ChangePlanners: Innovation Planning Process

Denotes how to achieve innovative change successfully by identifying a proven, universally applicable, top down innovation planning approach to: strategic, conceptual, requirement definition, product definition, and program/project planning. It provides leaders the tools and a recommended organizational structures as well as roles to play, that enables them to reduce risk and become effective innovators.

This provides a crisp, clear, concise assessment of a “Top Down” innovation planning model – proven successful by leading edge aerospace, computer, military, and telecommunications firms to be an effective tool for reducing risk, increasing success of new products in the marketplace, lowering lifecycle costs, reducing repair/maintenance costs, insuring faster cycle times from concept to market, and improving quality – while improving flexibility and greater responsiveness to a drastically changing marketplace that involves complex financial considerations, dependent upon: new environmental factors, technical possibilities, and market requirements.

Here, the lost skill set of – innovation – strategic/tactical planning – product development – complex program management – is restored, enabling the new leaders of innovation… the ChangeMakers… to transform vision into action – fostering creativity and the movement of ideas to successful completion. In so doing it provides for specific checkpoints that enable proper decision making as well as proposes an organizational structure that facilitates the orchestrating of multiple programs and projects utilizing the varied talents of many disciplines across an organization to successfully deliver products and services… economically, efficiently, effectively for the exciting, challenging new information marketplace. This becomes an extremely powerful vehicle for managing risk and insuring success.

It ties strategies to tactics and operations – closing the great gap that have hindered effective execution of upper-management’s near and long term goals and strategies while removing the development and operations organizations from the endless cycle of crash projects, fire drills, and reactive – “get it done yesterday” initiatives that no one could be proud of at completion.

Here, a series of separate stand alone products come together to form an end-to-end solution for today’s demanding competitive arena: The missing Front-End process – Requirements Definition and Qualification process – New Innovation Organization structure – Conceptual Innovation Planning process – that are tied directly to real time implementation steps so planning is brought down from the clouds to the real world. This could be re named “The Effective Planning Model.”

The Information Society is not just for computer & communications firms – it impacts every sector of industry, government, and military. ChangeLeaders denotes where and when to apply the ChangeMaker model in the information marketplace by assessing the phases of evolving market needs and opportunities in concert with the periods of technical possibilities in the emerging Global Information Society.
