Board of Innovation innovation landscape

What is this for?

Want to discuss your ideas in the group to properly evaluate and refine them? The “innovation landscape” helps you:

  • To create an overview by individually structuring your ideas or concepts on this matrix with your organization in mind.
  • To understand how realistic your ideas/concepts are for your company at this moment in time. 

Step-by-step guide.

Step 1

Download this PDF and print it on an A2 sheet of paper. You can also draw the diagram on a sheet of paper if you can’t print.

Step 2

Let’s get started! Pick an idea you previously generated during a brainstorm session.

Step 3

Evaluate if you can execute this idea with our current business structure, or if we need new partners, markets or channels. Map it on the vertical axis accordingly.

 

Step 4

Evaluate if you can execute this idea with our current technical capabilities, or if we need to get new know-how, processes, activities or resources. Map it on the horizontal axis accordingly.

Step 5

Start the group discussion when all ideas/concepts are positioned in the matrix. It is possible that some ideas or concepts fit in more than one box, just put it into one that suits best.
