Innovative Change Management (ICM) represents the accumulated wisdom and knowledge of one of the world’s foremost performance improvement specialists. It includes a clear and thorough explanation of the necessary critical tools for creating a system that results in a much higher percentage of your initiatives progressing to successful projects. Studies conducted by organizations such as Gartner, Ernst & Young, and Harrington Management Systems indicate that on average less than 25% of the innovative projects achieve sustained success. The American Productivity Quality Center's 2018 survey report pointed out that 88% of the organizations felt that process management discipline must be changed and 53.8% felt they must create a continuous improvement culture. Through the effective use of the ICM methodology, you can turn thousands of lost employee hours into millions of dollars in increased profit. This book unveils to the reader for the first time how ICM combines project change management, culture change management, and project management concepts to create an effective and innovative organization. These concepts combined result in homogeneous improvements in performance improvement and cultural change. The book outlines a step-by-step procedure designed to apply ICM to complex programs such as process redesign and supply chain management as well as to simpler ones such as relocation of offices. In addition, it provides field-tested change methodologies to help you systematically include change into your strategic management plan. This book shows you how to: Set the stage for ICM. Develop a new management style that encourages innovation. Develop and implement a project change management methodology to support the project management methodology. Develop a cultural change management program. How to reward and recognize the innovation activities generated by your employees. Make ICM an important part of the strategic plan. Help employees understand the career-enhancing aspects of change How to maximize your organization’s ROC (return on change). Most of the activity related to change management focuses on successfully implementing individual projects. Statistics indicate that this is not enough to keep up with today’s rapid changing innovative competition. As most profitable organizations are working diligently on increasing their innovation capabilities, this focus is requiring a completely new restructured management style and behavioral patterns that are foreign to most of today’s successful managers.

In today’s fast-moving, high-technology environment, the focus on quality has given way to a focus on innovation. From presidents of the United States to presidents of Fortune 500 companies, it is clear that everyone thinks innovation is extremely important. The challenge is that few people stop to define why innovation is important—to understand what’s driving the need for more innovation. We all agree that more frequent innovation is important, even necessary. What remains unanswered is why we allow innovation consultants, elected officials, and business leaders to tell us innovation is important, but not demonstrate the underlying reasons why. The three volumes of The Innovation Tools Handbook cover 76 top-rated tools and methods, from the hundreds available, that every innovator must master to be successful. Volume I covers 24 creative tools/methodologies most frequently used to change an organization’s structure and operations. It provides a clear understanding of how all 24 tools are used and the type or results they can generate, so you can learn to select the right combination of tools that best meet your organization’s needs. This book is the result of a research study that defined the most efficient, effective, and frequently used tools in the innovative process. For each tool described, it provides a definition, identifies the user of the tool or methodology, explains what phases of the innovation process the tool is used, describes how the tool is used, supplies examples of the outputs from the tool, identifies software that can help you maximize the effectiveness of the tool, and includes references and suggestions for further reading. Tools and methodologies covered include: Agile innovation, benchmarking, business case development, business plans, comparative analysis, competitive analysis, contingency planning, costs analysis, financial reporting, focus groups, identifying and engaging stakeholders, innovation master plan, knowledge management systems, market research and surveys, organizational change management, potential investor presentation, project management, S-curve model, safeguarding intellectual properties, systems thinking, value propositioning, and visioning.

In today’s fast-moving, high-technology environment, the focus on quality has given way to a focus on innovation. From presidents of the United States to presidents of Fortune 500 companies, it is clear that everyone thinks innovation is extremely important. The challenge is that few people stop to define why innovation is important—to understand what’s driving the need for more innovation. We all agree that more frequent innovation is important, even necessary. There is actually a growing body of evidence that indicates that looking outside of your company (rather than purely looking internally) and to customers’ needs, using the tools in this Handbook, will lead to more innovative ideas. Responding to customers’ needs is the key to a successful business. You can use these tools to talk to customers—satisfied ones, unsatisfied ones, potential customers, people who would never buy your product or service, and also people you have never considered as a potential customer. In addition, these tools will help you ask your competitors’ customers about what makes them happy with the current businesses and offerings in the industry, why they buy or do not buy from you, your competitors, and other industries. These tools will help you understand the steps in the customer journey they need to take, what delights and frustrates them, and what their pain points are. The three volumes of The Innovation Tools Handbook cover 76 top-rated tools and methods, from the hundreds available, that every innovator must master to be successful. Covering evolutionary and/or improvement innovative tools and methodologies, Volume 2 presents 23 tools/methodologies related to innovative evolutionary products, processes, and services, or the improvement of existing ones. For each tool, the book provides a definition, identifies the user of the tool, explains what phases of the innovation process the tool is used, describes how the tool is used, supplies examples of the outputs from the tool, identifies software that can maximize its effectiveness, and includes references and suggestions for further reading. Ideation is about developing ideas on how to seize identified opportunities. What are the possible answers to your breakthrough questions? Having a deep understanding about the customer, their needs and pain points, as well as the existing solutions (i.e. business models in the industry) will naturally lead to new ideas. How seriously you do your discovery homework using the tools in these Handbooks will determine not only how fast you create ideas, but about how likely these ideas are to succeed. Tools and methodologies covered include: 5 why questions, Affinity diagrams, attribute listing, brainwriting 6–3–5, cause-and-effect diagrams, creative problem solving model, design for tools, flowcharting, force field analysis, Kano analysis, nominal group technique, plan–do–check–act, reengineering/redesign, reverse engineering, robust design, SCAMPER, simulations, six thinking hats, social networks, solution analysis diagrams, statistical analysis, tree diagram, and value analysis. The authors believe that by making effective use of the tools and methodologies presented in this book, your organization can increase the percentage of creative/innovative ideas by five to eight times its present performance level.

Der Weg zum eigenen Unternehmen ist nie ohne Risiko. Und bis die Firma sich auf dem Markt etabliert hat, dauert es. Wer doch scheitert, verliert in der Regel viel Geld. Genau hier setzt das Konzept von Eric Ries an. Lean Startup heißt seine Methode. Sie ist schnell, ressourcenfreundlich und radikal erfolgsorientiert. Anhand von durchgespielten Szenarien kann man von vornherein die Erfolgsaussichten von Ideen, Produkten und Märkten bestimmen. Und auch während der Gründungphase wird der Stand der Dinge ständig überprüft. Machen, messen, lernen – so funktioniert der permanente Evaluationsprozess. Das spart enorm Zeit, Geld und Ressourcen und bietet die Möglichkeit, spontan den Kurs zu korrigieren. Das Lean-Startup-Tool hat sich schon zigtausenfach in der Praxis bewährt und setzt sich auch in Deutschland immer stärker durch.

Warum scheitern so viele Startups und neue Produkte? Und wie kann man die Chancen deutlich erhohen, mit einer Innovation erfolgreich zu sein? Als Antwort auf diese Fragen hat Ash Maurya die in diesem Buch vorgestellte Methode entwickelt, die auf Strategien des Lean Management und der agilen Entwicklung aufbaut und speziell auf Innovationsprozesse zugeschnitten ist. Der Trick besteht darin, fruhzeitig, konsequent und in allen Projektphasen potenzielle Kunden in den Entwicklungsprozess einzubeziehen und das eigene Geschaftsmodell immer wieder zu hinterfragen. Ein entscheidendes Tool ist dabei die "Lean Canvas," ein Template, das eine einfache Visualisierung des Businessplans ermoglicht und erheblich einfacher zu erfassen und zu uberarbeiten ist als die ublichen, viele Seiten starken Konzeptpapiere. Ash Maurya hat die Methode anhand eigener Projekte entwickelt und erfolgreich getestet. In Running Lean erlautert er sie ganz praktisch mit Schritt-fur-Schritt-Anleitungen anhand eines konkreten Beispiels. Alle Schritte konnen einfach nachvollzogen und auf die eigenen Innovationsprojekte angewandt werden. Die Lean Canvas sowie die Fragebogen fur Kundeninterviews lassen sich direkt aus dem Buch ubernehmen. Ein Problem identifizieren, das viele Menschen umtreibt, und eine Losung dafur definieren. Die Kunden in den gesamten Entwicklungsprozess einbinden. Das Produkt / die Idee kontinuierlich testen, in immer kurzeren Iterationszyklen. Erkennen, wann die Marschrichtung geandert werden sollte. Entwicklungsgeschwindigkeit, Erkenntnisprozesse und Ausrichtung optimieren. Den idealen Zeitpunkt fur Finanzierungsrunden finden.
