Innop: a process for innovative projects

Principle of the approach

Innop is a phased approach, adapted to innovative or highly uncertain projects.
It goes without saying that such projects cannot adopt classical approaches, even iterative ones. They require an approach which takes into consideration, from the outset, this high-risk situation.
The logic used in the design of the Innop phases is one of progressive reduction of uncertainty. The figure below outlines the principle.

Phase after phase, uncertainty is reduced. Commitment is determined progressively:

  1. Decide on the rallying idea: “Initiation” phase
  2. Give yourself time to be inventive: “Exploration” and “Crystallization?” phases
  3. Finally, commit yourself to clarified requirements: “Specification” phase

It then becomes possible to continue with a more industrial course, once uncertainty has diminished. The following phase enables, therefore, a rigorous specification of the work to be done, carried out in the “Implementation” phase. The cycle does allow for adjustments to be made in the long term: this is the purpose of the “Consolidation” phase.
As this type of project almost always includes an element of cultural change and, in all cases, a specific involvement of the actors, the “Dissemination” phase provides a time for communication and valorization of the results obtained.


The “Innovation” approach

  • Take the context into consideration
    • Progressive reduction of uncertainty
  • Phased approach built on the logic of action
    • Rather than that of the product.
