We contribute with two new articles to the new compendium published by Springer. A case study of Aravind Eye Care Systems analyses an outstanding successful case of values-based innovation in processes, products, services, business model and even networks reaching beyond the company. The book is so far published in German only.
How can Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) become a mainstream building component? What are the motivating values behind such a development, and what business models should be pursued to support these values? We are working for an international group of reseachers and practitioners of the International Energy Agency in Uppsala, Sweden.
We captured directive values in European BIPV business to develop new business models for making BIPV a mainstream building component. Based on an initial collection and discussion of values 18 new business ideas have been identified. Two of these ideas were elaborated upon using the Business Innovation Kit, named Power2Consumers and Photovoltaic Catalogue. Two groups worked to sketch viable business models for each ideas and described five business models in more detail. Thanks and regards to a highly engaged group of participants!

Together with colleagues of Lufthansa Systems and Nokia Networks we are conducting a session on Gamification in Innovation at this years ISPIM conference in Porto, Portugal. Come and join us taking values-based business model innovation to the next level.
In collaboration with the International Society for Professional Innovation Management (ISPIM) we invite you to participate in a workshop at the HMKW Berlin on Gamification in Innovation. We are expecting about 30 participants from Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Switzerland, Poland, Russia and Canada. Engaging with a group of innovation management professionals from industry and academia Henning and Adam will model values-based and sustainable business strategies and demonstrate the Business Innovation Kit in action. Here you find the slides.
The latest extension set to the Business Innovation Kit facilitates modelling customer journeys. Nine cards help you address the seven touchpoints:
I. Become aware
III. Acquire / Buy
IV. Start Up
VII. Dispose / Renew
How do customers and / or stakeholders proceed from one to the next? How should the journey look and feel like? Which motives, requirements or fears need to be addressed?
First, select one of the relevant customer or stakeholder groups
and take an imaginary walk through their journey. That means
their overall experience with your company, its products and
services. Alternatively start collecting ideas for each touchpoint.
Then select a stakeholder group and draw its journey line from one
touchpoint idea to the next. Enrich your ideas with photographs
and original quotes from customer feedback or internal staff.
