Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We currently use Bubble in NPD (New Product Development) to manage all new projects in development. It is used as a project management tool for the Innovation project managers and also as the "one point of truth" for all cross-functional teams involved in the project. Under each project/SKU profile, cross-functional teams are able to see the project overview, their tasks, what stage the project is in, meeting notes, basic timelines and who is involved.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Bubble Innovator is our "single source of truth" for stage gate and portfolio management reporting. It is central to our PMO function and is used for regular monthly reporting of metrics, issue escalation & resolution, and portfolio optimization. Bubble Innovator has provided a level of transparency across the organization that was previously impossible to achieve. There are some key elements of the product that enabled this: highly intuitive user interface allows frequent data upload with minimal effort; visually appealing and simple automated reports drive transparency and alignment across the organization, while streamlining reporting (people can now spend time doing productive work, and less time trying to match an ever-evolving format for reports); and the new addition of highly customized reporting, so that users across many functions (upstream, downstream, pipeline, operations, regulatory, etc) can very easily create the reports that are best suited to their needs, and the questions their leaders are asking.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We implemented Bubble Innovator within our R&D/Marketing Department for 2 main reasons, Portfolio Management and Gate approvals. We implemented the system in the past year and everyone in R&D and Marketing is working in this system. The system has addressed the issue of many different Excel spreadsheets of our portfolio, not organized correctly, not enough information on the spreadsheets; one central location is the biggest benefit. We also incorporated the Gate Process for approval of all our projects and this allows us to report to upper management in a consistent manner.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

My company uses Bubble Innovator as the main tool for portfolio tracking, reporting and analysis for entire Orthopedics R&D. It brings tremendous viability to the innovation pipeline and provides up to date information on where we are with each of the program. The further cuts it provides into state of projects, risks, financials and overall platform level projections are fantastic.

Bubble Innovator is being used across my whole organization as a tool for both stage gate and portfolio decision making. It has greatly improved the efficiency of data gathering and presentation in moving from spreadsheets and PowerPoint decks to the single Bubble Innovator tool.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Bubble Innovator was initally developed and configured for use mainly within our R&D group 3 years ago. Very soon it became obvious that there were huge benefits to the whole organisation. By making our New Product Development pipeline visible to the whole organization it promotes cross functional alignemnt and focus on the NPD priorities. Innovator is now used across all business group/functions globally, and is seen as the single 'source of truth' for key NPD information. It has replaced a miriad of other unconnected tools and ad hoc reports. We use the Innovator Project Dashboard to manage the 'business' data for NPD projects, it also drives our Project Reviews and Reports, Stage Gate Reviews, Portfolio Metrics which are automatically rolled up by platform, business group etc. The project prioritzation and resource management functionality provides true cross functional visibility on resourcing capabilities and constraints.

Innovator provided us with one system to manage all our 'non technical' NPD project data including project status and risk reports, project financials to Stage Gate & Portfolio Analysis. Having one place to capture all the data has created huge efficiencies for project teams, project managers, portfolio directors and senior management, eliminating multiple other reporting mechanisms, share point sites etc.etc..

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Bubble Innovator rolled out 3 months ago across our entire organization. It presently is addressing 2 major gaps for us. As a Project Management tool, it is enabling consistent reporting from our project managers, focusing on upward communication around project status, risk, timeline, and resource levels. As a Portfolio Management tool, management is able to look across the entire business to make prioritization decisions, with the project profile data to make those tradeoff decisions now at their fingertips.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Bubble Innovator was implemented to provide a single source of truth that would support fact-based decision-making, consistency of project delivery and would be accessible to all who needed it. Now used across 4 departments within our business we use Bubble Innovator to provide a better understanding of potential projects and help strike a clearer balance between long and short-term innovation opportunities, enabling team members to work on more projects with greater efficiency, and at the same time, provide better visibility of the measurable benefits being delivered.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Bubble Innovator has had a tremendous impact on our ability to clearly visualize our complex product portfolio and to manage the priorities so our resources are effectively deployed. Managing our resources and ensuring that our corporate strategies were being met was beginning to get unmanageable as we grew. Bubble Innovator fit very well within the stage-gate process that we were deploying. We are using it among multiple organizations throughout the world.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Bubble Innovator is being used across our organizations as a single "source of truth" for new product development, program/project descriptions, financial impact, status and stage gate milestone progress. It is further being adapted to be used for the same purpose for research programs and clinical studies.
The Bubble Innovator product solves the problem of multiple sources of truth floating through your organization regarding the status of any program/project at any point in time. It also reduces the multiple demands from different quarters of an "update" since you can point everyone to Bubble Innovator as that "single source of truth" for the new product development (NPD) pipeline.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I believe Bubble Innovator is an extremely valuable tool for our entire organization especially for management. This tool provides the ability to see the full consolidated portfolio as well as the specific details of each project. This tool also allows the organization to rank the strategic importance of each project and makes it very easy to generate graphs for presentations. Each cross functional team member can also contribute and document their own progress in each project as well.
