Many people believe that only brilliant people are creative. However, research shows that this is not the case. Intelligence and creativity are no longer related once you get beyond an I.Q. of about 120; this means that even if you are not as bright as most people, you still have the potential to be very creative. So why are some people more creative than others?

One reason is that some people are more open to new experiences and new ideas. They are always looking for new ways to do things, and they are not afraid of change. These people are often called “innovators”.

Innovolo is a company that helps innovators bring their ideas to life. They provide product development as a service. In addition, they offer R&D teams and business owners extra capacity, capability, and momentum in their product development projects.

The benefits of using Innovolo

There are many benefits of using Innovolo for product development. Here are just a few:

  1. Extra Capacity and Capability: Innovolo has a team of experienced engineers who can help you with your project. They have the expertise and knowledge to help you get your product to market quickly and efficiently.
  2. Momentum: When you work with Innovolo, you get the speed of a team of experienced engineers behind you; this can be very helpful when trying to meet deadlines or overcome obstacles.
  3. Cost-effective: Innovolo is a cost-effective option for product development. They offer competitive rates, and they can get your product to market quickly and efficiently.

What this means in practice

Challenge #1: Capacity

R&D teams can often find themselves facing capacity issues. This happens when the team cannot take on any more work due to a lack of resources. As a result, the unit can often become bottlenecked, and projects can be delayed.

By extension, businesses find themselves missing out on opportunities when their products are not brought to market as quickly as possible. In some cases, companies can even go out of business due to a lack of new products.

Sometimes, the lack of headspace prevents teams from taking on more work. Other times, it lacks resources, such as laboratory space, equipment, or staff.

And sometimes, the deadlines are not fixed because priorities keep getting changed. Again, working with an external provider such as Innovolo can help in these cases.

Challenge #2: Capabilities

Another challenge that R&D teams can face is a lack of capabilities; this can often be due to a lack of specific skills or knowledge within the team for one particular project. When this happens, the team can often spend a lot of time learning new skills or finding someone who can help them with the project.

This can be very time-consuming, and it can often delay the project. It can also lead to frustration within the team, as they may feel like they cannot do their job correctly.

Skills shortage is an issue faced by many industries, not just R&D. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find people with the right skills, and this will only become more of a problem in the future.

Getting started on a project can also be a challenge for some teams. This is often because they don’t have the proper knowledge or know where to start.

In these cases, working with an external provider can be a huge help. They can provide the team with the knowledge and guidance they need to get started on the project. And by extension, this can save the team a lot of time and frustration.

Challenge #3: Momentum

Momentum is an essential factor in any project. When a team has momentum, they can work more efficiently and overcome obstacles more easily. This is because they are focused and have a sense of purpose.

When a team lacks momentum, they can often find themselves bogged down by distractions and problems that they cannot overcome. Unfortunately, this can often lead to a team becoming stuck and not making any progress.

A team may need more help to get over the hump in some cases; this could be in the form of additional resources, or it could be in the form of guidance from an external provider.

And finally, one of the biggest challenges that teams face is when they are not working together effectively; this can often lead to a lack of progress and team members becoming frustrated.

When this happens, it is often helpful to bring in an external provider to help get the team back on track. They can help improve communication within the team, and they can help get the team working together again.

Challenge #4: Accountability

In some cases, teams may lack accountability; this can often be due to a lack of leadership or focus within the group. When this happens, team members can often become less motivated, and they may not feel like they are working towards a common goal.

The exciting part of this is that it is not just the lower ranks within the team who can lack accountability. Often the senior positions can also lack accountability. So we have been providing C-suite level support for clients, and it has been a great experience.

Holding Boards accountable for their innovation initiatives and commitments is critical to success. It is also vital for Boards to hold management responsible for executing the innovation plan, from idea generation through delivery.

When a team lacks accountability, it can be not easy to get things done and make progress. This is because no one is responsible for the outcome of the project.

In some cases, an external provider can help to improve accountability within the team. They can do this by setting expectations and holding team members accountable for meeting those expectations.


There are many other challenges that R&D teams can face. Still, working with an external provider such as Innovolo can often overcome these challenges more easily.
