learn-msgStart With a Business Need and Build an Opportunity Roadmap

Request A Proposal | A sprint measured in weeks turns a business need into a strategic Opportunity Roadmap report. The Opportunity Roadmap is an exploration designed to breakdown corporate business needs and identify competitive advantage opportunities and pathways to solutions in the technical community.

  • Dissolve a corporate business need into core components which can be studied and explored.

  • Conduct a broad patent and research literature landscape study around the corporate business need to identify state of the art and participants in the space. Often the study begins to reveal potential intellectual property capture opportunities. When relevant to the subject matter, a scan of social and public data sources is also conducted.

  • Transform the corporate business need into an innovation challenge and scout at targeted institutes and startup communities to solicit responses from the technical community.

  • Synthesize findings from the study and scans into an actionable Opportunity Roadmap report.

  • Make decisions on who and how best to engage in a PICK from what is found, PARTNER with what’s of interest, and PILOT to accelerate innovation approach.
