Breakthrough Innovation

The Revolution Solution

Fact: highly innovative Fortune 500 companies return 4x value to their shareholders. So how do you get highly innovative?

To achieve real innovation requires that you literally rewrite the DNA of your corporate culture. Innovation is the key to unlocking the imagination of your people, to solve the myriad of problems that face us in these challenging times, whether it’s by inventing breakthrough products, finding novel ways to increase sales, or creating new strategies for surviving a recession. Our system for innovation resource management, REVOLUTION™ for Innovation, is designed to help make all of these breakthroughs achievable.

Revolution is a dynamic collaboration application that enables you and your team to capture, refine, evaluate and manage ideas – your most valuable corporate asset – in a powerful new way. Not just ideas for new products and services, but ideas for cost reductions, new market spaces and process improvements. Using a structured innovation pipeline, you can now incubate a portfolio of such ideas, and the end result is organic knowledge management. Now you can instantly capture knowledge, automate the pipeline and present to management using real-time dashboards.

We designed our first innovation resource management application years ago and successfully deployed our first generation ideation management system for a major financial service company three years ago. Now, after extensive development, we’ve released the world’s first second generation innovation web application – Revolution™ for Innovation.

The Revolution™ platform for innovation is a dynamic collaboration environment that enables you and your team to capture, refine, evaluate and manage ideas – your most valuable corporate asset – in a powerful new way. Not just ideas for new products and services, but ideas for cost reductions, new market spaces and process improvements. Using a structured innovation pipeline, you can now incubate a portfolio of such ideas, and the end result is organic knowledge management. Now you can instantly capture knowledge, automate the pipeline and present to management using real-time dashboards. It’s a knowledge repository for your most valuable corporate asset – breakthrough ideas – that’s customized to fit your natural business process.

It’s more than just another idea catcher or automated suggestion box. For example, instead of just offering a forum, we extend that core technology with keyword analytics and linguistic sensors to improve the underlying quality of ideation and innovation at your company. Instead of just providing simple activity tracking, we embed “action tags” into social activity to enable social workflow™ – e.g., we turn low value social activity into high value business process. And by adaptively weighting polling algorithms, we can turn your social network into a kind of neural network, enabling the optimization of your innovation decision-making so you can find disruptive innovations and hit products sooner and more reliably.

This powerful system delivers many next generation capabilities:

  • Integrated ideation velocity sensors™ that help improve ideation via keyword analytics and expert system feedback for increasing depth and out of the box thinking
  • Automated ideation pipeline propagation through a next generation social workflow™ engine, which simplifies the process of idea submission, refinement, review, approval and tracking
  • Innovation optimization turns your social network into a collaborative braintrust by using adaptively weighted polling algorithms
  • Fully interactive executive dashboards that provide real-time innovation audits and analysis as well as enhanced collaborative decision-making
  • Business centric social reputation server rewards online behavior that drive improved innovation teamwork
  • Powerful enterprise social network helps you form optimal cross-function development teams
  • Simplified social network API allows enterprise to easily roll your own social applications in a “social sandbox”

thinkspots2Finally, we don’t stop at software. We deliver a complete end to end solution for innovation, from the initial innovation assessment that lets us customize the system, to effective innovation training that assists in adoption, to deployment of the Revolution system, to the construction of dedicated ThinkSpots™ – brainstorming rooms that stimulate big thinking with immersive telepresence and next generation digital whiteboards – i.e., the ideal architecture for innovation.

What’s more ThinkSpots will fully integrate with the Revolution framework, so the fruits of your labor are recorded in the innovation system automatically, with relevant metadata automatically generated for your corporate search engine to discover or remember.

The goal is to move from ad hoc and sporadic invention to a structured and managed innovation process. The Revolution framework can help your company take command of processes for guiding the flow of knowledge – from creation to commercialization, from inspiration to execution, from business as usual to true innovation. Give us a call and let’s talk about starting a revolution at your company!
