without knowing the expectations, behaviors and values of digital customers, innovative technology is left without purpose. And, without purpose, technology is merely a means without an end. I learned this time and time again in my work in studying digital transformation. .

Personas – Why and How You Should Use Them | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it
Personas are fictional characters, which you create based upon your research in order to represent the different user types that might use your service, product, site, or brand in a similar way. Creating personas will help you to understand your users’ needs, experiences, behaviours and goals. Creating personas can help you step out of yourself.

Student’s Faucet Design Saves Water By Swirling It Into Beautiful Patterns

Student’s Faucet Design Saves Water By Swirling It Into Beautiful Patterns | Front End Innovation | Scoop.it

Simin Qiu, the creator and designer of this concept designed the faucet such that it passes water via a double turbine .The latter rotates as the water courses through it thus bring about a lattice of elaborate and beautiful jets of water. Less water is used to form this intricate swirls, in fact it reduces the flow of water by 15%.This means that less water is utilized at any point in time, thus saving you water. Three nozzles are available all creating different water swirl patterns. The  Design concept award in 2014 was awarded to Qiu for this concept. In order to retain the sleek and elegant design, the operation of this faucet is carried out with a simple touch button at the top.
