Profile

Summary

Innovation management and strategic marketing consultant supporting companies from ideation to launch. I have taken a couple of products through the innovation lifecycle and bring real-life experience to my clients. I help companies innovate, build and commercialize products that customers want. It is my customer-focused approach to innovation that sets me apart. As the market space changes and customer needs are evolving, I recognize that we have to approach innovation in a lean and agile fashion. In order to facilitate this, I engage early and often with customers to reduce ambiguity and gain insights to develop products that address real customer needs.To accomplish this I use innovation tools like Design Thinking, Business Model Canvas, Lean Canvas and Jobs-to-be-done framework to help companies build products that are aligned with customer needs. I also offer workshops on Design Thinking, Business Model Development, Value Proposition Development, Lean Innovation and Project Management. Based on my experience in innovation, consulting, project management and research, I have developed tools and methods that can streamline innovation through structured creativity.
