ALL COMPANIES STRUGGLE WITH INNOVATION

Nevertheless, great innovations are created anyway.
How do they succeed?

What does the path to true innovation look like? You often feel like you keep hitting a wall. You’re frustrated. Every hurdle you’ve cleared so far seems like pure luck and your road is plastered with stop signs.

When you just start creating something bigger than you, the true pain of an innovator kicks in. What actually stops you from bringing your innovation to market?

SYMPTOM 1

YOUR COMPANY’S PROJECTS TAKE AN ETERNITY.

Has your company ever finished an innovation project within the scheduled time? How come most of your company's projects take years without any real tangible output?

You gave everything you got and tried to speed up the process, but for some reason, it just wouldn’t work.

SYMPTOM 2

YOU JUST WON’T GET THE RESULTS YOU WANT.

Your innovation budget melts away – and even worse, tangible results are missing. The desired solution simply does not come to life. But why?
You have good ideas, all the creative techniques you need and a good team – but somehow you are stuck while developing your product without the results you are urgently waiting for? What could be missing?

SYMPTOM 3

YOUR COMPANY’S FAILURE RATE IS higher than you think it should be

You’ve tried to go for bigger, better products, better innovation processes, but that is easier said than done.

Over 90% of all products fail when launched on the market. How do you feel about that?

SYMPTOM 4

your frustration level is at an all time high

You have tried everything, given everything. However, you have noticed how your own frustration level keeps rising.

SYMPTOM 5

YOU CAN’T BUILD THE RIGHT TEAM.

Finding and keeping the right employees is exhausting. Maybe you've met candidates who don’t meet your expectations because at work they are so different from the impression you gained of them before.

You know there are team players out there who are talented, have a huge interest in your company, and a mission that is identical to yours. But you just can't seem or know how to find the right people.

I’VE BEEN RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE

Any innovator’s pitfalls out there? I've fallen into all of them.

From not being heard despite having great innovation ideas, to resistant colleagues and completely bloated company structures. From struggling to finally hire a great team to laying off half my staff. I've been there and gone through all that. Being an innovator myself, I’ve felt your pain, too.

Facing all these challenges, I've learned the hard way what doesn't work. But thanks to what I have experienced myself, I can prevent all that from happening to you.

And in addition to showing you all the things that don't work, I can show you what does work by sharing my knowledge with you.

15+ years of experience in the innovation development business.

Together with my team I`ve worked with 7 out of 9 of the most innovative German companies worldwide!

“FROM IDEA TO PRODUCT IN A WEEK.
REALLY?”

You bet. Instead of playing the endless "I believe, you believe" game, we develop tangible prototypes and go to market straight away.

But it's not easy. You'll need a bulletproof process called Innoweek®. Our goal is to find out in the fastest possible way if a new product works. We stop the guessing game!

Groundbreaking innovative products and services are no longer out of reach. You thought only a genius could develop, launch and validate a product within such a short time? Nope. Our Innovators’ Bootcamp will enable you and your team to do the same.

With 15 years of experience in innovation and a long list of customers including well-known DAX companies, I can tell you it doesn’t take more than a week to get real innovation.

01

DO MORE IN LESS TIME.

You want to learn how to develop tangible products within the shortest possible time? We are going to show you the system behind it as well as all the tricks of the trade. A process that we have continuously been improving over the years.

02

DON’T LET OTHERS GET AHEAD OF YOU.

Have you ever felt the pain of the latecomer or the one who loses a deal just because you lacked the courage of a competitor who just did it?

There's nothing more painful, more soul-crushing than having a great innovation idea, only to watch the competition going to market with it before you.

So why let others win the race if your success can be just one week away?

03

REDUCE YOUR PROJECT COSTS RIGHT AWAY.

Innovation budgets are always tight. If you don’t keep an eye on your project costs, your idea will never become a hit. One-week-only-based innovation development, as opposed to the classical project management approach, is what will make all the difference in creating your successful innovation. While delivering weekly tangible results, your reputation will improve with each passing month, and you can scale yourself as well.

04

DO GREAT WORK.

Great ideas need execution. The quality of your work, your ability to meet deadlines, and your level of communication – they all impact your relationship with stakeholders from the start of the project all the way to the end. Make sure you and your team have the processes needed in place to align components and keep them on track.

BENEFIT FROM OUR EXPERIENCE

Nearly two decades in the industry, plus proven processes, templates and mindset tips.

You can overcome these hurdles all by yourself, but our experience is here and available for you. We want you to learn from our mistakes so that you won't lose your motivation or miss a unique opportunity to grow. Whatever path you take – it won’t be easy. But we've put every red flag, warning sign and how-to in this entire program.

That's what makes Innovators’ Bootcamp different from any other program out there. We have actually been there, done that.

Granny&Smith always understood, delivered, questioned status quo, presented straightforward, bulls-eye answers and solutions.

Dr. Markus Witte

In sprint Granny&Smith helps to make our ideas into something visible and tangible. Creativity paired with a structured way of working, inexhaustible know-how and a cordial manner let me look forward to common work appointments with joy. This makes work fun! Granny&Smith are much more than just consultants - they are like a rock by our side.

Nadja Kahn

We contracted a sprint with Lars to get an online configurator mockup and click model. The result exceeded our expectations. We further received a lot of valuable food for thought and insights. We will surely work with Lars again!

IT’S NOT ABOUT JUST BUYING THIS COURSE.

The Innovator’s Bootcamp needs more than money as an investment. Getting insights into real innovation, learning proven strategies and methods, require your full commitment.

I’m not going to show you shortcuts to success because they don’t exist. What I can promise though is that your investment in the Innovators’ Bootcamp will help you save time, money, and reduce your workload. Being where I am now took me decades of learning innovation the hard way – a fact that will prevent you from making the same mistakes yourself.

I can’t do the work for you, but I can support you and catch you when you fall. If you want your ideas to successfully make it to market, this course will help empower you to achieve that.
