HARVARD BUSINESS PUBLISHING

DIGITAL INNOVATION LAB

Overview

We developed an innovation lab for experimenting with technology platforms to explore new products and services in online learning for improvement in business education. This CEO-level initiative involved the following:

Market Opportunities: Analyzed trends, customer needs, and business competencies to show how future offerings must be designed to create new markets and tailor to their needs.

Canvasing Technologies: Identified emerging digital technologies to make forays into new markets including digital case studies, business simulation games, and virtual collaboration tools.

C-Suite Level Collaboration: Our work involved collaborating with executive-level leadership at technology platform companies for implementing a vendor evaluation, selection, and rollout process.

Rapid Prototyping: Created a “virtual sandbox” for prototyping solutions consisting of tools and templates for intaking, deploying, and evaluating emerging technologies.

Impact

Greater market agility through a process of innovation consisting of technologies, curated experiments and timelines to keep a pulse on market trends and enable HBP to respond quickly to new opportunities.
