USE INNOVATION TO

GROW YOUR BUSINESS

AND REVENUE!

Only innovations can help companies increase their revenue quickly, unlike other( people) strategies that exercise six sigma, product quality enhancements, or supply chain re-engineering.

- Suresh Pillai

Caretaker Profile

Hello I'm

SURESHBABU

Also known as

S C Pillai | Surie | Suresh Pillai

I am a serial founder, scientist, researcher, inventor, innovator, and head-worker skilled at rapidly innovating products suitable for the marketplace. Adept at multitasking, I am a great mediator, leader, administrator, and a fluent communicator.

WHAT DO I INNOVATE?

Incremental and radical (DEFENSIVE/DISRUPTIVE/OPEN/SWARM), feature-rich, cost-effective, schedule-driven, multidisciplinary, and quality-enhancing value innovations.

If it makes a positive impact, I do it!

INCREMENTAL INNOVATIONS

This innovation strategy revolves around small improvements or upgrades made to a company's existing products, processes, services, and business models.

RADICAL INNOVATIONS

This innovation is about unprecedented improvements or breakthrough/disruptive/game-changing products, processes, services, and business models.

WHAT DO I INNOVATE?

I innovate using my knowledge, tools, skills, and common sense via proprietary 'SIM' system(SIM processes, SIM team, SIM Technology, and SIM closed-loop workflow).

SIM (SURIE INNOVATION MANAGEMENT) PROCESSES

Start

(FROM innovation requirement THROUGH brainstorming TO project charter)

THE entire SIM team, directed by INNOVATION FACILITATORS, participates in scripting a PROJECT CHARTER/PLAN/PROPOSAL after they thoroughly understand the client's innovation requirement. On the client's buy-in & approvals, the project/product innovation starts.

Prototype

(FROM project management THROUGH the skill TO prototype)

INNOVATION ENGINEERS and interdisciplinary remote staff composed of engineers, technicians, interns, and apprentices take up assigned tasks and produce a working prototype/MVP.

Allocate

(FROM project charter THROUGH PM tools TO project management )

With Agreements/Contracts/Approvals in hand, the INNO- VATION MANAGERS choose and prioritize various elements keeping the client's innovation requirements in mind. Innovation Managers execute the project by implementing powerful PM tools, organize scientific resource allocation, and host a client-portal for stakeholders to monitor the progress in real-time.

Refine

(FROM prototype THROUGH the strategy TO functional prototype)

This activity is a continual task for the INNOVATION STRATEGISTS, INNOVATION OFFICERS, initial product inventors, and design providers who examine the real plan’s progress and innovation stages and make necessary strategic adjustments to create a functional prototype.

Handover

(FROM functional prototype THROUGH client buy-in TO handover)

Once the innovation is complete, INNOVATION FACILITATORS conduct evalua- tions before handing over the project to the client. By handing over, the project's impact and further opportunities are determined.
