Practitioner Workshop Overview
Writing an Ideal Vision Statement
An accurate ideal vision statement is used to guide predictions. Students will learn how to define the ultimate ideal vision statement and break it down into sequential innovations leading from the current state of the art too the ultimate ideal.
Revealing Emerging Expectations
Emerging expectations are the requirements customers will have for future products. Designing, developing and delivering new products takes time. To maximize profitability and reduce risk it is essential to know these emerging expectations well in advance. Students will learn how to reveal a continuous progression of expectations from the near term emerging expectations out to the long term ideal vision.
Describing Outcome Statements
Describing Outcome Statements is how to convert fuzzy subjective desires into objective requirements that can be used to evaluate, design, and develop products.
Creating Outcome Diagrams
Outcome Diagrams are a high level visual representation of the requirements customers have for satisfying their desires. These are the real goals customers want as opposed to the functions a product performs or components used to build it. Students will learn how to create detailed Outcome Diagrams for problem solving and high level Outcome Diagrams for creating complete families of innovations.
Most problems result from a dilemma where improving one required feature means harming another required feature. Students will learn how to identify these dilemmas and the assumptions that cause the dilemmas.
5 Steps to Resolve Dilemmas
Problem solving is a specialized limited type of innovation and thus does not need the full set of tools of Predictive Innovation. Students will learn a quick and easy 5 Step process to resolve dilemmas.
The Predictive Innovation Method uses a 3 dimensional hypercube to identify all of the innovation approaches for a particular set of desires. Outcome expansion takes the Outcome diagram and expands it into the detailed organized dimensions so that you can find all the possible innovations for a product, service or industry.
7 Basic Elements of an Outcome
The 7 Elements of an Outcome is one of the dimensions of the hypercube. Students will learn each of the 7 Elements and practice identifying Elements for a number of different case studies and exercises.
15 Alternatives Grid
The Alternatives Grid is the fundamental discovery of Predictive Innovation. It applies to all dimensions and provides structure for predicting innovation concepts and methods of creating those innovations.
Easily Convert Ideas Into Designs
Students will learn how to use the descriptions of innovations found in the Predictive Innovation hypercube to guide making designs. Students will use the 3 dimensions to find alternative methods of solving each problem faster and producing higher quality designs.
105 Innovations for any Product or Service
Students learn how to combine the 3 dimensions of the Predictive Innovation hypercube to describe the 105 Innovation types for each Outcome of any product or service.
Calculating a Preliminary Innovation Quotient
Innovation Quotient is the percentage of the idea space covered by a design or strategy or the untapped Blue Ocean area. Innovation Quotient allows you to objectively evaluate ideas. This allows executives to confidently make more accurate decisions about innovation teams and projects.back to top
