Our methods

Scientifically based methods, established and standardized models, 25 years of experience in selecting, applying and evaluating the right consulting toolbox for your individual situation.

Analysis of search fields

We identify search fields for innovations based on the company’s current and future business model. Functionally structured radar systems for innovations are set up for each search field: innovation radars.

Future scenarios

As part of strategic innovation planning, we develop future scenarios for possible customer solutions. After analyzing the customer’s current ecosystem and possible trends, possible future scenarios are developed for an area of application. Based on these future scenarios, innovation goals, product and technology roadmaps are derived after a strategic assessment.

Business Modeling

We develop alternative business models based on the current strengths, market opportunities and possible innovation potential for the customer. We use the St. Gallen Business Model Navigator.

Design Thinking

We use design thinking to develop product visions and innovations. We proceed in five phases:
1. Building Empathy: Understanding users’ needs, desires, and experiences through observation and interaction.
2. Define the problem: Identify and formulate the core problem from the user’s perspective.
3. Generate Ideas: Develop a variety of creative solutions through brainstorming and other techniques.
4. Prototype: Quickly develop tangible models or services to illustrate and test ideas.
5. Testing: Reviewing prototypes with users to collect feedback and further refine solutions.

Product visions

We develop a future picture for a future solution taking into account the relevant trends. In this future vision, a complete solution scenario is described and visually presented.

Customer journey

As part of a customer journey, we collect the entirety of all experiences that a customer has with a brand, product or service across various touchpoints. This process extends from initial perception or awareness of a product or service to purchase and beyond, including use and possibly recommendation or repurchase. On this basis, we identify potential for innovation and improvement in the life cycle of the product or service.

Value proposition design

As part of innovation management, we define personas for the target customer segments and describe their activities, their wishes and pain points. This is an important basis for developing products specifically for the customer profile and successfully marketing the products.

Competitive analysis

We use the Porter’s Five Forces method to analyze a market. This method is supplemented by a product-specific competition analysis based on prioritized customer requirements.

Networks for innovation

Based on a company’s current networks, we develop a systematic innovation network with scouts and external partners. This network provides impulses for innovation and provides the basis for cooperative innovations.

Open innovation workshops and campaigns

As a rule, the innovation potential in the core competencies of a company has been identified and already taken into account in innovation planning. Especially for technology leaders, the greatest innovation potential lies in technology areas outside of a company’s core competencies. We systematically investigate in open innovation workshops where new areas of innovation may lie.
