Agile Invention: Successful inventions and designing new business models
Shorter product life cycles and the rapid spread of new technologies are major challenges for companies. In order to remain competitive in the long term, manufacturing companies must develop new business models and products. Radical and disruptive innovations in particular can help to address new customer segments and contribute to the long-term success of the company. The changed framework conditions resulting from this make it necessary to rethink the innovation process.
Against this background, the Fraunhofer IPT and an industry consortium are carrying out a benchmarking on the topic of »Agile Invention«. The aim of this international study is to identify successful and proven solutions in the field of innovation and technology management and to benefit from them. We want to identify concepts, methods and procedures of successful practice companies in order to learn how a successful management of disruptive innovations can be characterized and which approaches have proven themselves in development.
