Generating ideas

Where can I find creative potential?

In your company – and our team will help yours to dig it up. Together we will reveal a treasure chest that is filled with good ideas. Sometimes even brilliant ones. In addition, we use our open innovation tools to explore ideas outside of your company. This is how your future products will come into existence.

You have a goal. We have the tools to reach it:

Open Innovation

Creativity is found everywhere: also in customers, users and partners. We use various tools to integrate this creative potential into your innovation process.
One of our key elements in achieving this goal is the Lead-User-Method which entails innovation workshops with carefully selected external lead users. Such an approach opens up new perspectives to requirements, problems and possible solutions within your product portfolio. This is how we were able to find solutions with significant performance and cost advantages for our customers.    

Innovation Workshops

Your greatest potential for innovation is already sitting in your offices. Across all areas of activity and business units, we arrange innovation workshops with your innovative and creative employees. Together we hunt down those subjects that are capable of making your products and processes even more innovative and successful. Then we convert the results into a structured process of assessing and selecting ideas. In consequence, you get concrete recommendations on which ideas should find their way in which priority in into your (pre-) development process.
