Innovation: return to reality



Consumers and designers praise "the real thing". What about marketeers and research people?

Here is a summary of the article written by Richard Bordenave (In Vivo BVA) and Michel Ten Donkelaar (Kraft Foods)

Facing the tough reality of the FMCG sector’s innovation failure rate, IN VIVO BVA and Kraft are now challenging current NPD process practices, highlighting the blind spots of the standard research sequence through the usual “gates”, which paradoxically results in costly redesign and longer time to market.

These case studies illustrate howere-connecting research with “consumer reality” at a very early stage with “touch and feel” stimuli (prototypes), tested in a natural environment (mock-up stores or kitchen), instead of using virtual ideas or concepts, can help solve the paradox of early testing of “the real thing” in a “real context” with “real consumers" with a product that does not yet exist, and how at Kraft these methodological solutions have made a difference in delivering improved designs, faster and with higher success rates.
