New Product & Service DevelopmentSolve Unmet Customer Needs through Innovation
Our Proven Process
The 7-Step Innovation Process
for New Product & Service Development
Kuczmarski Innovation employs a proven approach to developing breakthrough new products and services that solve real market problems with innovative new solutions.
How the Process Works
Discover Unmet Problems and Opportunities
Our process begins by forming a cross-functional innovation team with your organization and conducting ethnographic research with customers and/or consumers. Our proprietary techniques get to the deeply rooted causes of customer problems and that allow us to create more comprehensive, irreplaceable solutions.
Generate Disruptive Solutions
The KI team leverages market insights from primary research in tandem with custom-built exercises to spark creative problem solving as the basis for solution generation. This approach helps create new product and service concepts that are more closely tied to customer needs and lowers the overall risk of new-to-the-company innovation.
Test Concepts and Build Business Briefs
Once new concepts are screened and developed, the KI team conducts additional customer/end-user testing to refine, optimize, and shape new products and services. We leverage these insights to fine-tune concepts and estimate potential revenue opportunities and barriers to entry for new concepts.
Create a Balanced Portfolio
We don’t just help you create one new solution; our process develops a diverse portfolio of new product and/or service opportunities that include closer-in and more disruptive innovations at varying degrees of revenue generating potential (i.e. single, double, triple, and home run opportunities). Our approach delivers market-tested concepts that are ready for prototype development so you have a clear path to meeting your innovation growth goals.
Innovative, revenue-generating products and services that will shape the future.
