PRODUCT AND SERVICE INNOVATION

Remain successful with groundbreaking ideas.

Product and service innovations are often based on step-by-step improvements, for example by integrating additional functions or changing a format or colour. With the ADT method, however, we go further than just one step: by breaking down common barriers to thinking, we can develop revolutionary innovations that at first glance seem almost outrageous. Together with you we can, for example, develop the following:

Examples of product and service innovation projects in various formats include:

  • New product
  • Product variant
  • New or more innovative service
  • Innovative packaging
  • Product pipeline

You can arrange to have us support your innovation process as a service package or you can participate in a methodology training course yourself.

PROCESS INNOVATION

Optimize efficiency and effectiveness.

Existing processes are complex systems, with each step directly dependent on the subsequent or preceding process step. Improvement proposals usually only lead to a discussion on areas of responsibility and only result in incremental improvements at best. Using ADT, we first look to generate added value for all stakeholders involved. In a second step, we compile these learnings into a concrete concept for process improvement.

Examples of process innovation projects include:

  • Process innovation workshops
  • CAPEX and OPEX cost optimization workshops
  • Optimization of industrial plant service
  • Optimization of maintenance processes
  • Human resource process optimization projects
  • Product pre-development process rectification
  • Production process complexity reduction
  • POS process and service process development

INNOVATIVE COMMUNICATION

Inspiring and compelling presentation of your project.

When you present your future innovation, the presentation should be equally forward-looking. Appearance and impact are decisive for your success! That is why we support you in the development and introduction of all-important communication activities:

Examples of communication projects include:

    • Innovation 2D, 3D or interactive visualizations
    • Management presentations, summaries, animations, movies
    • Branding, positioning, claims and value-communication
    • Graphic design, logos and corporate identities
    • Click dummies , web pages and apps
    • Decoration, display and trade fair stands
    • Copy, storytelling, strong messages

We will help you to think the unthinkable.

BUSINESS MODEL INNOVATION

Development of new business models using existing resources.

Innovative business models often turn accepted and market-determining beliefs upside down. Our innovation method, Accelerated Design Thinking, is perfect for making this paradigm shift sustainable at all levels. This is because true innovations are generally to be conceived of as ecosystems consisting of product, service, application, communication and business model components. Examples of projects for the innovation of holistic business models:

Examples of business model innovation projects include:

  • Systematic development of new business models based on existing resources
  • Development of holistic business model ecosystems including product, features, communication, sales and service
  • Systematic development of physical and digital MVP (minimum viable product) concepts
  • Methodological support for incubators

CORPORATE DEVELOPMENT

Manage innovation as a sustainable process & establish the right culture.

Unleash the innovative abilities of your employees and manage innovation as a sustainable and scalable process. We are dedicated to building your team’s long-term innovation skills and providing results-oriented project support.

We offer holistic innovation management and create an innovation culture using the following methods:

  • Creating a deeper understanding of the meaning and need for change and innovation
  • Implementation of structures and processes, which guarantee sustainable innovation management
  • Introduction of role models and leadership behaviour
  • Development and implementation of concrete innovation projects as drivers for a sustainable innovation culture
  • Methodological support for incubators and other existing innovation initiatives

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

Develop new digital business models, implement and test MVPs.

Most companies see the great potential of digitalization, but very few really know how to make use of it in their own environment. ADT provides a radically new perspective, thus enabling the development of holistic concepts for digital transformation.

Examples of digital innovation projects include:

  • Targeted innovation management for digital transformation
  • Systematic MVP concept development
  • Methodological support for company incubators and other accelerator formats
  • Product-market-fit workshops
  • POS digitization projects
  • IOT and Smart Home concept development projects
  • Targeted technology use and integration

Don't hesitate to go to the next level

PROBLEM SOLVING

Fast & targeted development of smart inventive solutions.

Problem statements can rarely be reduced to a single sentence. ADT initially establishes a common perspective on the complex and different levels of the issue at hand, examining how they are related to one another. The second step is to develop solutions for the different problem areas.

Examples of problem solving projects include:

  • Problem solving with regard to issues in production
  • Decoupling of quality processes from the production process
  • Conflict resolution
  • Identity creation
  • Technical problems

STARTUP CULTURE & DIGITAL BUSINESS MODELS

Integrate a startup culture & systematically develop new digital business opportunities.

Many companies are currently trying to replicate the agile and results-oriented culture of start-ups and the scalability of digital business models within their corporate structures. However, the conventional focus is mostly on the development of structures, processes and revenue forecasts. We help you to develop digital business models systematically, allowing you to integrate a startup culture and agile thinking in your company.

Examples of startup culture and digital business model development projects include:

  • Development of new digital products, services and business models
  • Scenario planning for emerging technologies
  • Potential analysis for digital transformation
  • Digital disruption workshops
  • Systematic MVP development
  • Methodological support for company incubators and accelerator initiatives

STRATEGY INNOVATION

Systematic strategy & scenario development.

Traditional strategy development often involves simply going over old ground and only arriving at a compromise. We help you to create a fresh, common perspective on the challenges ahead, systematically developing solutions that are aligned with your strategic objectives.

Examples of such strategy innovation projects include:

  • Scenario planning workshops to systematically develop different strategies for various future scenarios
  • Development of go-to-market strategies
  • Development of company and product positioning strategies
  • Product-market-fit workshops

COST OPTIMIZATION

Save costs and reduce complexity.

Classic creativity techniques or innovation methods often prove inadequate, especially when it comes to specific tasks such as the reduction of variable or investment costs. Using ADT, we can tailor the development of ideas specifically to the task and / or an area of opportunity. Examples of cost optimization projects include:

  • Targeted development of ideas for complexity reduction and simultaneous added value
  • Development of concepts for the reinvestment of cost reduction for production plants
  • Systematic operating cost reduction for ongoing processes
  • Development of an idea and concept pipeline for the short- and long-term optimization of resource use
  • Process optimization of service and maintenance processes for industrial plants
