Purpose and goal
The purpose of the project was to develop a flow-oriented innovation support to increase companies´ ability to support more innovative ideas all the way to implementation. The results show that managing projects with high level of novelty require balancing uniqueness and alignment, a no-trivial task. A tool has been developed for how teams and organizations can work and support innovations with high levels of novelty.
Expected results and effects
The project has resulted in the presentation of 4 conference articles at international scientific conferences and received 2 paper awards. 2 articles are under reviewed in international scientific journals. A tool has been developed that organizations can use to support innovations with high level of novelty. Results from this project have also generated that a new project application has been submitted and granted for further work in the area: Prototyping of pricing and revenue models for new digital offers.
Planned approach and implementation
The project has been carried out by KTH, Sandvik Coromant, VinnGroup and Pollen. The work has followed the planned work packages. An in-depth investigation of innovation projects with high level of novelty was performed using critical incident analysis and project mapping journey techniques. Challenges and success factors were identified and based on that three key managerial control mechanisms have been developed. These have, in cooperation with project partners, resulted in tools to support innovations with high level of novelty.
