Creating new concepts, products and services with user driven innovation
Nordic Council of Ministers, Nordic Innovation2010 (English)Book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
User driven innovation is emerging as one of the successful ways of creating breakthrough innovations for companies and organisations. Based on our research we have been able to identify four generic methods of working with user driven innovation: user test, user exploration, user innovation and user participation. Even though these methods might vary slightly from one company to the other, they have some basic features which are common. When working with users, companies might chose to include the users either directly or indirectly in the innovation process, depending on what type of knowledge the company wants to obtain from the user. Users’ ability to communicate and express their problems and needs varies greatly and will also influence the user driven innovation method chosen by a company.
