An Introduction to CDI: Aerospace

How are organizations in the Aerospace industry using external crowdsourcing networks to drive innovation success rates?

In this eBook we posit a framework of ‘Challenge Driven Innovation’ in lieu of the traditional innovation approach of stage-gate management. This new framework is designed to subdivide projects into modules, not stages—modules, or ‘Challenges’, that are more amenable to sharing within a network of resources and among a variety of innovation approaches.

Why Challenge Driven Innovation?

Inside, you’ll find:

  • How accessing external talent and ideas can present solutions in as little as 30 days
  • How our “7 stages of Challenge Driven Innovation” reduces innovation costs and risks, and times to market
  • The 4 major steps of open innovation Challenges we create and present to our global innovation community of over 500,000 problem solvers
  • How NASA and others have succeeded using our Challenge Driven Innovation methodology

Who Should Read This eBook?

If you’re a senior leader with managerial oversight or influence over your organization’s innovation initiatives or R&D function, this guide will provide you with fresh, new ideas and methods for tackling complex business problems and innovation challenges.

The winning submission was very thorough. It addresses the Challenge requirements and exceeds them with respect to forecast confidence and random prediction. Questions posed back to the Solver were thoroughly addressed.
