Agile and Lean Innovation

Innova8™ is a unique process that fits into Agile and Lean facilitating DevOps Organisational Design

Transformation and Change through Innova8™ Process

Agile World owns the worldwide rights to the innovation process Innova8™ developed by Karl Smith.

Innova8™ combining design thinking, service design and user experience for Business and Agile / Lean DevOps.

Innova8™ is a process that fits into Agile and Lean, facilitating DevOps Organisational Design and brings the business closer to their customers through a lens of digital technology and customer validated interactive behaviours.

Design Thinking should never be used to define software, it’s the wrong method. It will create software that only executives want to use, not customers

Design Thinking is a great method to distil the strategic needs of an organisation defining ‘How do we make money’ and ‘What are our services’. Service Design defines ‘How a service works’ and the interrelated model to setup, deliver and manage services, defining customer touchpoints, potential communication routes, digital technologies and key interaction models for a defined service in a blueprint. UX engages directly with customers to deliver the detailed product blueprint for communication routes, digital technologies and their individual key interaction models.

Interview with Karl Smith, CEO of Agile World about Agile transformation: Faster, smarter and responsive marketing

Valuable Innovation is not a way to package the ideas of internal staff into a product,

innovation is a way to meet the target market on their ground, engage with them and co-create a product with the intended users

bringing in business and regulatory perspectives at the right point to deliver something completely new, market ready and truly engaging.
