About the Topic: To successfully develop Digital Innovation, firms need to transform their business towards a more agile, flexible and collaborative organism. This also has implications on its processes and ways of measuring and steering these efforts. While still providing transparency on projects and their efficiency and effectiveness in terms of resource investment, accounting frameworks also need to be flexible to respond to the changing needs that the fuzziness of digital innovation projects requires. Especially in the early, exploratory phases of innovation, monitoring seems to be difficult, as projects navigate through an area of high uncertainty. However, it is precisely this uncertainty that underlines the need for a control cockpit that enables companies to better manage this process.
About us: The Chair for Design Thinking and Innovation Research aims to drive human-centered digital innovation along different areas. As part of the Hasso Plattner Institute, we aim to drive digital transformation and deliver technical innovations that address relevant challenges in business and society. Headed by Prof. Dr. Falk Uebernickel a small team of curious researchers investigates this process from different perspectives and aims to better understand how we can achieve this mission.
