The Innovation Integrator® Model

The Innovation Integrator® model has 11 factors, that when brought together, define and enable effective innovation to take place. Each factor is as important as the next and all 11 factors must be addressed for innovation to happen and to create a solid route to commercialisation.

People

At the outset, through the development stages and at market entry, people are vital to the idea, its development and its delivery to market. The type and number of people change through the process.

Lead Entrepreneur

A driving force within the organisation must champion the process or product at every stage to maintain momentum.

Innovation Assets

Equipment that can be used to assess, prove, scale-up and develop the process, product or service is essential. It can be too expensive for many companies due to the scale and the associated risk. This risk can be alleviated by partnering with an asset based technology and innovation centre.

Market Need

There must be an actual or perceived need for your process, product or service to ensure continued demand once the product is launched. Sales and market planning will be essential for success.

Value and Price Combination

Your process, product or service must have a combination of price and value that makes it attractive to customers and consumers. It must meet a need and be seen as having sufficient value that the user is prepared to pay for it.

Supply Chain

Without a supply chain that stretches from raw material to finished product and dealing with end of life it will be impossible to manufacture your product and deliver it to market.

Legislators / Regulators

Legislators and regulators have the power to support the adoption of your product or to prevent its release. They need to be closely involved in your innovation to ensure you are able to sell your process or product.

Independant Endorsement

It simply isn’t enough that you think it is a viable proposition, third party recognition is vital.

Underpinning Science

A constant need and driver – from the initial discovery or intervention to continuing academic support as your company evolves.

Intellectual Property

Protecting the ideas that underpin your process or product is as important as the concept itself. From patents and copyright to registered design and know-how your intellectual property must be safeguarded.

Money

Regardless of the source – seed, angel, venture capital, corporate or public – money is vital at every step of the way. The level of need and the type of funding changes through the innovation process.

How does the Innovation Integrator® Work?

The CPI team will work closely with you throughout the assessment process. The following steps show the actions CPI will take in order to successfully carry out an Innovation Integrator® assessment;

  • Step 1 - Engagement

    CPI works with you to understand your innovation challenges and explain the CPI Innovation Integrator® model.

  • Step 2 - Assessment

    CPI will meet you to work through the assessment process, to identify where you sit on the innovation continuum in relation to the 11 factors.

  • Step 3 - Review

    Upon completion of the assessment CPI will review the input and create a feedback report based on the results of the assessment. The report will identify the innovation factors that need to be addressed to move forward.

  • Step 4 - Results

    CPI will share the assessment results with you and discuss next steps to help your company create an innovation plan.
