Agile Innovation management:
Finding growth with minimum risk

Introduction to Agile Innovation Management

Innovation is critical to the success of any business, and with the rapid pace of technological advancements, it is more important than ever to identify growth opportunities while minimizing risk. An Agile approach is ideally suited to cultivating new opportunities as the methods focus on rapid learning, experimentation, incremental investment, and deep collaboration.

Agile PD Pros provides the skills and tools needed to bring market and technical opportunities to life while mitigating potential risk. Whether you have an established Innovation Management program or just seeking to build in the benefits of Agile, we work closely with you to identify areas for improvement, set metrics, develop leaders and guide implement implementation in a way that minimizes risk and maximizes success, including: 

  1. Building idea and opportunity pipelines using Agile methods
  2. Clarifying the roles in Agile Innovation Management and developing the agile skills to succeed
  3. Providing the framework for innovation governance including prioritization and incremental funding approaches to minimize risk
  4. Methods to develop rapid prototyping and customer engagement strategies

Agile methods, like the MAHD Framework, can turn a frustrating process into a streamlined innovation engine with rapid learning cycles, collaborative tools, and execution transparency.

 Many companies treat advanced R&D and innovation pipelines as separate processes. This can work, but creates unnecessary barriers in communication and inefficiencies. Innovation Management is part of the Complete MAHD Framework to manage entire product development systems from ideation and portfolios to sustaining engineering activities.
