Development Management
Coaching of innovation projects


Due to vanishing industry boundaries, the internationalization of markets, shorter product life cycles, and stronger expression of demand markets, companies are exposed to a steadily increasing pressure to innovate nowadays. The functions involved in the innovation process are increasingly exposed to tensions between discipline and creativity. For this reason, an efficient innovation management is necessary to bring innovative ideas to market in an effective and efficient way. With regard to the management of innovation projects, we can support you with systematic, methodical, and customer-oriented product development. In respect to pilot projects, we can accompany you in strategic market and product positioning as well as derivation and cost-side assessment of possible alternative concepts and implementation. The procedures and methods applied in the project can be anchored with the help of training within the company.
