How we enable you to innovate better than startups with the scale of an enterprise.
Do you want to build an innovation funnel that allows you to create several innovation initiatives? Do you want to validate the initiatives systematically and quickly, enabling you to identify and invest in only the most promising ones as you progress?
According to Uwe Kirschner, the overarching goal of Bosch Innovation Consulting is to enable Corporate Explorers to validate and incubate their innovation ideas in a fast and structured way.
Why Bosch Innovation Consulting?
There are numerous innovation consultancies offering their services to the external market. Some of the services you see out on the market: services running acceleration for you with internal teams or consultancies helping you to recruit startups to run acceleration with. This relationship with startups is one way you can test whether startups could be a good acquisition target or a joint-venture partner. On the other hand, there are Design Thinking professionals that offer many methods and tools throughout the innovation funnel. As we can see, the mass of offerings really makes it difficult to understand the differences and to choose the one that fits best to you and your company.
One important aspect that differentiates Bosch Innovation Consulting from other consultancies is that we are innovation practitioners in an actual corporation.
We have done it ourselves and we, therefore, know the challenges of driving innovation in a corporate context. We are there to support you when thinking through how to solve all the challenges your company might face.
While other consultancies get things done for you, we enable you to build these innovation systems on your own.
Our work and how we support our customers is very purpose driven. We know that more and more businesses are under threat of disruption. Therefore, we need to design, we need to develop, and we need to successfully implement the next generation of businesses. And we can support you in doing so.
If you want somebody who knows how to do it in corporate, who knows exactly the challenges you will face and is very transparent about it, and if you share the philosophy that most ideas will fail, then you should work with us. You will set up a system to test ideas quickly and efficiently. We are going to enable the people by creating transparency, deliverables, getting rid of innovation theater, and creating ownership in the teams and the projects themselves.
