Solve tricky product problems quickly and sustainably

Tricky product problems are often sticky and chewy like chewing gum: Whatever you do, you can not get rid of them.

R&D cost trap technology leap

Technology leaps require more one-time costs. As a first reaction, R&D demands more budget, but does not get it that way and yet retains much of its previous development tasks. So it gradually taps into the R&D cost trap. Its second reaction is an increase in efficiency. This often leads to loss of quality and the cancellation of R&D projects. If day-to-day business dominates, technology leaps will be the first to fall by the wayside. At least now, the CEO has to restructure the R&D to prevent a failure of the company. more ….

Innovation timing

The innovation timing determines the innovation success. Innovation projects fail when the environment goes unnoticed, when TTM takes first place instead of innovation quality, when planning ignores technical risks, when the right milestones are missing in early innovation phases, or when innovation teams fail to precisely meet quality milestones. more ….

However, it is being introduced slowly, as the fears about jobs are slowing the process down, as the one-time costs of the first projects are too high, and as the responsibility has been delegated far too low. An enterprise-wide transformation through an innovation project overcomes these barriers. Therefore, human-robot collaboration is an entrepreneurial question for the CEO and CFO. more ….
