Developing more systematic innovation and strategy processes


Customer: Sandvik Mining and Construction Oy (SMC)


Developing a systematic innovation management process and a more proactive technology strategy process.


VTT mapped the strengths and weaknesses of SMC's innovation process, and a series of well-focused development activities were conducted based on the results. The new technology strategy process was developed as a cross-functional activity.

  • VTT's expertise helped to start the process of bringing SMC's innovation management culture into a totally new systematic level.
  • New tools and methods were developed especially for the front-end of the innovation process.
  • VTT helped to create and pilot a new technology strategy process which enables agile and sustainable strategic decisions.
