Methodology

“The best way to predict the future is to invent it.” (following A. Kay)

Only a proper mindset enables the successful use of skills and the application of knowledge. Therefore, we focus on logical thinking and combine our methodology with the rules of thinking, according to Descartes:

Skepticism:
Accept only information you know to be true by detailed investigation. Avoid all prejudices, and be free from experience and knowledge.
Analysis:
Break down truths and problems into smaller units. Describe problems precisely. Analyze systems, functions and contradictions. Look for analogies.
Design:
Solve the simple problems first. Move methodically from the general system to details, from ideality to the present. Use the rules of technological evolution.
Recurrence:
Watch out for completeness and detail. Make complete lists of all problems. Document your proceedings.

Total Technology Development

Based on this, we use a holistic process that applies the principles of Total Quality Management and Lean Management on technology and product development. We integrate innovation methods, such as systems engineering, quality function deployment, patent analysis, value analysis and in particular the theory of inventive problem solving (TRIZ) with their effective thinking tools:

Total Technology Development is based on thinking methods used for generating ideas and problem solving in a phase-oriented process model. Using evidence-based analysis of requirements and functions we improve already in the early stages of the process significantly decision-making and planning security. Hence technology and pre-development are aligned effectively. The resulting comprehensive methodological idea generation gives strategic and tactical opportunities for an innovation-oriented corporate strategy.

We anticipate the future development of products and companies by applying the principle of ideality and functional and patent analysis. Other results include the logical development of technology calendars with product concepts, production optimization and technical solutions, and as well IP strategies to open up new opportunities for existing or new business areas.

The implementation of Total Technology Development leads to innovation and competitive advantages up to zero competition, sustainable growth and significant cost savings. Total Technology Development solves the dilemma of front end inputs in phase-oriented innovation processes according to the stage-gate principle. Use Total Technology Development for the development of your unrivaled product.

PATENTS ON DEMAND

With our program Patents on Demand , we support the setup of unrivaled markets and help to maintain a pragmatic valuable IP with focus on initial applications in the USA.

In enforcing a property right, a U.S. patent has the advantage that only one court has jurisdiction to potentially 314 million users. Furthermore, U.S. patents typically have a much larger potential scope due to wider claims compared to European patents.

We use a methodical process in which we work closely and effectively with your experts. Our proceedings include the analysis and evaluation of the protection situation and quality, the search for relevant patent and technology information, our systematic idea generation approach, evaluation and design of patentable concepts and the US patent application.

INNOLOGICS® Systematic Open Innovation

INNOLOGICS® is a multi-functional forum for Systematic Open Innovation. With our Innovation Forum you have access to our proprietary INNOLOGICS® process guided by international experts in innovation management and problem solving. You can either participate in our Open Innovation forum threads and contribute with your ideas, inspired by the thinking methods we present, or you can place your own innovation initiatives and projects into a forum for a closed and secure community. We recommend using the INNOLOGICS® Innovation Forum in connection with innovation projects for sustainable development and application of learned innovation methods.

Mobilizing Innovation

In cooperation with gambatte mobilization, we have developed proceedings to integrate many employees into innovation initiatives. We combine cultural impulses with effective practices and sustainable learning of thinking methods of systematic innovation. By mobilizing innovation we bring the entire company to a higher level of innovation.

Mobilizing innovation is a three step process that takes into account all relevant elements of successful real innovation transferred into simple, clear steps, and thus leads to consistent implementation:

The employees are integrated in the early proceedings of innovation processes and stimulated to share their know-how and commitment actively. We provide impetus to a creative culture of innovation. Thus, any employee can be involved and contribute to innovation. Please find more information on mobilize-innovation.com.
