Key to gaining speed and de-risking investment in innovation projects
Often when teams focus on innovation they are hyper-focused on the product or service that they are looking to bring to market. Later, once significant investments have been made, they are frustrated to learn that their great innovation is getting derailed because of two key reasons. First, is they didn’t plan ahead and act thoroughly when it came to securing their intellectual property. Second, is because the financial model is associated with their innovation is outdated or not believed by those holding the purse strings for the next stage.
