Innovation Specialist / Chief Passion Officer

«Almost every company and every manager that I encounter is moving forward at full speed and with a full load.

There is little time left to improve, to develop innovations, to set the direction for the future - to create sustainable value.

Studies show that 35-40% of the activities in a service company add no value. If you managed to eliminate all of these, your work week would be over by Wednesday evening!

A huge potential for innovation that many companies only approach with hesitation.

Unfortunately nobody is going to make you any presents to get there.

«There is no [COPY+PASTE]-trick to boost your innovation.»

 

You have to develop your company's innovation capability.

For more than 10 years I have been working successfully with small teams and large organizations to grow their innovation "muscles" and increase their implementation power.
Step-by-step. With high ambitions.

We are passionate about high performing and innovative human beings and companies.

We enable your employees and managers to tackle the challenges, to create and to steer.
The Goal: to increase your innovation capability - to deliver impressive results.

Welcome to LUDENSFABER.»

(my most recent tweets)


These Challenges are our Specialties.

 

#1 improve.

How to use "lean" successfully and in an innovative way - and not just squeeze out costs or employees.

35-40% of the activities in a service company bind resources while not adding value.   A password sticker on the internet router reduces thousands of calls to the hotline.

#2 create.

How to design and to stage great customer experiences, to differentiate and create sustainable value.

Consciously staged experiences have substantial economic value.    Cirque du Soleil ticket: CHF 126.-   Zirkus Knie ticket: CHF 26.-

#3 disrupt.

How to refresh your innovation power by using  a modern set of methods like Design Thinking and Lean Startup - to leave traces.

Disruptive success requires a broad acceptance by the target audience.   Dropbox takes off only after a critical number of human beings are willing to store their data in the cloud.

The Maze (Labyrinth) as Key Visual   Your company can only develop its innovation capability if your employees can develop. That only happens in a fruitful, fostering environment. Which is the result of modern leadership. Like in the maze game: you cannot directly intervene, but only use the handles on the sides.  To be successful in real life, it's like playing with the iron ball. You'll need a combination of playfulness, precision and commitment - and serious experimentation.
