Affordable Innovaton Consulting for Growing Business

Innovation is a necessary strategy to stay in business in our fast paced business climate. By developing a practical system of processes, people and tools, you can make the most of your intellectual capital -- your team's ideas, knowledge and insights.

Small business teams can become more productive and more focused on their strengths when they actively turn ideas into marketable products, services and systems that drive company growth and profitability.

It is helpful to have a knowledgable industry contact act as a sounding board to explore confidential ideas about mission, trends, concepts and product portfolios. Ask questions, bounce ideas around, learn about resouces for funding, design, production...etc. Call once...call weekly...call when you need to voice ideas or concerns and get support and feedback.

Sometimes individuals on your team need a boost in self-confidence and strategies to get their ideas heard above the roar? A humorous, gentle, encouraging approach to strengthening shy or new creatives into recognizing strengths can turn their ideas into presentable plans.

Need to develop an in-house attitude of innovation? Kickstart the process with a practical system. The Active Innovation Management System is simple, comprehensive and practical for small teams in small businesses who are focused on growth and profitability.

Your best ideas will come from a well chosen, well prepared team of your most knowledgeable team members. A meeting coordinator can help you define your goal, select the innovation team and moderate the process. Innovation consultants provide tools to help you follow-up on the session to prioritize the ideas and delegate to move the best to the next step in the innovation process.

If you have too many ideas and can't stay focused, a few helpful innovation tools and oversite of your innovation portfolio can help you target your strengths and manage your weaknesses. Project management techniques can help you stay focused on success. Enthusiasm and common sense will take you farther -- and faster.
