For innovation to be successful, the bottom line is the commitment and focus made for the building the capabilities and competencies in innovation as people make us the real value and ARE the innovation success equation in my opinion, so simply invest in them by focusing on the 3 C’s of developing their Capability, Competency and Capability.

To accelerate innovation, focus on culture

Jeffrey Phillips

There's an old joke about perspective and laziness I love and have used before on this blog, because it illustrates many of the challenges (and opportunities) of corporate innovation. This analogy aligns so well to what corporate America does when it comes to a focus on innovation - intent discovery on things that don't matter, while purposefully ignoring the factors that must change to make innovation successful.

Innovation is a cultural phenomenon

Jeffrey Phillips

It's your culture that's holding you back when you try to innovate, but no one wants to admit that. Most consultants and executives want to focus on interesting innovation tools, or idea management software, or creative design concepts, because these are flashy and new, and distract attention from the real challenge at hand. Which is your culture. If culture "eats strategy for breakfast", what do you think it eats for lunch and dinner?

Innovating in the midst of chaos and disruption

Jeffrey Phillips

But, as you are well aware, this is not a blog about poetry, but a blog about innovation. Kipling wasn't writing about new product development, business model change or innovation, but what he is writing is entirely applicable to our situation today - first quarter 2021. Waiting for chaos or disruptions to end before adapting loses ground in two dimensions. First, you don't learn during the chaos if you don't engage the chaos.
