In our framework, we use 7 innovation types:
- Business Model
- Organizational Structures
- Management System
A deep dive in 16 aspects and 66 skills answers the question of how unused types can be built up and realized.
For example, there are strong service organizations, but they hide the product and business model areas too much. Products are often seen as given, and business models do not have good scalability.
Whether 7, 10, or more types: They are always strongly influenced by the teams involved, as explained in this article .
Conversely, if an type is to be used, new teams or teams with mixed skills are often needed.
To find out what types are applied and which innovation persona do play a role in your organisation, a quick innovation assessment (InnoSurvey™) may be applied.
