What is Innovation?

Innovation

The definition of Innovation on Dragon1 in short is: "Fundamental Redesign". This means the current way of doing 'things' is completely changed by the innovation.

An example of innovation was the usage of a car to travel a great distance, or the usage of a phone to talk with each other over a great distance. The car and the phone fundamentally changed the way of traveling and communications.

Concept Design

At the heart of innovation sits concept design. Therefore Dragon1 Innovation Lab in its essence is a concept design tool.

At four levels of abstraction you can design, model, visualize and publish/share any concept you can think of.

Conceptual Modeling or Conceptualization helps you to analyze or redesign a solution in an abstract way apart from its implementation later on.

This helps to focus first on the functions and later on the technology, without running into practical limitations too soon.

For instance: humans cannot fly, and paper wings will not work, but a human operating wings in an abstract way can 'fly'. So now you can focus on wings that create enough uplift with only the human power as input.

The visual designer and architecture repository are the two main tools on Dragon1 you will use to create meta models, models, views and visualizations, new entities, new shapes and libraries. Everything you need for concept design.

You can create different versions of your concept and play various situations for your concepts (and watch their principles: the way it works).

Common Issues in Innovation

Any organization busy with innovation, encounters the following challenges:

  • How to innovate? (when everyone is busy doing their work)
  • Why spend money on innovation? (when we don't know if we will earn it back)
  • What to innovate? What is wise or not wise to do? What do our competitors innovate?

To all these questions we will give an answer here on Dragon1.

Why Should you Innovate

Companies often innovate their products and services so they can solve problems, concerns and issues that people have. People want things to be better, cheaper and more sustainable and they have lots of other things they want.

So if you as business professional find or encounter 'problems' that people have in doing 'things', you could design an innovation for it on Dragon1.
