Are you looking for help with Technology Innovation or Project Management? There are two possibilities if you are. One is to have someone help you become proficient yourself and the other is the "done for you" approach. Either way, you've come to the right place.
One of the issues in innovation is that many good ideas never see the light of day. The reason is that people who have the ideas often don't know how to manage the projects to develop the idea into a finished product or service. In fact, they often don't even know how to start.
Knowing how to manage an innovation project is often the key to success. But there is another critical factor. There is no need to create something that has no market. Or it has a market but the cost to develop it is so high that the return on investment (ROI) is unacceptable. Handling decisions about whether to continue developing a product or killing the project is done using a technique called Stagegate Management.
In any case, we can help you through training or consulting. We have a combined hundred years of experience with managing innovation projects, in fairly diverse fields that include engineering and biotechnology. And we will refer you to someone else if what you need falls outside our areas of expertise. We don't claim to know everything. We have our own specialties and we'll be straight with you about whether we can do a first-class job for you. (Second-class is unacceptable to us, and should be for you as well.)
Trying to make a decision on something as important as innovation is nearly impossible just by reading the text on a website. And FAQs are nearly impossible to decipher.
I don't know about you, but I HATE not being able to talk with a real, live, warm-bodied human being!
Use our Appointment Scheduler and we'll talk with you about what you need, so we can both decide if we are right for each other. No cost. No strong-arm selling. Just a friendly chat between two people who may or may not be able to work together.
