  • Innovations Management

    As per Morgan Stanley report, an estimated $2.7 trillion that companies invested into technology in the year, more than $500 billion is wasted largely part due to implementation failure. So, the importance and scope of Idea Management (Ideation) or simply Invention Disclosure Management System (IDMS) is obvious.

    Why Innovation Partnership Program?

    Innovation partnership program helps Startups, Incubators, Accelerators, Universities and Enterprises alike achieve end-to-end
    automation of Intellectual Property, Technology commercialization processes and accelerate innovations from lab to market. The innovation partnership program identifies potential markets, alternate use of technologies and maximizes
    licensing opportunities and royalty revenue streams.

    The new Technology Innovations can be inventions, discoveries, significant improvements, new techniques, products, processes or software programs that are innovative or unique. We work with you through the innovation lifecycle to maximize your return on investment.

  • Critical Factors of Innovation Management

    What are the critical factors for ensuring success of Innovations Management?

    The critical aspects are:

      Capturing Ideas, Managing Invention Disclosures
      Evaluating and Approving ideas, inventions for Patent filing
      Seeking Intellectual property protection in global markets

  • Key Drivers of Innovation:

      Increase employer worker Knowledge, Skills & Competencies
      Develop Skills - Technology Intelligence, Innovation, IP Process Management
      Develop Collaboration
      Leverage Technology Intelligence
      Leverage Tools - Competetetive Intelligence
      Innovation Capital
      Leverage ICT, innovation Process Information
      Automation of Innovation, IP Processes
      Assess Innovation Management, IP Management Tools

    IPWayz allows you to manage innovations by capturing all ideas across the enterprise and manage the Invention Disclosure. The Invention Disclosure Management System in IPWayz allows prospective inventors to disclosure / submit their proposed inventions to patent committee for review.

    Management can evaluate all submissions, and based on commercial viability and strategic benefits, decide to invest in creating business “value“. The scope of innovations can be – Product Innovation or Service Innovation or Process Innovation.

    Enterprises can manage all ideas, invention disclosures in centralized idea repository. All inventors can submit their proposed inventions online for evaluation by patent review committee – constituting Business experts, Technical experts, IP Experts, Strategic Business Unit heads and Top Management or Executive sponsor. This ensures organizations solid returns in terms of competitive advantage and ability to monetize innovations and improve business value.

Innovation Performance Management – From Idea to Value

Understanding the value or determining the value in a systematic, timely and cost-effective way is the critical factor that determines success or failure of the products. Typically about 33 percent to 60 percent of the new products fail in the market due to this fundamental reason.

So, define the “value” – perceived versus actual; this is critical for the outcome (success or failure).

Using Innovation Performance Management one can measure the translation of ideas into value. How to go about?

  • Determine how you want to convert your idea into New Product or Product Improvement or Service Innovation or Process Innovation
  • Is this Innovation going to be Incremental innovation (risks are low) or Radical innovation (simultaneously addressing multiple business pain points; – It is risky)
  • Determine the efficiency and effectiveness of your product / service or process innovation
  • Gain business expertise – This is critical for ensuring success
  • Start the transformation exercise of changing idea into value to gain competitive advantage
  • Get customer insights
