Reflexiones Inseguras de oriol lloret

En este blog hemos hablado en varias ocasiones de la innovación por los usuarios en las organizaciones. Mi post “El mejor departamento de innovación son tus clientes” llevó a Ramon a escribir sobre Open Innovation. Ha pasado un año de eso y PAtricia Seybold está a punto de sacar su libro sobre “outside Innovation”. Aquí os dejo sus 5 consejos para una estrategia de innovación basada en clientes, y la recomendación de que si os interesa el tema sigais su blog, como ya recomendó Freire hace unos días:
If you’re serious about embarking on a customer innovation journey, I recommend these five steps:
1. Engage lead customers and commercialize their inventions. Your most insightful and passionate customers will improvise new solutions to meet their needs with or without your help. If you tap into their innovations, you can gain a march on your competition.
2. Nurture customer communities. The majority of the organizations profiled in my book have vibrant customer communities that help them push the envelope.
3. Help customers strut their stuff. Customers want to gain respect, admiration, and recognition for their ideas, their contributions, and their accomplishments. You can help them gain cachet and reap rewards for your business in a variety of ways, from leveraging customer-created content, to encouraging customers to support one another, to running contests to ferret out the best ideas.
4. Provide innovation toolkits to help customers achieve their outcomes. Customers are most creative and innovative when they’re trying to achieve their ideal outcomes. There are a variety of tools you can provide that will both empower them to design their own solutions and leverage the domain expertise your firm provides. Some of these tools are electronic design tools; others are co-design methodologies; some include physical components. True innovation takes place naturally when you can help your lead customers leverage the creative tension between the outcome and the experiences they want, and the way things are today.
5. Promote open access and peer production. Whether your products and services are digital or physical, or a combination of the two, today’s customers demand transparency, visibility, and access to the use of your intellectual property. Many of the most dramatic breakthroughs are achieved when your most knowledgeable customers work together to extend or modify your base products in order to co-create a new set of capabilities. Think of all the ways in which you can make it easier for customers to “hack” and extend or modify your products to create something new and valuable.
