I'm Innovation Program Manager with 15+ years of combined practical experience in Open Innovation, Technology Assessment and Drug Development, all based on solid industrial and academic background in Project Management, Biotechnology and Life Sciences.
When launching Open Innovation (OI) initiatives, companies face a number of challenging questions. What R&D problems can be successfully solved using the OI strategy? Which particular OI platform to choose from a plethora of available web-based and software products? How are external solutions to be evaluated and then integrated into an internal R&D process?
I help my clients tackle these issues using a simple step-wise approach. First, I work with clients on detailed problem definition in order to decompose complex R&D problems into a set of well-defined technical questions. Second, I help them select the optimal innovation platform(s) to find solutions to each of these questions. Finally, I assist them with creating an internal network for evaluating and implementing external solutions.
