Poorly defined problems, a lack of internal expertise, a lack of suitable personnel within the innovation process, poor data quality or even irreconcilable cultural differences between the company and the startup... the list of reasons goes on and on.
Aware of these obstacles and barriers, IoT Valley appoints an innovation project manager who acts as a trusted third-party go-between for the partner and the startup, with a view to facilitating collaboration, accelerating and safeguarding each stage of the project. The process maximises the likelihood of success and facilitates the transition from business problem to the deployment of the startup solution, within less than a year.
The IoT Valley teams monitored every production step in order to uncover the problems encountered by the technicians, and proposed small-scale innovative solutions on a limited budget
