Process Innovation Cells [Resources]

logo 2 i-cellThis is a list of things to be done to support “innovation project management” that goes from the rigorous analysis of opportunities to selling prototypes.. The whole process can be interpreted as a “dynamic task cartography” that has to be adapted to each particular situation.

i&R to evaluate innovation management strategies

In many health processes, related with the assistance in hospitals or with the delivery of services to patients, there is a wide space for improvement. The combination of technology and design with healthcare knowledge will allow better and more cost effective services, and it’s an open door to continuous innovation.

Former research

The combination of complementary models and methods of innovation and design in hundreds of projects gives a perspective about how to select the optimal innovation strategy. But whatever is the method the most important is always the same: Anticipating errors and difficulties and focus the business model.

Process | i-cell [Innovation Cells]

i-cell genral frameworkInnovation Cells” is formerly a strategy for learning  based in the development of real prototypes of new products and services, and test in the market the business models that make them viable. The “i-cell” methodology pretends the involvment of different agents in the design and development of prototypes and in their later explotation: companies, research centres, and public institutions. Innovation Cells Supporting Living LabsA case example. 1st.
