The thesis has been performed in collaboration with AB Sandvik Coromant and the division of Functional Product Development at Luleå University of Technology (LTU). With experience from the performed workshops and the results from the evaluating questionnaires there have been developed a five step process called, The RIW-process, which describes how a Radical Innovation Workshop can be performed.
