Bosch Innovation Framework

The Bosch Innovation Framework (BIF) is a method based on the lean start-up approach, iteratively exploring new businesses and describing the criteria necessary for evaluating the progress (i.e., maturity) of innovations in order to make evidence-based investment decisions. By applying different levels of maturity, innovations are classified and evaluated according to the framework.
