We are innovation sparring partners.

Pushing great ideas to the market with the help of our innovation management platforms (aka idea Jam or idea management) is definitely a good plan.

But it is also decisive to know, how innovation should lead your company concretely from a point A to point B. Hence to define communication and processes comes into play, and we definitely love to help you with that aim as an experienced sparring partner.

This is what clu can fix for you.

The introduction of a digital innovation solution enables companies to establish a vivid idea community in order to get a higher innovation rate and hence a faster time-to-market for needed ideas.

CLU grows organically within the company.

So that CLU "grows" like a tree in the company, we introduce our system with the appropriate methodology. The focus is basically on sustainable acceptance based on a "train the trainer" concept of the users involved and their targeted integration in order to ensure long-term use. Please note, that this is just an indication and depends on the type and size of a company.

Phase 1: Pilot with a small lead user group. This involves particularly open-minded users in the company with a closely focused task for new ideas, close support and success control. Typical duration: 3 months.

Phase 2: Extended pilot phase with about 3 or 5 times the initial lead user group size. Further opening through viral communication within the company and organic inclusion of further, complementary user groups. Duration: Between 3 and 6 months.

Subsequent phases: Depending on the objective, further expansion of user groups within the company, across departments and locations.
