BlueCallom Corp Innovation Accelerator

Accelerating the innovation process by order of magnitude

Guided Innovation Experience

The full lifecycle of a ground breaking innovation

The BlueCallom Implementation Accelerator program is designed for teams to rapidly develop a major innovation or groundbreaking internal transformation. Up until very recently, ideas were thought to be random and accidental, but they are not. Humankind only survived due to its exceptional ingenuity. Moreover, all developed nations are built on the ingenuity of a fast-growing number of innovations. From the pyramids in Egypt, the Domo of Florence, the steam engine, the Internet… to just name a few brought prosperity to the respective nation. And to those who innovated.

The BlueCallom Implementation Accelerator is helping teams to move from “Don’t know where to start” to “Neuro Ideation” and “Innovation to market” implementation. Attendees do not need any special education, definitely no technical background, only an open mind, being normal creative, and communicative.

Objective: A groundbreaking innovation within 4 to 6 months.

Why are we so sure about the results?

  1. We know from neuroscience and also from our own experience as entrepreneurs, as well as experiences with startups we guided to groundbreaking innovation in the past years, that creating ideas is neither accidental nor random. Based on the understanding, how our brain composes ideas, we are able to stimulate innovative ideas and come to groundbreaking ideas within two weeks on average. The BlueCallom Neuro ideation process is far more predictable than any conventional brainstorming and is never hoping for ideas but ideas can be expected with the right inputs.
  2. The initial value of an idea is zero. While an innovative idea is only a spark that triggers a whole innovation process, it is essential. The value of innovation is created through its distribution into the designated market. The duality of a brilliant idea and relentless execution is driving innovation success. One is nothing without the other.

BlueCallom Implementation Accelerator – Logistics & Requirements

TECHNOLOGY

You always have access to high-speed Internet, a webcam and a microphone. You have a large screen or a high-resolution laptop. You can make PPT presentations. Due to the nature of the tools, you cannot participate by using your smartphone or tablet.

MARKET ACCESS

In order to gather customer insights and perform a market validation, you will need to have permission to access some of your top customers. You will need to get in touch with users at your customer by email or phone, yet never do any survey.

PERSONALITY

You are either a generalist or a specialist and you know the difference. You are used to making decisions on your own.  You can solve problems on your own and you have an entrepreneurial mindset. You take responsibility even if it is not your job. You enjoy working in teams and are highly communicative. Your English is absolutely fluent.

TIME

This is a full-time program with nearly no time for “other work”. Between sessions, you will want to complete tasks that are not “homework” but leading to real world results.

CORPORATE REQUIREMENTS

The company needs to conduct an open and transparent company culture and has an equally open and transparent relationship with its customers, partners and market player. Innovation “in the dark” meaning isolated in labs will not work in this program. The Innovation team will need to have permission to speak freely with customers and involve selected customers in the project. Public companies need to provide the innovation team with non-disclosure agreements to be signed by anybody that is involved in the process to comply with investor protection regulations.
