2 VTT 2 ©Göran Roos 2007 Interest in innovation and R&D performance has been rising on the back of a wide range of successful products and services Context

3 VTT 3 ©Göran Roos 2007 Remember Innovation is not only based on natural sciences

4 VTT 4 ©Göran Roos 2007 What do companies think about innovation?

5 VTT 5 ©Göran Roos 2007 What is the real situation? t Booz Allen Hamilton Global Innovation 1,000 Study 2006: – Innovation can lead to higher performance, but the process isnt automatic and it does not necessarily require above average levels of investment. The most successful companies combine an integrated process and a supportive culture to create a sustainable competitive advantage – Money simply cannot buy effective innovation. – Patents generally dont drive profits – Less than 10% of companies are High-Leverage Innovators and distinguish themselves not by the money they spend, but in having a very good innovation management system t Innovation Network Survey, fall 2004 [same result from 2005], new innovation leaders in medium to large companies: – 71% said they had no metrics for their position – 60% of them have innovation as part of their mission/job objectives – 67% are allowed to work on new concepts for their company (new is not defined) – 68% have no well defined innovation process within their company – 54% have no working definition of innovation

6 VTT 6 ©Göran Roos 2007 Research vs Innovation – What is the relationship?

7 VTT 7 ©Göran Roos 2007 EXPANDING THE INNOVATION HORIZON t Innovation can be ignited by business and technology integration. t Technology can enable and drive innovation. But to truly capitalize on technologys potential and unleash an organizations creative energy, technology know-how must be combined with its business and marketing insights.

Nornally these are expressed in IC-Navigator form and using the (Stabell and Fjeldstad 1998) Value Logics t The identified Resources that can be deployed by the firm to create value including those that form the basis for a competitive advantage t A Partnership is a voluntarily initiated cooperative agreement between two or more companies in order to create value for the customer t The Cost Structure is the representation in money of all the means employed in the business model. t The Revenue Model describes the way a company makes money through a variety of revenue flows.

9 VTT 9 ©Göran Roos 2007 Truly understand your customers and your customers customers [consumers] Customers are trading both up and down within categories, demanding differentiated value from businesses Growth Historical Demand Emerging Demand Price Positioning t Seeking good enough quality at rock-bottom prices when they perceive no differentiated value t Willing to pay large premiums for new luxury brands when they deliver differentiated value Source: IBM Institute for Business Value analysis Value Proposition Target Customer

20 VTT 20 ©Göran Roos 2007 Summary t Innovation does make a difference at the bottom line t Few companies do it well t There is a difference between research and innovation and especially in their management t Innovation is more than technology t Innovation Management is Key and is facilitated by applying the IC lens t We know how good innovation management looks t It will become even more important in the future
