Make Your Own Luck: How Open Innovation can Revolutionise your Product Incubator

Product Innovation often feels like a game of snakes and ladders – you take five steps forward, just to slide two steps back when something in your prototype reveals a hidden customer preference or challenge. Unlike the board game though, you don’t have to rely on luck in product development.

With a few core principles from the world of design thinking, a flexible prototyping capability, and a systematic way to track the maturity of your product ideas, you can dramatically increase your success rate. Join me for a talk on how we applied these tools to build nbn’s product incubator, and used it to explore the role of the nbn in the Internet of Things.
