Innovation management

Innovation management is occupying an ever large place in structured companies. We are seeing new professions emerge in innovation departments and innovation units, and innovation manager posts in R&D or Marketing departments.
In support of these new professions, we have developing training courses with the objectives of:

  • Positioning innovation within corporate processes
  • Identifying, generating, and structuring opportunities to build an innovation project portfolio
  • Managing innovation projects with a multidisciplinary team
  • Using the power of Open Innovation

Innovation tools

In addition to training modules on innovation management, we have also developed modules centred on the different tools regularly used in innovative projects based on our practices with customers: Design thinking / New business model / Lean start­-up / Anticipation studies / Value engineering / Risk management

Setting up collaborative projects

Efficient Innovation is somewhat of a leader in France in this kind of expertise. In our continuing efforts to transfer skills to our customers, our teams have built a number of modules covering the main aspects of this complex activity: 

  • Identifying the right funding / screening a project portfolio
  • Searching for partners / creating a consortium
  • Managing the key points of a winning application for each funding instrument
  • Managing collaborative projects
