Innovation Acceleration

Sustainable innovation drives product & business model development for future readiness.

Where do new ideas come from and how do you continue to be prepared for an ever-changing R&D landscape in the years ahead? Innovation management can be a challenge to incorporate into existing company structures without guidance from an expert in this topic. 3DSE can provide the program framework, technical expertise and product prototyping to develop a sustainable innovation ‘engine’ to ensure your organization is ready for the future with a competitive edge.

3DSE innovation success

High-risk, high-impact challenges are the focus of 3DSE’s innovation acceleration workshops. Key topics for client innovation are organizational redesign to increase performance, product and technology innovation to drive change under time constraints while staying competitive in their field and business model innovation to develop disruption to the status quo and gain market share. This all adds up to finding the ‘breakthrough’ solution to their specific corporate challenges.

Finding that ‘breakthrough’ solution is where 3DSE comes in. Starting with an 8-day intensive workshop built around behavior-oriented innovation, the outcome is a measurable increase in team performance to identify and implement ‘breakthrough’ solutions.
