Abstract

The environment in which a company or organization operates today can be characterized
by accelerating change, the globalization of markets, the emergence of new technologies and
competitors, new regulatory requirements and ever more demanding users and citizens. In this
environment, the ability to innovate becomes a key success factor for most organizations. They
seek to continuously create and realize value by introducing new or changed products, services,
processes, models, methods, etc.
The reasons for an organization to innovate are many and can include to increase revenues,
growth and profitability, reduce costs and waste, increase the satisfaction of users, customers and
citizens, motivate employees and attract partners, collaborators and funding, and so on. Engaging
in innovation activities is thus a way for an organization to be future focused and effectively
deliver on its overall objectives to secure prosperity and longer-term relevance and survival.
The ability to innovate and to make it a core organizational capability is increasingly becoming
the most important differentiator and dominant success factor of organizations. Failing to
capture new opportunities and to respond to innovation challenges may consequently lead to
stagnation, irrelevance and ultimately to the demise of the organization.

Abstract

Ideen werden am Anfang gerne in Frage gestellt. Die Macher des StreetScooter sind anders herangegangen, sie haben den Status quo, der sich ihnen bot, in Frage gestellt. Der herkömmliche Innovationsprozess bei der Entwicklung neuer, nachhaltiger Produkte war in ihren Augen viel zu aufwendig und zu teuer. In der Automobilindustrie dauert er viele Jahre und verschlingt Milliarden. Wie ein radikal anderes Innovationsdenken zu bezahlbarer Funktionalität führt, zeigt die rasante Entwicklung eines ungewöhnlichen Unternehmens, das aus der Rheinisch-Westfälisch-Technischen Hochschule Aachen hervorgegangen ist und heute der Deutschen Post DHL gehört. Es ist eine e-mobile Erfolgsstory über ein Fahrzeug, das kundenspezifisch, wirtschaftlich, ökologisch, flexibel, sicher und zuverlässig ist.People love to challenge ideas at the start. The makers of StreetScooter approached things differently: they challenged the status quo they were presented with instead. In their view, the conventional process of innovation in developing new, sustainable products was much too complicated and too expensive. In the automobile industry, this takes many years and costs billions. The rapid development of an unusual company emerging from the RWTH Aachen University and now part of Deutsche Post DHL demonstrates how a radically different innovative thinking leads to affordable functionality, It is an e-mobile success story about a vehicle that is customized, economic, ecological, flexible, safe, and reliable.
