Product Innovation – Flow Hive

I did promise that I would share my thoughts with you on what may appear across the five variants of the February 2017 CIMA Operational Case Study exams.

Having spent some time scouring the internet and will start to share my resources with you.

The Flow Hive “It’s the beekeepers dream, turn a tap right on your beehive and watch pure fresh honey flow right out of your Flow™ hive and into your Jar! No mess no fuss and the bees are hardly disturbed.” A short video, that highlights the innovative nature of the Flow Hive that may help boost revenues at Mavis Venderby, especially to large scale bee keepers.

Consider the E1 strategic benefits of such a product and product lifecycle issues, F1 and sources of finance required and P1 costing systems to manufacture/set selling prices.
