Kristof Ferris: A Human-Centered Framework to Boost the Adoption of Innovative New Products

Most new products launched to market fail. This applies to from the start-up and up to the more established and well resourced multi-national companies, therefore it is a systemic problem. The reasons for failure tend to fall into 4 categories:

  1. The product was poorly conceived;
  2. Failures in the resourcing and execution of R&D and Design;
  3. Failures in preparation, timing, resourcing, and execution of brand building, marketing, and sales activities;
  4. The product and/or company reputation was damaged.

Even if a new product was well-conceived and correct for creating a new market to meet an unfulfilled need, or to gain a competitive advantage in established markets, it can still end up being a commercial failure. This webinar introduces an enhanced framework to better understand the diversity and complexity in customer types, interactions, and influences that impact the purchase of new products. The aim is to improve the devising, resourcing, timing, and execution of strategies and tactics to improve the adoption of innovative new products and reduce new product failure rates.

Robert Bernhofen: Creativity in Thought, Global in Reach, Innovation in Action - Open Innovation

This presentation takes a fresh look at Open Innovation through the lens of an organization’s intellectual property (IP). It introduces the concept of IP and the need for patent protection. It recognizes how highly-creative ideas from a diverse range of participants can enrich the ability to generate innovative outcomes. Discussion centers on the tradeoff between IP sharing and protection, and what can be done to innovate valuable outcomes while not losing control of one’s IP.

Specifically, it examines: 

  1. where great ideas come from that can lead to innovative breakthroughs;
  2. how diversity in social networks and engagement is essential to creating value; 
  3. what the risks to open innovation are, namely the theft of IP; and
  4. what can be done to mitigate these risks while fostering highly-collaborative outcomes?

Various management practices, collaboration methods, teaming options, and contractual actions are presented to highlight how OI and IP protection can be simultaneously achieved. Time permitting, case summary examples are given to showcase how some companies succeed at this while, at the same time, capitalize on patent protection.
