We drive a cultural change in the workplace. It is just not enough to create goals. Top level architects have identified standards and capabilities which are beautifully organized in our city map. Engineers can refer to the city map when they want to build something new. They can explore whether a capability already exists and leverage existing capabilities to solve new customer problems.

A centre of innovation and excellence

Intuit India is developing as a centre of innovation and engineering excellence. The teams are significantly contributing across the desktop ecosystem with TurboTax Desktop and QuickBooks Desktop. Every employee is expected to think like an entrepreneur, and it is everyone’s job to create, invent, and build new innovations.

Product creators identify opportunities

We refer to the characteristics of successful products studied by co-founder Scott Cook as the principles of Customer Driven Innovation. We use them to make decisions about the opportunities to pursue, solutions to further invest in, and areas likely to be less fruitful. Our strategy for the future aligns with Customer Driven Innovation and our product creators apply them every day.

Design for Delight is how we work

Deep thinking was the methodology Scott Cook needed to drive his innovation efforts. With that, Design for Delight was born. The concept is where we take a company of thousands of people, and break them down into small, passionate, cross functional teams. The approach comprises three principles:

  1. Deep Customer Empathy
  2. Go Broad to Go Narrow
  3. Rapid Experimentation with Customers

End-to-end outcomes for big wins

We create value through new business opportunities like QuickBooks Online Advanced. The teams across Consumer Group, Small Business and Self Employed Group, and Intuit Platform deliver collaborative innovations that accelerate deliverables from weeks to minutes—moving from legacy technology to modern cloud platform.

Our technologists love to innovate

Global Engineering Days

Global Engineering Days is a time for technologists at Intuit to focus on areas of passion.

It is an opportunity for the teams to hone their tech skills and bring new ideas to life.

Employee Speak

Intuit encourages its employees to innovate. I participated in Intuit Innovation Week and Global Engineering Days which allowed me to work on ideas that were not on our team's roadmap. I dedicated time to these initiatives and it helped me to dive deep into the D4D process. I was able to execute quickly for customers by working with a cross-functional, cross-location team.

Developers are encouraged to explore their customers’ problems and leverage innovation to solve them. I loved the current Global Engineering Days theme: Escape from the Monoliths. It gave me an opportunity to capitalize on my engineering spirit and work on a customer-driven problem statement. Other Intuit powered events like Hacktoberfest drive innovation too.
