This presentation describes Innovare’s Tech Explorer a front-end of innovation process for Technology Discovery. The Tech Explorer provides for an externally focused and facilitated forum for innovation teams and technology experts. During the process, we explore current and emerging technologies; define how the technologies may impact customer needs, and how we can leverage the technologies to enable highly competitive innovations.

  • 1. Innovare’s Technology Discovery Approach Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 2. 2 What Is the Tech Explorer?• The Tech Explorer is an R&D driven process for technology discovery with support from marketing• It provides a facilitated forum for the innovation team plus invited technology experts and lead users• We explore current and emerging technologies, define how they can impact customer needs, and map how the technologies can enable defensible innovation• It provides input for technology planning and helps focus concept development to be consistent with the technology possibilities while addressing customer needs Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 3. 3The Core Premise of the Tech Explorer Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 4. Technology and Customer Needs Interact 4 Customer Needs Technology Advances in science and technology have a dynamic relationship with customer needs • They can be used to create solutions that satisfy existing needs • They can change the environment creating new sets of needs • They can drive latent needs the customer doesn’t even know they have Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 5. Innovator’s Challenge 5 As innovators we need to anticipate emerging needs and define how technologies can enable solutions that provide future performance and delighters characteristics• To achieve sustain competitive advantage innovators should understand: – How customer needs and advancing science and technologies interact and evolve over time – Which technology can enable differentiating products with features that excite customers Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 6. 6The Innovation Tripartite Need Technology Solution • During Tech Explorer projects we consider the 3 key domains of the innovation tripartite to build our knowledge foundation and basis for our technology recomendations Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 7. 7 Three Phases of the Tech ExplorerPhase 1 Secondary Research – identify intriguing technologies that might address customer needs and conduct background researchPhase 2 Discovery with the Experts – invite selected experts to work with us and explore the state of the art and future trajectory of their technologiesPhase 3 Synthesis – define the need/technology/solution relationship, create technology application concepts, and build a road map for bringing in the technology to drive innovation Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 8. Phase 1 Tech Explorer – Secondary Research 8 Categorized UV Resist 20 years Delighter ??? Technology Requirement level • Begin with a customer need • Brainstorm / hypothesize scientific principles that might be applied to deliver product attributes at desired levels • Generate a list of technologies that relay on the scientific principles • Select the most intriguing technologies to research Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 9. 9Individual Team Member Assignments - Tech Briefings • Each team member takes one or two topics • Explores topics using secondary sources – internet, reports… etc. • Creates briefings – what is the technology, the IP landscape – how might the technology evolve – how might it be applied to create solutions – who are the experts Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 10. 10Socializing the Tech Briefings • Workshop environment - 8 – 10 topics • Team members present their briefings • Team create a synthesis of findings with implications & next steps • Select experts to work with in Phase 2 Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 11. 11Phase 2: Discovery with the Experts• Reach out to external experts representing targeted science & technology areas• Hold workshops with experts, exploring the state of the art and anticipated trajectories of their technologies • Brainstorm implications, applications, and impact on needs • Create beginning technology application concepts Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 12. 12Phase 3: SynthesisRequires incubation time for technology application concept refinement • Research and problem solving to build concept feasibility • Vet the list of opportunities to a few feasible solutions • Prototype and test solutionsBuilding the case for the technology • Outline the development or acquisition approach, timing, costs • Define the technology’s impact on the customer & competitive environment • Show anticipated connections of the technology to future product lines • Estimate the impact on the business Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 13. 13 Phase 3 Outputs – Concepts and Road Maps• Technology application concepts – Not fully fleshed out solutions but a representation of what we could do with the technology – How the technology impacts customer needs• Road maps relate the technologies to future New Market Product Line and Technology Potential Technologies Green T product lines Advanced Design New T1 New T2 UV Current Technology Extrusion – Shows timing when technologies could be ready Thermal Distillation and the enabled new products Time Line 2007 Product Lines 2008 2009 2010 2011 2012 Advanced New Gen 2 Gen 3 Gen 4 Gen 1 Platform Enhanced Design New Products First Generation Enhanced Second Generation Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 14. 14Foundations of a Successful Tech Discovery Approach • Well connected to customer needs • Engaged multidisciplinary team • Strong external perspective • Broad opportunity space • Diligent use of synthesis process to identify value paths • Embrace well considered sciences and pursue opportunities outside the comfort zone Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc. All rights reserved.
  • 15. 15 What Will the Tech Explorer Provide?• A perspective of the technology landscape for the business or product area – Based on internal and external experts, both short and long term• Descriptions of relevant technologies – How they could interact with customer needs and be deployed• Visions for applying each technology – At different levels of customer satisfaction using a Kano model• Needs/technology/product maps – Provides a framework for the strategic dialog, helping with R&D and product line planning Copyright © 2000-2012, Innovare, Inc.
