WHAT IS FALAK INNOVATION?
At Falak Innovation we help companies grow and excel through innovation in their operations, products, services and business models. The Falak Innovation process is Agnostic, Collaborative and Iterative.
Agnostic means that we don’t subscribe or adhere to one single innovation theory or process. We take your unique culture and situation into consideration.
We always start with a deep dive, then choose the best process for you.
Collaborative means we don’t have the answer, we’ll work with you to find the best solution(s). We know that the most innovative ideas emerge when everyone works together in an environment of trust, cooperation and collaboration. We believe that you should never let your consultant tell you what’s best.
Iterative means that we absorb feedback and make appropriate corrections. We believe in the notion of continuous improvement. Agile is best - the process is -and must be- flexible.
FALAK INNOVATION INFLUENCES
As mentioned, in Falak we don’t subscribe to a single innovation theory or process; we are influenced by many different schools of thought including Design Thinking, The Lean Startup, Blue Ocean Strategy, Ten Types of Innovation, Agile Development, Frugal Innovation (Jugaad) and others.
THE FALAK INNOVATION PROCESS
Our innovation process is shown below:
We always start with a deep dive to gain a proper understanding of your unique situation, and to develop empathy with you and/or your clients and users. Only once the deep dive is complete will we work on defining the current challenge as accurately as possible.
This is followed by a process of collaborative and iterative ideation. Though we want this process to be as creative and flexible as possible, it also needs to have pre-determined parameters and a deadline. Innovation is a lot more successful when boundaries are set, and a timeline is determined – with a margin of flexibility of course.
Ideation is followed by prototyping and testing. As with the previous stage, this process requires the right mix of flexibility and defined parameters to get the most out of the process. The next step is partnering with the right technology partner, if appropriate, depending on the nature of the innovation project. Lastly, we go into the implementation stage.
It is worth noting that these steps are not always followed in the exact order, with many stages running simultaneously, and often retreating back into each other.
The end result however, should be a final product, service or improvement that both parties are happy with.
