THE DAYS AFTER TOMORROW – WHAT IF FUTURE BECOMES REALITY?

Almost exactly ten years ago, we in the future_bizz network created the scenario study “Future Living”. It was on the matter of how our lives will be look like in Europe in 2030. Today, a decade later, it unfor­tu­n­ately seems to turn out that the study predicted actual develo­p­ments quite well. The question is now: How […]

Innovation excel­lence

Successful innovation requires innovation excel­lence as the ability to develop and implement new ideas. Innovation excel­lence requires organi­sa­tional skills, but also includes the innovation culture as well as methods, techno­logies and tools.future_bizz supports organi­sa­tional develo­pment and helps with the use of methods and tools.

Coöpe­rative value creation

More and more often, new business ideas can no longer be realized by companies on their own.

Framing the Future — Which Instru­ments are at our disposal?

The previous articles in our series “Navigating Complexity” discussed the essence of changes and options for action in our VUCA world. This issue will present instru­ments, which help to make comple­xities and inter­re­la­tions of forces of chances more trans­parent, and thus enable developing powerful frame­works of the future.

Do we need clearly defined innovation processes? And what should they look like?

Many companies do not distin­guish suffi­ci­ently between innovation processes and product develo­pment processes, such as pre-develo­pment. As a result, they limit their capability to innovate as well as their future-viability while at the same time generating internal conflicts. In this article, we would like to point out the importance of clearly defined and tailor-made innovation processes, […]
