Innovative Product Launch and services: 5 mistakes to avoid
Design and develop your innovative products and services through the steps of our agile innovation methodology
Avoid disruption with the launch of new and innovative products
With globalization and digitalization, the pace of innovation has accelerated as consumer trends and needs have changed. To cope with these changes, large companies need to adapt faster to stay at the forefront of their customers’ needs or risk being replaced by more up-to-date competitors: in the United States, the average age of the Companies in the S.P. 500 is 20 years and continues to decline.
In order not to experience the same disappearances, European companies must be able to innovate and transform themselves at the same time as the market evolves. To do this, the pace of new products and services must accelerate. But how can we launch innovative products and services faster and without increasing the risk of failure?
Schoolab, an innovation studio to launch new products
Schoolab supports their customers in the launch of innovative products and services that will meet the new uses and needs of the market. Halfway between a project incubator, a consulting firm and an agency, Schoolab brings together in its support all the skills and methodologies necessary to launch its product or service quickly by controlling its costs.
Innovative Product Launch : How do I launch new products?
In an Open Innovation approach, Schoolab will put together a dedicated project team that will work in collaboration with the company to launch a new product or an innovative service. Schoolab will also identify players from its innovation ecosystem who will bring their expertise and resources to the project: startups, agencies, etc. The Design Thinking methodology allows project teams to understand the evolution of market needs in order to design a product or service that guarantees the best user experience while taking into account the technical and economic constraints of the company. Applying a Lean Startup methodology, the team will launch the innovative product or service very early and on a limited scope, to get immediate market feedback and start to gain traction. These experiments are supported by marketing and growth hacking campaigns to optimize customer acquisition by making the best use of project resources.
Mistakes to avoid when launching products
Many projects fail because the teams have spent too much time looking for the perfect innovative product or service without daring to launch it on the market. By the time the product or service passes all internal validations, the market has already evolved and customer needs are no longer the same.
For example, one of our client companies had already carried out three successive market studies on the concept of food delivery at home. Each time, the study’s conclusions were different because the usages had evolved and the market was getting structured. We convinced them to launch a pilot on the market in less than 2 months on a very limited perimeter in order to quickly gain skills and acquire much stronger convictions on the topic.
Benchmark: Schoolab customer cases of product launch
With the same company, we first spent 3 weeks studying the needs of our target and the technical constraints of the subject. We were then able to design a customer experience that was fluid and adapted to the uses of our target. In order to achieve the pilot quickly, we relied on the logistics services already in place in the company and on the other on a French food delivery startup that made available its payment interface. and its delivery drivers to allow us to deploy the service in a matter of weeks. For 3 months, we had our hands free to test with the company several modalities and several business models.
At the end of the pilot, we had all the data and learning to adjust the service before the large-scale move to the French market.
