Purpose Driven Innovation

Gregg Fraley

Just kidding, Design Thinking can be a good choice, as can Agile, or Lean, or your own blended system. Do Purpose First, Select a Framework, Then Do Projects. Without a Clear Purpose, Innovation Drifts Off Course. It may seem obvious but unless you know who you are, and what your purpose is, as an organization you will flounder. Innovation Leaders sometimes get it backwards. This wastes Time and Money. In the innovation space there is endless discussion about frameworks. Which is best?

One team I’ve worked with helps bridge this gap on strategic projects by maintaining an “experience roadmap.” The roadmap is a collection of prototypes showing what each release will look like. Agile teams can lose the long term direction by focusing on small sprints. An experience roadmap shows how a product can evolve—and whether it has weak points along the way. The roadmap doesn’t just benefit the project team or the designer.
