Defining Rapid-Cycle Innovation
The technology to automate processes and eliminate manual steps exist, but companies often overlook smaller business-level processes when implementing these technologies as part of their digital transformation. For many businesses, even after a grand-scale digital transformation, many day-to-day workflows and processes still rely on outdated systems and cost-inefficient manual labor.
We know that rapid-cycle innovation, when utilized in conjunction with enterprise-oriented efforts, has the ability to address these shortfalls in company’s digital transformation strategy — the question remaining is how.
Rapid-cycle innovation differs from your other digital transformation efforts in one essential aspect: it can happen with minimal burden on IT. Instead, it relies on a resource that your company probably didn’t even realize it had – business professionals turned citizen developers.
Rapid cycle innovation with citizen development empowers business professionals outside of IT to propose and create new applications that modernize existing workflows and processes.
