Measuring the Innovation Journey - From “Absolute” to “Relative” Diffusion Time and Leaps of Faith

Dear all – based on the first set of case studies being gathered and evaluated for our conference article (see ) please see below for a very first draft of the discussion section. Currently much too long to the conference article, however a good foundation to condense from and at the same time important material for the following journal article. Please remember that the intent of the articles is to set a stake in ground regarding our applied research approach via appropriate peer reviewed publications and permanent references. The below draft is obviously only preliminary and there are a few more case studies pending to be integrated, however the general pattern of insights is becoming clearer. Very simply put – why do we continue to research and invent without thinking of our later adopters and preparing for the funding and resources needed to diffuse to them at pace (see http

A First Comparative View of Actual versus Planned Innovation Diffusion - Launching without Money or Resources

Dear all – with an initial case study almost completed a quick insight into the developing narrative which will potentially form the key case study presentation of our upcoming conference article (see ) . Structurally the maturity level structure used for research purposes is aligned to industry standards (see Schwabe, O, Erkoyuncu, J.A., Shehab, E. (2019) “On The Change of Cost Risk and Uncertainty throughout the Life Cycle of Manufacturing Products.” Published February 18, 2020. Elsevier, Procedia CIRP Volume 86, 2019, Pages 239-244. Available at: ) and consist of 5 levels: Level 5: Project Launch and Delivery Level 4: Request for Quotation Level 3: Request for Proposal Level 2: Request for Information Level 1: Explore Strategy and Scenarios Level 0: Do not use If the Litmus Test (

Revisiting the Diffusion Roles from Inventors to Non-Adopters

The diffusion of innovation concept (see also ) describes the journey of an innovation from ideation to market saturation and indeed obsolescence (see also ). The diffusion of innovation consists of several key adoption / user roles termed innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority and laggards (see foundational work by Rogers, E.M., 1962). Current diffusion of innovation thinking is primarily focused on product technical readiness levels (TRL - see also ) and the transition of inventions to innovators in the potential market. The initial role of inventor is typically not considered although it plays a key bridging role between the users encountering a challenge and the innovators who are able to create a product from a research-based proof of concept or pilo

2020 Business Case Competition – Evaluation Criteria – Applicable to Intracompany Innovation Proposals?

Dear all  - our 2020 Business Case Competition ( ) will be asking student teams to assess a case study and suggest “next practice” approaches in order to tackle them. The submitted suggestions will be assessed by a panel consisting not only of thought-leaders in the innovation space, but also be innovation leaders in high value manufacturing practice plus someone who was actually in the midst of the case study. While the panel is still scheduled to convene on the exact evaluation criteria for student team submission, one thing should be clear to us all, the proposal which arrives at its result the FASTEST will probably come out on top! Speed of solution diffusion is of course what we are all about and we will use the Litmus Test Version 2 ( ) to conduct the first assessment of su

** MOVED TO Q1 2021 ** Invitation to University Sponsored Student Teams to Participate in the 2020 Business Case Competition “Accelerating the Diffusion of Innovation in High Value Manufacturing”

** MOVED TO Q1 2021 ** The Open European Network for Enterprise Innovation in High Value Manufacturing (ENTOV-HVM) hereby invites student teams of any size and from any faculty and sponsored by their professors at universities located within the EU28 member nations to participate in the 2020 Business Case Competition. The panel will be chaired by Professor Piero Formica (Professor, Senior Research Fellow, Innovation Value Institute, Maynooth University, Ireland) and further panel participants currently are Professor Leif Edvinsson (New Club of Paris, Sweden), Dr. Sami Kazi (Senior Principal Scientist, Research Strategy and Foresight at VTT, Finland) and Lynne Schneider (CEO Entovation International Ltd., USA). ENTOV-HVM aims at strengthening Europe's innovation capacity and at fostering innovation in higher education, business and the broader socio-economic environment of the European Union by identifying, developing, and sustainably implementing measures to disruptive
