Think Your Company’s Pursuit of Innovation has Run its Course? Think Again…

Qmarkets

If there’s anything we’ve learned from the last 10 years of technological advancements, it’s that humanity’s potential for enhancement, modification, deviation, and then reinvention, is categorically unfathomable. But it’s this mindset which must change in order for companies to maintain a competitive edge and fight disruption.

Reducing the friction around innovation

Paul Hobcraft

The Innovation Perspective view here is this : Innovation equally suffers constantly from this search for perfection, expected by organizations used to measuring value on established business (and metrics), not appreciating or building in the “value at stake” by not investing in new seemingly risky innovation projects that have limited ‘hard’ quantified returns prior to market entry. Of course, some frictions are by design and are intentionally built into the system.
