This Coursebook aims to cover the range of topics around the subject of innovation that are of interest to persons responsible for directing and managing innovation at the corporate and business-results levels. This is the material that underlies GGI’s 3-Day R&D-Product Development Innovation Summit which was first offered to the public on January 17-19, 2006 in Norwood, Massachusetts, USA. While in MS Powerpoint format, this is a data-intensive document that is consistent with GGI’s industry reputation in the quantitative aspects of product development and innovation.
The first section of the R&D Innovation Summit Coursebook contains industry benchmark information about: product selection and intellectual property management and decision processes, pipeline yield rates from ideation to commercialization, relative innovativeness of tools and techniques used by today’s product developers, top management short list of practices that fuels R&D productivity, and an inventory of “all” innovation tools in the marketplace today.
The second section contains more in-depth information about four major innovation-enablers: Lead User Analysis, Six Hats, Triz, and Semantic Processing. The second section also contains more in-depth information about: Trade Secrets, Trademarks/Servicemarks, Copyrights, and Patents.
The third section contains information on five subject areas that are part of an overall innovation environment: additional software such as self assessment and DSS and IP management, insourcing and outsourcing innovation, metrics and measures for innovation environments, and reward and recognition processes and mechanisms. The Summary highlights the contributions of five prominent books in the field of innovation that are used by corporations. The brief Conclusion indicates the places in product development processes where the use of innovation tools may have the best impact, along with positioning innovation strategically, and within technical and product management functions.
