The largest bank within the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf Cooperation Council

HYPE Success in the Telecommunication Industries

Project 3: NOKIA; One of the largest telecommunications companies in the world builds a global market place for innovations with HYPE


No tool was used that could bring together the different stake holders from the different networks in 150 countries
The old stage gate process turned out to be a bottle neck, blocking potential breakthrough ideas
Not all needs of the different stakeholders regarding innovation management software could be met
Nokia Solutions Networks was not able to involve partners efficiently in the innovation process


Rearranged the process covered within HYPE from a process driven stage and gate approach into a community approach
Nokia Solutions Networks get 15% of their revenue from new products that were captured and developed within HYPE
HYPE brings together Nokia Solutions Networks employees and partners world wide to a community driven innovation network
With HYPE, 2000 valid ideas in two years and 500 Mio. € in revenue from implemented new product ideas within HYPE were generated
