Warm and Fuzzy at the Front End of Innovation

Paul Hobcraft

Perhaps I have fallen into the very trap I have campaigned about in the past, in recognizing and resolving the disappointing results we achieve from all the work we put into the front end of innovation. The “warm and fuzzy” front end of innovation can make us all a little grumpy. I recently wrote out a newsletter – termed a thought or two – to my innovation network. The subject was the changes occurring at the front end of innovation.

Sometimes it seems that innovation is used as a catch all word. Innovation by type.

Idea to Value

One of the most misunderstood concepts in innovation management is why some companies can bring their ideas to life and continue innovating, while in other companies good ideas get no traction and die.

Applying innovation thinking in different horizons

Our inabilities to adapt needs changing.

Paul Hobcraft

According to a survey by McKinsey in 2011, 72% of our transformation programs fail to deliver on their original targets. Unless we create a strategy to transform, how can we re-imagine our innovation processes? We talk so much about “innovation is critical” today and in our future, but is rarely achieved. The confidence levels plummet as the pressure to innovate mounts, simply because the necessary components of delivering innovation are critically missing.

Spotting Innovation Opportunities
