The fundamental stakeholder analysis and the derived package of measures shall maximize the probability of success and realise the best integration of all relevant reference groups.

Analysis of health and wellbeing related offers
The aim of this task is to identify relevant trends within the health care market and to develop appropriate strategies to integrate relevant services in the concept of the SI-Screen. Additionally, exceptional promising services shall be identified and implemented in different prototypes. From the analysis of all services relevant to the target group, success factors for acceptance, sustainability and suitability for the concept shall be evolved.

Innovation Management
A complementing innovation management will be set up and masterminded by SportKreativWerkstatt. According to the methodology of Holistic Innovation, a clear structure for the development process will be established. Through a fundamental preparation it will be nevertheless possible to react dynamically and to assure an attractive, effective, promising and accepted solution with highly innovative nature.
