Organizing4Innovation offers tailored online guidance for innovation teams
We provide idea-owners with the tools and support they need to write a clear project description and a compelling business case that deserve funding and attention from senior management.
Thereby, we shift the burden to prove whether an idea is worth pursuing to the idea-owner, making that minimum resources and time commitment are required from the organization to support early-stage teams.
The objective progress and performance metrics we provide enable organizations to compare teams and prioritize funding, even if they support just one team or have teams operating in very different contexts.
By helping teams to deliver better results faster, we turn innovation into a revenue-generating process that delivers results.
It can be tempting to look at Google, Apple, Amazon and other innovative companies to copy their best practices. These firms invest between 10% and 20% of their revenues on innovation and support hundreds of innovation projects. For example, Amazon spent $22.6 Billion On R&D in 2017.
Very few firms can afford to innovate on that same scale. If your innovation budget is between $100k and $4M, and you support between 1 and 100 innovation projects, you will need to be smarter and more cost-effective in the way you innovate.
For those organizations, we have found the best way to guide innovation teams and objectively compare their progress and performance. Use our T4 approach to identify winning teams, make innovation investments in a timely and equitable manner, and obtain the best possible results. Always.
If you want to get you started right away with your team, use the online T4 accelerator program. We recommend incorporating the T4 innovation process if you support multiple innovation teams a year and want to establish a culture for innovation that lasts. And if you support more than 20 innovation teams per year and want to make the T4 approach yours, consider licensing the T4 platform.

Is your team set up for success?
We can tell if an innovation team is on the path to success. You can compare it with the minor and major leagues in baseball. Before investing in and letting players play in the major league, they are tested and vetted in the minor league. Similarly, we give teams the opportunity to prove themselves in the early phases of the innovation process, before large sums are spent on the development and implementation phases.
We have developed a short 12 question assessment that you can use to test if your team is set up for success and ready to proceed to the development phase.

What our clients say about us
"We've been notified that we have been awarded the contract due to merit and them liking the value proposition. This a huge win and boost of confidence for our new direction, and I'd like to thank you for your part in this outcome!"
"Our advisory board told the partners that we should work much more with a strategy, starting with the current strategy business development for the Netherlands, use that as a basis for the other countries in which we work, and then look at where we want to expand / tap new markets / etc. Finally, I feel acknowledged. Hopefully this is the end of our ad-hoc approach and that we can start working in a much more concrete and strategic way."
Anna Everding - Business Developer KCAP
"You have no idea how grateful I am for all the help I received from you during this process. If I could award a Nobel Prize, it would go to you!"
