Engineering education on the 'fuzzy' front end: a high-technology entrepreneurship model (2006 - 02) The fuzzy front end In large industry and in small firms alike, the screening and development of early embryonic ideas is often dubbed the 'fuzzy-front end' of the product innovation cycle.
The fuzzy front end represents an area where most innovation specialists agree that tremendous value is created.
Therefore, an emphasis was devoted to the fuzzy front end since it is critical to the success of small entrepreneurial firms.
Before this, one has the fuzzy front end of the innovation process which occurs in large and start-up companies alike and where the applications and markets are considered embryonic (Koen et al. 2002).
The problem with the fuzzy front end is that there is no obvious beginning in most cases, multiple inputs from various internal and external sources, and little or no planning.
