Definition LEAD User Method

The LEAD User Method was developed by Professor Eric von Hippel at MIT, the Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachussetts, USA, in the 1980s. It turns out that these innovative activities are not randomly distributed, but are focused on a certain group of particularly advanced users, customers (LEAD users).

Goal of the LEAD User Method

The aim of the LEAD User Method, which follows the approach of Open Innovation, is to develop products, processes, services or business models that are particularly close to the market and customer-oriented as well as geared to the end user.

Advantages of the LEAD User Method

The LEAD User Method ensures that the know-how and commitment of your own employees and external experts are used for the innovation project. Advantages are an intensive exchange with trend leading users, customers and persons from analogous industries, or the prevention of the "not invented here" syndrome: Employees prevent innovations because they were not developed in their own company.
