Our spectrum reaches from holistic approaches to innovation management to consulting on technology management, to business and organization development.

Your Challenges

The transfer of innovations into products and processes needs considerable experience. We support you on the topics:

  • Harmonisation with business strategy and planning in order to obtain the support from your top management
  • Adequate organizational design of the innovation management
  • Efficient innovation process
  • Processes to achieve the required technology maturity
  • Efficient transfer processes into product and process development and into other transfer channels if needed

Our Solution Methods

SRITec is a network of technology experts, business developers and financial experts in the legal structure of an association.

Besides a holistic analysis of the innovation processes as well as individually designed solutions we also provide on request consulting on efficient technology management and strategic business planning – taking into account chances and risks. We also provide you with guidelines on related organizational and cultural changes. 

Business Development

Business development with focus on presence and future

We help you to take into account the unique opportunities of innovation and technology as well as the related critical risks for business, politics and scientific community

  • Performance of risk reviews
  • Development and implementation of technology and innovation strategies
  • Evaluation of opportunities and risks for your business areas
  • Identification of new business areas and such areas subjected to critical risks in the future
  • Operational due diligence for the M&A process

We align innovation and technology with an efficient management of chances and risks.

In the VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity) world of today nothing remains unchanged. Strategies, customers, technologies, methods and structures are continuously subject to changes. Everything is on the test bench. Innovations determine our future.

Due to the enormous adaptation pressure on business managers and the foreseen changes in geopolitics, technologies, climate and society, a solid risk management is needed more than ever.

Organization Development

Organziation development is a planned systematic change management process. It allows to adapt organization and processes to the needs of digital transformation and its continuous changes under maximum involvement of all employees. A business culture with mutual respect, trust and maximum involvement is an essential success factor for the change management.

  • Together with you we analyse:
    • Purpose of your business also related to digital change
    • Your management and leadership vision 
    • Recruiting and human ressources training
    • Failure culture and your incentive system
    • Internal communication and dialogue with all stake holders
    • Efficiency of your organization and your processes
  • We support you to develop the concept of your change processes based on the preceding analysis
  • We offer coaching for your management. This will be an open processoriented approach to develop together perspectives and solutions for your company.
  • Based on an agreed time schedule, we validate together the achievements of the change process

Technology Management

Transversal Topics

The quality of the strategy, innovation, organization, decision making and technology evaluation depends on the contributing people, their available knowhow and the applied methods and tools. The provision of the required ressources enabling the staff to make use of the existing knowhow in order to fulfill their tasks is often under estimated. For this transversal and very well linked structures are needed in order to involve all stake holders and to avoid short sighted and unbalanced views (silos).

In order to achieve this the focus is:
To make available the existing knowhow, to organise it and to refer to it efficiently, systematically,
transversally and as much as possible automatically.

This is the critical success factor in order to make the right decisions for your business and to develop successful products and services. The best use of the digitalisation potential also contributes to that. The successful work of SRITec is based on the focused application of our knowledge and allows us to support you for your critical core activities in order to activate the potential of your  internal knowhow and also to expand it properly. In order to better understand and anticipate the continuous changes of our world the existing knowhow needs to be continuously kept up to date.

We carry out studies for you to access new knowhow. Therefore we maintain a network of very experienced experts and lateral thinkers from different disciplines in private and public sectors.
Through this think tank we develop new perspectives and concepts which help you to look beyond the horizon of your daily business. Knowhow is the central transversal function of each system and also each company. „Data is the new oil“ is the saying, but only if properly used to power the engine which generates the critical and value adding knowhow for you.

Topics in the transversal area „knowhow management“

  • Knowledge acquisition in areas of future trends / access new areas of knowhow
  • Intergrated end to end structures with system engineering principles
  • Integration of knowhow management and organization
  • Knowhow management
  • Systematic decision making and steering
  • Transfer chain from data analysis to information and knowhow
  • Linked information management
  • Model based engineering
  • Data analytics
  • Validation of data quality and uncertainty
  • Selection of IT tools and infra structure

Your advantage:

  • Securing of your existing step ahead for the future
  • innovation push
  • situation awareness
  • steering capabilities
  • documentation and reproducebility
  • avoidance of double work and redundancies
  • avoidance of local optimization
  • automatization and applications for data analytics and AI
  • increased efficiency through reduced iterations and improved quality

Knowledge acquisition in areas of future trends / accessing new areas of knowhow

  • Based on the experience and knowhow from our experts we discuss future trends and develop new methods or adapt proven tools.
  • Workshops and trainings for the methods, instruments and concepts help you to expand your vision and to better manage the future. By this way you avoid negative surprises. You will be better prepared for unforeseen events and manage them constructively. Unforeseen events are often linked with great opportunities. Automobiles, personal computers, smartphones and others have been considered as great achievements at the beginning only by few. We help you to be smarter!
