EarlyBirds Platform Promotes Cost Efficiency Innovation
Australia based EarlyBirds is helping organisations improve how cost efficiently they can solve business challenges with actionable innovation using their open ecosystem platform and services. The platform was launched in September 2019 with the purpose of facilitating collaboration between Early Adopter organisations with business challenges and Innovators who can provide disruptive solutions for these challenges. The platform now boasts more than 1.3 million innovators with solutions and a range of service options to solve Early Adopter business challenges.
In a typical business environment, an organisation may wish to develop a solution that will help them overcome a business challenge. However, the vast majority of organisations have finite resources to allocate to this type of problem-solving, and some challenges may even prove to be completely outside their area of expertise. Rather than see a project or an opportunity stagnate, EarlyBirds work with their customers to take a more proactive approach to solving strategic and operational business challenges.
EarlyBirds offers self-service and assisted programs for organisations needing to augment innovation programs or to resolve specific business challenges with actionable innovation. The EarlyBirds open ecosystem platform holds a global big data pool of innovators that can be searched by key industries, emerging themes, solution keywords, location of the innovator and organisational maturity. There is an Innovation Project functionality that provides an ability to record a business challenge statement, engage and collaborate with stakeholders, search, store, manage and curate relevant candidate Innovators to solve business challenges.
The EarlyBirds SME led assisted programs are developed for organisations needing to supplement internal capabilities or to provide dedicated resources for innovation initiatives. The Challenger program is designed to solve a defined business challenge, in a short period of time, using interlinked phases. Whilst the Explorer program addresses enterprise innovation needs and supplements internal teams. It provides a range of options including industry specific innovation maps and blueprints, innovation days plus the option to conduct multiple Challenger programs and learning engagements with innovators.
The ultimate result of this synergized workflow is that a business can almost be guaranteed to have a number of functional solutions prepared for them by Innovators and SME’s far more capable of contributing to development without being bogged down by the same costs and resource constraints. In an open ecosystem of Innovators, for example, each can judge for themselves through a curation process as to whether an Innovators’ existing capabilities can be used to provide the solution the business requires. While it is not unheard of for Innovators to commit new resources to development, this too can be done competitively or through collaboration. This approach could ultimately produce a disruptive solution that the business will likely be able to implement with fewer resources than if they attempted to develop a bespoke alternative by themselves.
