Guided Innovation Diagnostic Track
Project reviews, organizational assessments and problem diagnosis with a fresh perspective
Do you understand the risks inherent in your new product project portfolio and how to deal with them? The first step in solving any problem is to identify its root causes. Whatever the situation, your organization will have many opinions about problems and their causes. But they are often just too close to the issue making it easy to confuse symptoms for causes. This results in solutions that are ineffective or even make things worse.
A Guided Innovation Diagnostic gives you independent, expert perspective while still involving your team and drawing on their important knowledge and subject matter expertise. We offer two types of diagnostics:
Portfolio level: A quick, high level scan of all your key new product initiatives to identify projects at significant risk.
Project level: An in-depth evaluation of individual projects to identify key risks, problems and their root causes.
In most cases, within just one week you can expect a confidential assessment of the situation and a recommendation for turning it around. Every assessment comes with our no-hassle performance promise; we guarantee that you will be 100% satisfied with our analysis and recommendation or your fee will be returned.
Guided Planning & Execution Track
Facilitated project mapping and planning to ensure your new projects get started on the right track in the first place
If you don’t know where you’re headed, any route will get you there. Unfortunately, too many product development projects start without a clear target and a plan for achieving it. If you are just launching a new product development or other strategic initiative, this workshop will rapidly take your team through the process of setting objectives and building a project plan. You also have the option of continued coaching sessions to provide the team with independent feedback and ensure the program stays on track. Start your strategic new product projects on the Guided Planning & Execution Track and you can expect your team to hit the ground running with a solid plan designed for results.
Guided Innovation Rescue Track
A program that gets your struggling product development projects back on track fast: in weeks not months
In the unfortunate situation when a project does go off the rails, it can be tough for the project team to see the path forward. It’s only natural; they get too close to the details and become too invested in the project to be objective. The Guided Innovation Rescue Track starts with a project level diagnostic. Then, if warranted, the project team goes through a workshop to lay out clear go or no-go milestones for reevaluating feasibility and moving forward with development. You can expect to see your key new product project back on track with a clear direction for commercial success: often in just a few weeks.
