Their Definition of Innovation Process

DON’T PANIC ! INNOVATION IS OURS !

(Part 2)

Their Definition of Innovation Process

Hello my friends, this is the second part of the article series.

In the previous part, I briefly served you with innovation definitions which I explored and took from hundreds of different reasources. As you see there, the definitions differs from one to another, authorities all define it according to their needs. One can ask, is the definition really matter at this point ? Yes it does.

Now in second part, I’ll be serving you with the definitions of innovation processes from different authorities on this diciplines.

Spoiler allert!! Definitions for innovation and the process of it ? Why do we explore these two topics first ? Because, we will use them to prove that everybody defines and guides the term, innovation, in accordance with their needs and this fact is a block stone in front of the Global Innovationisation at all levels !

Haven’t read the first part yet ? Its ok, click this link to read it: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/dont-panic-innovation-ours-part-1-m-salih-kanber?trk=portfolio_article-card_title

I ll be pleased if you tell me which definition you like there the most !

Now, lets go on!

The Innovation Process Is Defined

  • According to Rivier University:

There are 5 stages in any innovation process;

  • Idea generation and mobilisation:

New ideas are created during idea generation. Mobilization occurs when the idea is moved to a different physical or logical location, such as an outside firm or another department.

  • Advocacy and screening:

Not all ideas are worth implementing. Advocacy and screening help evaluate an idea and measure its potential benefits and problems. From there, a decision can be made about an idea’s future.

  • Experimentation:

The experimentation stage tests an idea, such as with a prototype or pilot test. Researchers in Innovation: Management, Policy & Practice carefully note that “Experimentation does not test an idea’s objective merits, but the suitability for a particular organization at a particular time.” Some ideas “might be ahead of their time or beyond the present capacity of the company … [they] may be set aside into an idea bank or idea library for development at a later time.”

  • Commercialisation:

Commercialization aims to create market value for an idea by focusing on its potential impact. This step makes the idea appealing to the audience, such as by packaging an idea with other ideas, clarifying how and when the idea can be used, and using data or prototypes from experiments to demonstrate benefits.

  • Diffusion and Implementation:

“Diffusion and implementation are two sides of the same coin,” researchers wrote in Innovation: Management, Policy & Practice. Diffusion is the companywide acceptance of an innovative idea, and implementation sets up everything needed to develop and utilize or produce the innovation.

  • According to Dave Power, from Harward University Extention School:

There are 4 stages to an effective innovation process;

  • Observe Your Customers to Uncover New Problems—and Opportunities:

By building an understanding your customers’ problems or pain points, you can think of ways your organization can provide solutions.

  • Create New Solutions:

You can use your customer insights to explore new ways to make a profit.

  • Prototype and learn in the market:

To arrive at an optimal final product, adhere to the principles of lean development: introduce your product to the market as a basic offer first. This enables you to learn continuously from customer behavior and change the offer quickly if it is not working.

  • Implement the best ideas:

Embracing this process as an iterative cycle of learning gives you the flexibility to try out new business possibilities and refine the ideas. This is the best practice for growth companies.

  • According to Elrha (collaborative humanitarian research and innovation)

The process of innovation is often compared to the process of evolution as it is fundamentally a dynamic process of improvement and adaptation which strengthens organisations’ ability to survive and thrive.

  • Recognition:

A specific problem, challenge, or opportunity is recognised  to be seized, in relation to the provision of humanitarian aid.

  • Invention:

A creative solution, or novel idea invented which helps address a problem or seize an opportunity.

  • Development:

An innovation is developed by creating practical, actionable plans and guidelines.

  • Implementation:

An innovation is implemented to produce real examples of changed practice, testing the innovation to see how it compares to existing solutions.

  • Diffusion:

Successful innovations are diffused – taking them to scale and leading to wider adoption outside the original setting.

  • According to Holly Green from Forbes

There are three phases.

  • Discovery:

Phase I has two basic objectives: developing core innovation competencies and generating new and creative ideas, which often includes gathering customer insights and translating them into workable ideas.

  • Evaluation:

This phase separates the wheat from the chaff, as potential ideas and opportunities undergo a rigorous screening process. New ideas are discussed, tested, evaluated, and compared for their potential to add value to customers, generate new revenue streams, or accomplish a specific innovation goal.

  • Execution:

This phase involves making sure that the high-value opportunities identified during the evaluation phase align with your organizational capabilities. Then senior management has to commit the time, money, and resources to make the innovation happen.

  • According to Lead Innovation Management

The phases of innovation can be divided into four main steps.

  • Idea:

collection of innovation potentials, derivation of ideas, evaluation and release of ideas.

  • Concept:

Extensive analysis and derivation of concepts for the solution, implementation and marketing.

  • Solution:

Development and testing of the solutions to the finished product.

  • Market:

Arouse and fulfill a customer’s needs by implementing in procurement, production and logistics as well as marketing and sales.

Tell Us Which One ?

Which one fits your style ? Can you define innovation process better ? If you know somebody else does, please share his/her definition with us.

We Explored Both The Definitions and The Process Explanations For Innovation

We explored the information and put 5 of them here. There are many in the literature but 5 well is enough to show that every definition is made in accordance with the authorities needs. That means, it is defined for the authorities not for the people !

This fact is a road block for innovational thinking. Fancy definitions and processes seem tempting but yet they are entirely ineffective. Individuals and small organizasions, companies even the big ones, can not get on board.

So, in order to fill the blank page, a global level innovatisation must be started!

How ?

We will see..

Let’s Meet Again For the Third Part

In third and the final part, we will redefine innovation and there we will show that innovation is for everybody. It does not belong to corporate companies or hi-tech authorities, its literally ours!

Shall we meet on Part 3 of this article series on 25.01.2019 Friday ?

DONT PANIC ! INNOVATION IS OURS ! (Part 1)

DON’T PANIC ! INNOVATION IS OURS !

(Part 1)

Hello my friends, let me first introduce myself..

I am Kanber and currently occupied as the R&D manager in one of the electrical energy distribution companies in Turkey.

I am writing this article as my first one in 2019, right after my 35th new years eve, when I changed my decision about my career, my life and actually everything. It belongs to an article series about innovation where I will try to learn, experience and share more about the dicipline. Hope that it attracts the right people and we could redefine innovation and spread the dicipline to everything in life.

Well.. After years in industry, practicing some skills and observing the things going around, I can definitely see that somethings going wrong. Innovation is a very important dicipline but somehow people got it wrong. Everybody talks about it, there is a missconception that it belongs to industry and it must be related to hi-tech. Well.. Is it ?

 Does Innovation Belong to Industry and Hi-Tech ?

No, so wrong.. I will explain why later on in detail..

Now.. Let’s not panic but start.. Shall we first look at the state of the art on the definition and concept of innovation in literature ?

In other words, for the part one, lets first explore the definitions of innovation from different authorities.

Here Are Some Definitions of Innovation

  • According to Oxford Dictionary:

Innovation is the action or process of innovating or/else a new method, idea, product, etc.

  • According to Wikipedia:

Innovation can be simply defined as a “new idea, creative thoughts, new imaginations in form of device or method”. However, innovation is often also viewed as the application of better solutions that meet new requirements, unarticulated needs, or existing market needs.

  • According to NASA:

Innovation is an Opportunity to Push the ‘Envelope’.

  • According to an Engineer who works at NASA:

Innovation is how we can help make the government more efficient, how we continue to use technology to make progress in our lives and make the future better for everyone

  • According to Bill Gates:

Innovation starts with government support for the research labs and universities working on new insights that entrepreneurs can turn into companies that change the world.

  • According to Steve Jobs:

Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.

  • According to Scott Berkun (Author, spokesman):

Innovation is significant positive change. It’s a result. It’s an outcome. It’s something you work towards achieving on a project.

  • According to Richard Lyons (Chief learning officer @ Goldman Sachs):

Fresh thinking that creates value.

  • According to OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, 36 Member Countries):

New products, business processes and organic changes that create wealth or social welfare

  • According to Paul Sloane (Author, Public Speaker):

Creativity is thinking of something new. Innovation is the implementation of something new.

  • According to Scott D. Anthony:

Something different that has impact.

  • According to Peter Drucker:

Innovation is change that creates a new dimension of performance.

  • According to Innovation Measurement Magazine:

The design, invention, development and/or implementation of new or altered products, services, processes, systems, organizational structures, or business models for the purpose of creating new value for customers and financial returns for the firm.’’

  • According to United Kingdom Department of Trade and Industry:

Innovation is the successful exploitation of new ideas.

Which Definition Is The Most ?

I do like Peter Drucker ‘s definition of innovation in the first place. Which one do you like the most ? Can you define innovation better ? If you know somebody else, please share his/her definition with us.

In second part, we will explore the literature about how they define the innovation process. Then we will comment on the picture a bit.

Shall we meet on Part 2 of this article on 22.01.2019 Tuesday ?

The Best Definition of Innovation

Innovation Manifesto

I was about to post about some “super automated retail drones” but I’ve changed my mind..

Now, I’d like to declare my manifesto; I will work my jass off to improve everything in life and to tell people (and encourage them) that innovation is for everyone.

Let’s track the state of the art in the industry, explore the resources and evaluate ideas. Let’s define the benefits and costs together. I will be posting more regularly, feel free to give your feedbacks and comments, please

Payload platform for Phantom 4 Pro

We use Phantom 4 pro for field investigations on Electricity distribution lines and we decided to put some cameras, thermals and PD detectors on the drone (Iam a certified drone pilot with over 236 flight hours).

Normally, out of the box phantom 4 pro does not support any payload connection. It does not have any connection points and such.

So I designed a payload platform and tested the flight, the results were successfull.
