42T’s Dr Alan Hart keynote for Engineering Design Show on Innovation process
Presentation titled ‘Treasure Maps and Minefields: How the way you create and evaluate new product ideas can benefit from a structured approach.’
42T’s Director of Product Innovation, Dr Alan Hart, gave a keynote presentation at the Engineering Design Show Reconnect’s online event on Weds, 27 April 2022 from 12.50pm.
Alan set out to show how mapping out the space in which you’re innovating can lead to a wider spread of innovative ideas from your ideation process, better product ideas, and better technical solutions.
Used wisely, these sorts of techniques also provide a great framework for circumnavigating the patent minefields that competitors create. Examples of innovation mapping in practice were shown.
