Innovation Models

GInI has developed an incredibly powerful suite of strategic innovation models and frameworks. GInI uses these as center points of its body of knowledge, and thus as core elements of its certification and training program.

These models and frameworks were designed to complement one another, making for a comprehensive overall innovation framework. Used together, they allow for the creation of a broad environment for growth and innovation. For example, GInI’s tools for defining new value – GInI Business Model Innovation Framework , GInI Business Model Canvas, and GInI Customer Experience Journey Map – can all be used within the broader enterprise innovation environment defined by the GInI Enterprise Innovation Architecture, which is itself augmented by use of the GInI Innovation Management System. Likewise, this enterprise-wide innovation environment is optimally nurtured when operating inside an innovation culture established by the GInI Experiential Human Innovation Framework. Finally, all of these are most effectively leveraged when used to pursue a well-defined growth and innovation strategy, as reflected in the GInI Strategic Innovation Compass and Strategic Innovation Roadmap. Used together, this suite of models and frameworks provides a comprehensive operational system that addresses nearly every aspect of innovation-driven growth.

At the same time, GInI recognizes that the exact model of growth and innovation that best fits any one organization will always be some customized adaptation of these. Thus, we suggest that one not approach these models and frameworks as overly rigid, but rather as useful constructs around which to have a meaningful conversation about their organization’s growth and innovation needs.
