    DEFINE AN INNOVATION POSTURE
    • The core processes that
    businesses follow today
    were built in a world
    before mobile technology:
    • Always on, always
    connected, ‘unlimited power
    & connectivity’, GPS,
    camera, etc.
    • Enterprise Mobile is a new
    way of thinking. It’s a new
    way of creating change.

    DEFINE A MOBILE APP
    ROADMAP

    Identify hotspots through ideation
    and ‘art of the possible’ sessions

    Align ideas to business drivers,
    organizational readiness, and
    ease of implementation

    Rank app candidates by overall
    viability score

    Choose a top app candidate for
    rapid prototyping

    START WITH A DAY IN THE LIFE
    What is it? Basically stalking.
    Follow potential app users (employees, partners, etc.)
    around as they complete their daily tasks.
    A few examples:
    • Accompany drivers on a delivery route
    • Shadow sales people as they visit prospects
    and customers
    • Work in a retail store, stocking, auditing & answering
    customer questions
    • Visit oil fields with lease operators and technicians

    • Possesses High-Readiness in process, data, and implementation
    • Makes the scenario “real”

    BEGIN WITH
    THE END IN MIND
    • Build the prototype in no more than
    two weeks and distribute to end users.
    • Semi-functional prototypes give users
    a feel for actual navigation and
    interaction.
    • Gather feedback from key
    constituents, discover gaps and adjust
    before you start development.
