The Innovation Station: Episode 5 - Refine and define your processes – how SMEs can unlock potential
This is a Sponsored Commercial Podcast in association with InterTradeIreland. “A startup is a race against time – whether it’s chasing milestones, raising revenue or gaining customers – the art is understanding when you are out of your depth and when a change in approach is needed.” Not every startup has access or the ability to raise the investment needed to make their business a success. SMEs need to ask themselves; how can we add value and manage expectations? That’s the advice from Henry Joseph-Grant, Chief Commercial Officer at Talixo and one of the founding members of Just Eat UK. Henry helped to build the food and delivery service from an early startup in the UK to a $2.44 billion IPO. In this episode of InterTradeIreland’s Innovation Station podcast, Henry shares his own experiences of working with startups all over the world, as well as highlighting the innovation and scaling challenges that even tech giants such as Uber can face. “Introspection; looking at yourself and really understanding your weaknesses and strengths is more important than benchmarking competitor businesses. Make the changes necessary and gain new skills.” Speaking at a recent InterTradeIreland business masterclass held at Ryan Academy, Henry emphasizes that there is no ‘swiss-army knife approach’ to scaling with limited investment, and that SMEs need an individualized approach into every market, regardless of industry or if it’s a consumer or software focused business. Henry adds that as part of an effective approach towards innovation, SMEs must take a strategic view on scaling. It’s important to get the model right, then grow, otherwise you risk burning through cash. “Scale fast enough for YOU – know what you’re doing and where you need to be. Cultivate the right culture. Create a great atmosphere – don’t have ivory towers, treat everyone like co-owners and co-founders. Make sure there are opportunities for staff to progress. Treat people with integrity- you need to value your workers.”

The Innovation Station: Episode 4 - 'Why approaching work in a new way leads to innovation for SMEs'
Can a fresh way of thinking really awaken new potential in SMEs to drive growth? According to all the research, it’s a resounding yes. “Design thinking” is already used by 60% of Fortune 500 firms and now Irish SMEs are starting to catch up. Dr. Peter Robbins of Dublin City University Business School is one of Ireland’s foremost experts in innovation. In a masterclass held recently at Ryan Academy, he explains how the ‘Design Thinking’ toolkit can harness innovation and radically improve processes for small businesses. Speaking to InterTradeIreland’s Innovation Station podcast, Peter explains that Design Thinking can ‘de-risk’ complex innovation projects by testing and prototyping the entire process, which in turn then maximises the return on investment at the end. “There is a tool book and methodology to Design Thinking as opposed to blue sky thinking or naval gazing. It is something that needs ‘top down’ support, but Design Thinking is quite accessible and if companies commit, it is a process that delivers results.” Peter stresses that businesses shouldn’t be put off by the term Design Thinking or assume it is more suited to creative companies. Like other innovation processes, it’s one that requires determination and a focus on customers. “Design Thinking helps SMEs find other access points to understand the marketplace. If you can create a product, service or experience that hits the ‘sweet spot’ of being desirable, feasible and viable, then you are right at the heart of innovation success.”
