In Maks Holdings, innovation planning is divided into a few common steps: Firstly, staff are encouraged to give ideas, for that, suggestion-box systems are functional within the organization. That is where innovation begins. Once ideas are collected through a suggestion-box, team leaders organize team discussion or meetings. All the members are asked to write each idea they come up with on separate sticky notes. Then have the team create an “affinity diagram” on the wall or whiteboard by collectively organizing all ideas into columns of similar ideas. Now the drudgery begins! Then, the members review the entire list of ideas and agree on which ones to explore further. We have a consultant team for doing UAE And international level market research, existing customers, corporate companies, agents etc..
where we take continuous feedback and do changes from time to time whenever it's required, focusing customers with the international market too. Next, quantify the benefits of each selected idea to pursue and see how it fits with Maks Holdings strategy, mission, and objectives. Now team leaders estimate the business potential; the expected outcomes of implementing the idea. Now, the innovation team will first develop this “picture of the future”, the team decides on how to possibly go about the process. Once the innovation is applied, continuous examination is done by the innovation team for possible improvements to the process, product, or service.
The strategy Maks Holdings utilizes for implementing innovations is individual counseling, besides, rewards and focus groups play a significant role when implementing service-based innovations. A mix of execution strategies including implementation by persuasion, leader intervention, participation, and even edict are linked to service innovation success. Participative employee-centered implementation strategies emerged as the most critical in the diffusion of service innovations.
