After all your great work on your project, you can multiply the benefits through the Innovation Transfer Opportunities.

Ready to create your Innovation Transfer Opportunities and start improving?

Consider how others could benefit from your work now that you’ve made significant improvements. The process you’ve just improved may be the only one of its kind in your organization, but chances are other processes might be somewhat similar and could benefit from what you’ve done.

Even if there are no similar processes, there may be places in your organization that share some of the problems you’ve addressed.

Finally, perhaps some of your solutions would work well elsewhere, so think about how you can make your work have an even more significant difference.

Some things to consider:

  • What are other processes in your organization similar to yours? Can they benefit from what you’ve discovered and implemented?

  • Do the Root Causes you identified exist elsewhere in your organization? Do they create problems there as well?

  • Would any of your solutions (or parts) benefit other parts of your organization?

  • If your project is localized, would it be helpful to replicate your project (or solutions) more broadly through the organization?

  • You can copy some elements elsewhere, even if the entire solution may not apply.

  • Sometimes, a Transfer Opportunity can be a simple copy of what you’ve done, but there may need to be some modification.

  • Others may merit an advanced project to adapt the solution to the specifics of the new location.

How do I create Innovation Transfer Opportunities?

With these in mind, identify one or more places where your work could be applied elsewhere, then identify the specific aspects of your project that might be useful in other parts of your organization, either directly or with some modification.

The Process section identifies the process and the specific aspect changed.

The Process Benefits section identifies the results of the change.

The Area/Department/Business Unit identifies where the changes would likely help the organization. Don’t leave a location out because you aren’t sure—when in doubt, list it!
