Innovation labs

Create, prototype and test assumptions rapidly to identify and validate opportunities for competitive advantage 

Creating a Culture of Innovation

Innovation is a vital component of any business that wants to overcome strategic challenges and create competitive advantage. Innovation is a process which involves dedicated time, talent and resource. 

Ionology’s innovation labs seek not only to help organisations create innovations, but also to create a culture that understands, supports and embeds innovation throughout the organisation. 

HOW DO IONOLOGY’S INNOVATION LABS WORK?

Ionology’s innovation labs are structured around Sprints.

Sprints are an agile methodology for overcoming the problems identified in strategy planning. They are not a replacement for strategy planning but rather a process tool for rapidly creating, prototyping and testing solutions to identified strategic challenges.

Sprints are not on-demand, but require careful planning and timetabling. Ionology will facilitate Sprints and can provide technical and design expertise to assist with prototyping and solution finding. The outcome of a Sprint is the testing of a prototype (except with bronze 1 day option).

The process of Digital Transformation pinpoints exactly where innovation is required in order to overcome strategic challenges and identify new competitive advantage. Ionology’s innovation labs deliver the experiments needed to test assumptions.
