INNOVATION LOOP | Die Idee ist nichts, Umsetzung ist alles.
Innovation is evolution

and a continuous process

LEARN MORE!

The FUTURE CANDY Innovation Loop is a holistic approach to innovation development for companies and institutions of all types, sizes, and industries. Consisting of INSPIRE, IDEATE, MAKE, and EVALUATE, the method stands for a continuous and interlocking process focused on the targeted and collaborative development of product/service, process, as well as business model innovation. Innovation Loop has no beginning and no end, but starts where it makes sense and is necessary.

Innovation Loop
INSPIRE
INSPIRE

At the beginning of every innovation is… inspiration! The FUTURE CANDY Innovation Loop starts where the very first spark is. INSPIRE takes management and employees alike on a journey into the (near) future and creates a crossing understanding about the world of tomorrow. After our lectures, trend reports, study trips and technology trainings, you will know which aspects of the digital transformation will particularly (affect)your company and how you should respond to these developments.

IDEATE
IDEATE

Inspired? Now it should be just sparkling with ideas! In the IDEATE phase, we work together on “unpleasant” questions and problems with the help of our formats and state-of-the-art creative methods. Whether with our proprietary method “Innovation Hacking” or the well-known innovation methods such as “Design Thinking”, “Ideation” or “Creative Prototyping” – we always work customer-centric and provide relevant input to develop concrete ideas for product/service, process and business model innovation in a collaborative process.

MAKE
MAKE

“Idea is nothing, execution is everything!”. Your workforce is inspired, the corporate culture begins to change, we have developed concrete ideas together. Now it goes to the implementation! In the MAKE phase, a project team, consisting of your employees and our experienced innovation developers, takes over the complete management of innovation projects. MAKE is the core phase of the FUTURE CANDY Innovation Loop and “materializes” thoughts, ideas and visions.

EVALUATE
EVALUATE

Innovation development is a continuous, iterative process. Without founded data analysis and corresponding derivations, no serious project progress can be guaranteed. In the EVALUATE phase, we test the jointly developed prototype or the correspondingly iterated minimum viable product directly in the user market, evaluate the data obtained, derive recommendations for action for the next evolutionary stage and make it fit for the final launch. Once the EVALUATE phase is completed, the FUTURE CANDY Innovation Loop starts with the approach that matches the project status.

THAT'S WHY YOU NEED TO WORK WITH THE INNOVATION LOOP
  1. With the Innovation Loop you will no longer miss any trends, you will anticipate developments and outline appropriate solutions
  2. The Innovation Loop challenges traditional thought patterns, structures and processes and develops employees and teams further
  3. With the Innovation Loop, you implement innovation projects efficiently and effectively in a collaborative process
  4. The Innovation Loop opens up new and sustainable revenues
THE INNOVATION LOOP
AVAILABLE IN THREE SUBSCRIPTIONS!

The FUTURE CANDY Innovation Flat is an innovation program that lasts three, six or 12 months. We support and advise institutions and companies on the basis of a sound basic analysis in the definition and implementation of an innovation strategy as well as an associated process and implement innovation projects as an external sparring partner; from the idea via prototype and MVP to the tested, market-ready and integration-ready end product. With the Innovation Flat, institutions and companies subscribe to an external innovation team with all the services of the Innovation Loop – at a fixed monthly flat rate.

After three months, the innovation strategy and the innovation process adapted to the structure are in place. The INSPIRE phase brings your employees “up to date” regarding future developments. In addition, the IDEATE phase generates several valid ideas.

*This is an exemplary representation. The duration of the respective loop phases usually varies from customer and project.

After three months, the innovation strategy and the innovation process adapted to the structure are in place. The INSPIRE phase brings your employees “up to date” regarding future developments. In addition, the IDEATE phase generates several valid ideas.

The ideas outlined in the IDEATE phase are implemented as prototypes in a joint project group in the MAKE phase. In the EVALUATE phase, the prototypes are tested directly in the user market and iterated into the Minimum Viable Product.

*This is an exemplary representation. The duration of the respective loop phases usually varies from customer and project.

After three months, the innovation strategy and the innovation process adapted to the structure are in place. The INSPIRE phase brings your employees “up to date” regarding future developments. In addition, the IDEATE phase generates several valid ideas.

The ideas outlined in the IDEATE phase are implemented as prototypes in a joint project group in the MAKE phase. In the EVALUATE phase, the prototypes are tested directly in the user market and iterated into the Minimum Viable Product.

After the second EVALUATE phase, in which the corresponding Minimum Viable Product (MVP) is tested by means of BETA-Go-Live, further iteration steps are developed deriving from this in a second IDEATE phase. In the subsequent MAKE and EVALUATE phases, the implementation of the MVP to a market-ready and integration-ready final product takes place.

*This is an exemplary representation. The duration of each loop phase usually varies by customer and project.

THAT'S WHY THE INNOVATION FLAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU
  1. With the Innovation Flat you subscribe to your external and therefore conflict-free innovation team
  2. The Innovation Flat is available in three variants that build on each other in a modular fashion
  3. The Innovation Flat guarantees clearly defined outcomes after each module
  4. And best of all: The Innovation Flat is up to 30% cheaper than a highly qualified full-time employee
