Busk Innovation Model.png

From idea to product

Cooperating with Busk Innovation shall be a safe experience which is why I typically divide the process into project phases where results are evaluated before taking decision on the next step of the project. A structured approach is essential to ensure good results and clear outlines of the process. My starting point is a model with 4 phases, but if your company already has a working development model (Stage gate or alike) I am happy to follow this.
