What is ITONICS Workflow?

Workflows are phase-gate processes that push projects and ideas forward. Phase-gate processes can also be set up to easily see in what developmental stage a new technology or trend is, or how a startup is evolving.

Note that this feature will not be automatically available to all subscribers and may be part of a separate ITONICS subscription plan. Contact us at account_manager@itonics.de to trial the feature for free.

Workflow enables you to manage the development and progress of ideas, projects, programs, or drivers of change in a standardized, repeatable and transparent manner. The Workflow feature automates the tasks of manually assigning different people and stages for activities or drivers of change.

Set up workflows to enable driving phase-gate coordination and tracking of project and portfolio management, opportunity discovery, tech management, growth hacking, and ideation.
