Forde, June 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – EarlyBirds, an Australian firm that has established an open ecosystem that allows innovators, early adopters, and subject matter experts (SMEs) to come together and work together to speed up technology advancement and adoption in an organization, wants to inform everyone that they can help companies move from just innovation theater to authentic innovation. Organizations are facing continuous disruption and they’re realizing that their current strategy and organizational structures are not nimble enough to gain access and mobilize the innovative talent and technology that they require to meet various challenges.
Kris Poria, co-founder and CEO of EarlyBirds, says, “If you are an early adopter organization and you understand the value of innovation, you can work with EarlyBirds to seize opportunities and solve challenges using actionable innovation from innovators, who are startups, scaleups or mature organizations. “
Innovation theater is any initiative taken by a company that makes use of an innovation, but it doesn’t really have any impact on the business. This is usually due to lack of focus that can stir the innovation team into the wrong direction. This typically happens in organizations that try to rush innovation with occasional initiatives. While no organization deliberately sets out to create an innovation theater, many still end up doing it although they frequently don’t realize it.
A competitive environment is what motivates companies and government agencies to have new forms or organization that can quickly respond to the continuous disruption that they are facing. Oftentimes One of the first initiative that organizations undertake is to hire management consultants who reorganize the company into a matrix organization where teams report to several leaders. Unfortunately, this usually results in an organizational theater where everyone gets busy with the reorganization for a year but ultimately, there is no real innovation that impacts their product or service. Organizations may also try to accomplish innovation activities, such as innovation workshops, hackathons, design thinking classes, and more, but the result is just innovation theater. And finally, organizations may focus on the processes and metrics and try to make some reforms but the result may just be process theater.
Authentic innovation creates value, either by optimizing the current business or developing new revenue sources and profits. To achieve this, the leaders must provide clear guidance on strategy and what innovation projects to focus on. EarlyBirds can be the most suitable partner for organizations to avoid innovation theater. This is because they can help organizations achieve “actionable innovation,” through an open innovation system where organizations come into contact with SMEs and innovators. Meanwhile, Kris Poria says, “If you are an innovator, we can help you engage with early adopter customers and their partners to adopt your products and solutions. Thus, the EarlyBirds open innovation system is beneficial for both organizations wanting to adopt technological innovations to improve their products or services, and also those startups, scaleups and mature companies offering innovative products and solutions. “
The EarlyBirds open innovation ecosystem has two major parts – its award winning platform with over 4 million Innovators and two programs. One is the Explorer program that is designed to accelerate the technological innovation process for the entire organization as a service. The Explorer program has a number of key features, including: weekly webinars to help stimulate innovation in the organization; quarterly and monthly innovation days; a nominated SME for the business; a platform enterprise license; and a focus on specific types of innovations. The others the Challenger program, which is for those businesses that prefer to work on one particular challenge at a time. EarlyBirds also offers the Edzility framework that can help businesses with their continuous improvement strategy with the ultimate goal of having an improved organizational agility and competitive edge.
The Explorer program is the most suitable choice for addressing all of the previously mentioned needs when it comes to new technology with options to take part in Challenger Programs, undertake innovations days and come up with innovation maps based on technical sectors or business themes that are relevant for an industry. And the Challenger Program is used to solve one particular business or technical problem in a few weeks.
