What is this for?

This is a tool that we introduce on day 2 and 4 of the innovation strategy sprint. It is where your team creates a clear master structure for its innovation strategy.

It starts with defining the intended outcome and ends with a concrete action plan. It is a 4-part process that looks in detail at all aspects of what needs to be covered before implementation begins.

You pin down the desired innovation results and measure the projected impact.

We do this using tools such as the 3 Horizons of Innovation, to categorize business ideas, and the Innovation Matrix tool, to evaluate what type of activity you will undertake, and establish the level of investment.

When you’ve completed this blueprint, you will have a detailed sketch of the scope, people involved, resource allotment, and project phases.
