Growth through innovation – Creating efficient development processes
Technological changes such as digitisation, networking, assistance systems or virtualisation all drive innovation. It is important for companies not only to develop technical capabilities, but also to bring about the right impulses for change by decentralising structures and engendering a culture of innovation. Accelerating the development processes, implementing the use of new technologies and agile methods, especially in a regulated environment, poses challenges for many of our clients in aerospace and defence.
We help our clients from the aerospace and defence sector to devise and implement a holistic innovation strategy.
- Implementation of an innovation strategy through exchange platforms, adapted structures, re-vitalising entrepreneurship
- Increased efficiency in development processes from idea to product (business plans, maturity milestones, hybrid development model, risk management, project control)
- Optimisation of external (customers, suppliers) and internal cross-functional interfaces in the development process
- Professionalisation of skills management (transparency of actual and target critical skills, use of personnel management instruments)
- Analysis of existing product portfolios (strengths/weaknesses, gaps)
