Lay the foundations and think in the long term (as a radical innovator would do)

ideas4allinnovation

You won’t be more innovative simply by being more disruptive, and you won’t necessarily be ahead of your time, either. In fact, sometimes disruption can drive you to the edge of a precipice, if you read the future wrong.

So, what distinguishes a radical innovator?

Key Issues in Innovation Management – Revisited – Part 1

Tim Kastelle

At the beginning of 2013, Tim Kastelle and I identified four key issues in innovation management for the time to come. From our point of view, all of the issues pinned down at that time have gained significant importance, are being intensively debated and can still be considered cutting-edge for companies to stay ahead in managing innovation. Let’s have a brief look at each of them: Differentiating and integrative innovation concepts.

A Structured Cultural Approach Managing Uncertainty

Disruption is the new normal in the global, mobile, digital world. Defining innovation. Economist Joseph Schumpeter famously defined the term as, “Innovation is creative destruction where entrepreneurs combine existing elements in new ways.” Building a culture of innovation.

Are we playing snakes and ladders with innovation?

Paul Hobcraft

Originally from India the game is a simple race contest based on sheer luck and I am beginning to wonder if we are playing a new version of this with innovation? It just all depends on our luck in rolling the dice, a serendipity with a darker twist that many companies seem to be playing with their innovation capability building. The game came to mind as I read through a recent survey on Innovation. Have we this same luxury with the management and building of innovation?

Successful Innovators Apply Multiple Leadership Styles Simultaneously

Innovation 360 Group

While much has been written on choosing the most promising innovation project and helping it succeed in the market after implementation, one crucial step in the middle hasn’t received enough attention: how to actually get the job done and done well. Leadership styles are critical to innovation efforts, especially when working with uncertainty. Radical Innovators more adaptive.

How to create an innovation culture that lasts

The Future Shapers

Many organisations kick-off an innovation programme with innovation training or brainstorming sessions. Seeing that it is easier to execute, this can be a good way to engage the organisation around innovation intent. A good programme that delivers fresh ideas utilise the power of collaboration to create repeatable differentiated value in the market and one can appreciate that creative brainstorming alone is not going to deliver that type of return.

Does culture eat strategy for breakfast?

Innovation 360 Group

Innovations are infinite, even within a finite market. However, not all innovations start with the same chance at a fully productive lifecycle. Innovations that survive are most often those that are supported by an organizational culture that plans innovation strategically and maintains a portfolio of ideas that function well in relation to each other. In fact, strategy, leadership and capabilities are the foundation but culture is the enabler.

Customer Orientation Effects on Innovation

Integrative Innovation

There is a lot of dicussion around how customer orientation effects innovation. The most extreme assertion is to “ignore the customer” in order to not becoming distracted from true innovativeness by getting too close to customers, limiting innovation to incremental new offerings. Danneels studies the effects of customer orientation on a firm’s innovativeness. Hence, by definition, disruptive innovations would initially satisfy emerging segments.

Organizational Models for Breakthrough Innovation

Integrative Innovation

As we have suggested earlier, innovation activities that are radical or disruptive in nature, should be separated from incremental innovation around a company’s established core business. The main reasons are: Required capabilities, structures, approaches, success metrics and culture for radical/disruptive innovation are highly incompatible with those required for incremental innovation.

Idea to Value

Every company says that innovation is important, and that they value the ideas of their people. Yet the problem lies in the fact that so few established companies actually know how to go about getting value out of their innovation ambitions, let alone turning it into profit.

Why Building a Culture of Innovation is your Competitive Advantage

The Case for Dual Innovation

Tim Kastelle

As recently outlined, I consider organizational ambidexterity to be a key innovation issue for organizations in 2016 and beyond. Let’s sum up some relevant findings of these studies, making the case for dual innovation management: BCG: Most Innovative Companies 2014 . Accenture: 2015 US Innovation Survey.

Tomorrow thinking for CEOs

The Future Shapers
