Why a Strategy? Strategy Vision Now Strengths Opportunities
Workshop Process One area at a time Make sure every voice is heard Co-create concepts and words Speak for your own ideas, not against others’ The process manager holds both the baton and the pen We’ll cover some ground but perhaps not all the way There’s more support if we would like
Before We Start My name is… I feel like a (anonymous) –Prisoner – I don’t want to be here and I will have a negative impact if I can! –Vacationer – Nice to be away from everyday work so don’t ask me to contribute! –Shopper – This might be interesting and I’m sure I’ll find something worth taking home! –Explorer – I really enjoy exploring this and I promise to contribute as much as I possible can!
1. CONCEPTS Innovation Strategy
Questions - Concepts What does ”Innovation” and ”Research Utilization” mean to us in our research group? Why should we be involved in innovation as researchers? Please note that this concerns innovation as academic practice, not innovation as a research topic!
Innovation What responsibility for utilization, should we take? What is being utilized? What forms of utilization should we choose? Research outcomes Benefit in society From Research to Utilization ! ! ? ?
An innovation is utilized research based knowledge. Innovation is the process that leads to the utilization of research based knowledge. An invention is a kind of intellectual asset, and thus not an innovation. What is innovation in an academic context?
2. IMPACT Innovation Strategy
Questions – Impact (external) What kinds of impact on or results in other organisations (private, public, NGO) would we like our utilization to lead to? What have we achieved so far? What are we really good at? What kind of results do we not want to see? Examples: ”Our innovation aims at supporting product development and new business opportunities for the large telecommunication companies.” ”Our research results will first and foremost be utilized by small and medium sized companies wanting to improve their productivity.”
3. TARGET GROUPS Innovation Strategy
Questions – Target Groups Who should be the prime receivers of our research results? What have we achieved so far? What are we really good at? What kind of stakeholders do we not want to exploit our research results? Examples: ”Our research has the biggest positive impact potential in society through a close collaboration with larger private and public healthcare institutions.” ”Our research provides an important fundament for decision-makers in the Swedish government.”
4. ASSETS & PROCESSES Innovation Strategy
Question - Processes What and how should we utilize our research? What have we achieved so far? What are we really good at? What kind of processes do we not want to use? Examples: ”We will make sure always to investigate possible IPR options for the results we produce.” ”Our strategic ambition is to make our research results available as Open Source.”
What is being utilized? Sorry, no ideas at the moment, too busy interpreting the data I got from the computer algorithm I wrote that runs the measuring equipment I designed during lunch break… Fotograf: Johan Wingborg Belief Fotograf: Johan Wingborg Invention Model Design Software Method Data Fotograf: Johan Wingborg Reality
Some Ways To Utilize Research
5. EFFECTS Innovation Strategy
Questions – Effects (internal) What kinds of positive effects from utilization would we like to see on our own research? What have we achieved so far? What are we really good at? What kind of effects do we not want to have? Examples: ”We would like our research utilization to lead to closer collaboration with more stakeholders in order to be able to widen our research to new areas.” ”Through more attention in the media we can attract many more prominent researchers.” ”By fulfilling our innovation objectives, our research becomes more competitive and can attract more funding by more industrial collaboration.”
6. IMAGE Innovation Strategy
Questions – Image How do we want to be perceived from an innovation perspective? –By the academic world? –By others? What do we have to offer and who is interested in that? What have we achieved so far? What are we really good at? How do we not want to be perceived? Examples: ”We are regarded as the leading Swedish research unit producing research results that will make the IT infrastructure in public organisations significantly more efficient.” ”We want to be regarded as a research group contributing to lower the cost of drug R&D and thereby making more medicine available to people with low income.”
NEXT STEP Innovation Strategy
Appreciation of Today’s Workshop
Relation To Other Strategies The Innovation Strategy should be aligned to other policies such as: –IP –Equal Opportunities –Sustainability –Ethics And of course, the research group’s Research Strategy!
