Qi is a process that covers the phase between an idea for a new product or business and the start of a project. This process includes methodology to
✓evaluate the maturity of ideas (Qi module CHECK IN),
✓massage and mature ideas to strong concepts (Qi module WORK OUT), and
✓make sound investment decisions for new product development projects (Qi module STOP or GO)
The process is supported by an App that provides tools, knowledge and guidance to get the early innovation phase right.
At the moment, the Qi module STOP or GO is available. This module supports decision makers to come to strong, sustainable decisions to initiate a project or kill the idea. It is also useful for investment decisions later in a Stage-Gate® innovation process as it enables "gates with teeth".
The full process will be available later in 2021. If you are interested in receiving updates on the further development of Qi - Qualify your innovation, please subscribe our newsletter.
