  1. 1. SLIDESETCLUSTERMANAGEMENT.PPTX © innovation-3; Any unauthorized copying, reproduction or distribution is strictly prohibited Service Offering Achieving a new level of excellence in the innovation cluster
  2. 2. SLIDESETCLUSTERMANAGEMENT.PPTX © innovation-3; Any unauthorized copying, reproduction or distribution is strictly prohibited Is this your situation? You are in a leadership / management role of an innovation cluster. The cluster is formally set up and a number of innovation projects are running. However, there is growing concern whether the innovation cluster is providing the value it was supposed to generate. - 2 - ● Discussions about the future of the innovation cluster and its strategy are becoming less productive ● Major stakeholders of the innovation cluster are becoming less satisfied with the results delivered ● There is not enough cross-project exchange of expertise ● You are wondering if there is a stringent and compact process that will open up a new level of excellence for the innovation cluster ● You also wonder whether this process can be designed in a way so that all relevant factors for innovation cluster excellence can be considered ● And finally you are wondering how other leading innovation clusters are working on becoming excellent

SLIDESETCLUSTERMANAGEMENT.PPTX © innovation-3; Any unauthorized copying, reproduction or distribution is strictly prohibited Then, innovation-3 might provide the solution ● We are running a compact project that focuses on the Key Success Factors for cluster excellence ● Usually in innovation clusters there is a complex mesh-up of stakeholders and their expectations – We are aware of this and act accordingly ● We build our project on compact yet productive analyses (without “boiling the ocean”) and highly engaging workshops with state-of-the-art Design Thinking techniques ● We come up with an implementation plan that highlights where and how the cluster needs to be developed in order to reach the next level of excellence - 3 -
  4. 4. SLIDESETCLUSTERMANAGEMENT.PPTX © innovation-3; Any unauthorized copying, reproduction or distribution is strictly prohibited In our work with leading innovation clusters we have found that there are 9 Key Success Factors for cluster excellence - 4 - Stakeholder Management Shared strategy Consensus on goals, priorities and measuring Balanced com- mercial interests Targeted inte- gration of external partners Value-add on all levels Close, trustful co-operation Effective organization Commonly shared, inspiring, easy-to- communicate vision … explicitely adressing • IP • Leadership • Role business • Role society • Customer groups • Value Chain • Roadmaps • … • Projects • Cross-project topics • Operative value-add • Strategic value-add

  7. 7. SLIDESETCLUSTERMANAGEMENT.PPTX © innovation-3; Any unauthorized copying, reproduction or distribution is strictly prohibited In designing the “Value-add on all levels”, leading clusters use the “knowledge triangle” thinking model - 7 - Master class Campus Schools and camps Living labs Management courses Project 1 Technology intelligence Testbeds and simulation tools Commercialization of spill-over IP EDUCATION: Enabling a new generation of technology-savvy entrpreneurs RESEARCH: Enabling excellent individuals and multidisciplina- ry teams to develop break- through ideas INNOVATION: Enabling leading firms and institutes to capture the value of ideas Project n Planned for year x+1 / x+2 Planned for year x+3 / x+4
  8. 8. SLIDESETCLUSTERMANAGEMENT.PPTX © innovation-3; Any unauthorized copying, reproduction or distribution is strictly prohibited In designing an „Effective organization“ we have found that „Focus Teams“ are a strong approach for achieving Management focus and for ensuring cluster development - 8 - Advisory Board / Steering Committee Expansion routes / External partners Internal collabo- ration Industry / university ties Legal and contractual issues External communi- cation Managing Directors ● Advisory Board delegates stra- tegy implemen- tation / struc- tural issues to „Focus Teams“ ● Focus Teams discuss / work out details ● Focus Team submit decision memo to Advisory Board ● Advisory Board according to defined voting procedures ● Focus Teams in- form MD’s on decisions made ● MD’s operatio- nalize decisions ● MD’s bring points that need Advisory Board aware- ness to the attention of the relevant Focus Team
