Ideation + Execution = Innovation

BlueCallom Innovation Kick Start Program

Accelerating the innovation start

Guided Innovation Experience

The full lifecycle of a ground breaking innovation

The BlueCallom Innovation Kick Start 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. Today we know how an ideation process in our brain can be stimulated and executed. We help assemble an innovation Dream Team that will quickly be empowered to perform exceptional innovative thinking and execution.

The BlueCallom Kick Start Program is helping teams to move from “Don’t know where to start” to “Cognitive Ideation” and bringing “Innovation to market”. Attendees do not need any special education, definitely no technical background, and complete an innovation talent test.

Objective: A groundbreaking innovation within 3 months.

Starting from a position of strength

Innovation takes 7 to 20 years to become mainstream. Also, each of the growth rates showed exponential growth. You can see this with any development in the past 25 years. What is interesting in recent years: The capital market is in favors innovation over size.

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

All teammates take responsibility even if it is not their job. Everybody in the team is of curious nature, exceptionally courageous and creative, highly communicative, and everybody speaks fluently English.

TIME

This is a full-time program with no time for “other work”. You will want to complete a variety of tasks including market research, in-person customer interviews (no questionnaires), approximately 20 – 30  ideation meetings, refinement meetings, team idea analysis work, market validation interviews, idea refinements, and much more. You and your team will need to focus 100% on the innovation project.
