Abstract Title: How to bring Mobility to the next level
Purpose: The purpose of this report was to analyse the current innovation maturation of the Mobility division in Siemens A/S, and give recommendations on how to improve innovation in this division. Furthermore, the purpose was to assess the requirements for an IT-platform that would be able to collect and mature innovation ideas.
Methodology: A questionnaire was used to analyze the current innovation maturation state of Mobility. In addition, secondary data was used as primary source in the recommendations on how to improve innovation in the Mobility division.
Findings: The analysis revealed that the Mobility division was a level one organization, the lowest level, and in order to mature to level two, it was recommended that the division should create an innovation strategy, ownership of innovation, measuring metrics, formalized innovation process, a better innovation climate, and allocate dedicated resources to innovation. In addition, it was suggested that the formalized innovation process could be supported by an IT-platform.
