KPMG Innovation Factory

KPMG Innovation Factory

Innovation Factory is a great way to tap in to the collective brainpower of everyone inside or even outside the organization (crowdsourcing). In an exciting way, large populations or small expert groups are engaged and involved to share and enrich ideas and thereby address the challenges the organization faces. Innovation Factory is supported by a well-established idea management software and methodology.

Innovation Factory in a nutshell:

  • The innovation sponsors select the challenge for the organisation that they would like to target. In addition, they will gather an internal coaching team.
  • The internal coaching team is trained and guided by KPMG coaches.
  • During a four week online innovation campaign, both internal and external stakeholders can participate in the generation of innovative ideas. Ideas will grow because of the collaboration across disciplines and networks which enables cross-pollination of knowledge sharing.
  • A proven, structured and transparent idea selection process selects a short-list of the most promising ideas. The selected idea owners will generate a business case that they will present to the decision makers. The decision makers decide which ideas will be implemented in the organisation.
  • The innovation challenge project is supported by tested tools, methodologies and templates (business cases, communication plan,…) that are tailored to the needs of the company.
