What Is Your Innovation Profile?
Lowell Innovation can assess and improve the innovation process by conducting an “innovation profile” analysis. This is a financial based analysis of the existing product development projects within the context of current technologies, markets, and innovation resources. This analysis can be used to assess innovation opportunities and identify the hard choices about projects to feed, fix, find, hold, or drop.
It identifies resources needed internally and externally to achieve growth targets and market differentiation. Knowing your innovation profile will focus efforts on the highest potential opportunities and align resources to launch strategies for immediate impact and winning product plans.
