Key Issues in Innovation Management – Revisited – Part 2

Tim Kastelle

In part 1 of this post , Ralph revisited key innovation issues that were already addressed by us three years ago. In addition to these still highly topical issues, we’d like to raise another four points which we personally foresee key for innovation management in the time to come – making no claim to completeness: Organizational Ambidexterity.

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.

One Size Doesn’t Fit All Innovation

Integrative Innovation

Yesterday, I was quite delighted to see my post Integrating Lean Startup and Design Thinking ranked #11 of the Top 100 Innovation Posts 2014 at Innovation Excellence. My conclusion: many of us are aware that innovation tools, even up-to-date ones, have a limited scope and that they can benefit from being complemented with other approaches. In fact, the real power lies in combining different innovation approaches to fit a unique context.

The fallacy of "modern" management when it comes to innovation management

Moves the Needle

Doing so means a new kind innovation management because the management most of us learned in school won’t quite do the trick. His very lean progressive assembly process was the result. But, when you try to innovate and create new demand using “modern management” for optimizing supply, don’t expect to be around forever. Cascading management hierarchies told workers what to do, and they did it. This is Lean Startup. Lean Innovation

Innovating: So What Is Possible?

Paul Hobcraft

Often we forget to frame what we want to really achieve in our innovation activity, instead we simply dive in and start innovating. I believe until we know what solutions we feel we need or the market wants, we will more often than not, end up disappointed in our innovation solutions. In recent years our innovation understanding and its management have significantly changed, due to numerous factors that have been happening. Innovation is no different.

Balancing Innovation via Organizational Ambidexterity – Part 3

Integrative Innovation

The first part highlighted that radical and incremental innovation build on two different innovation set-ups (exploration and exploitation, respect. In this final part, we illustrate that successful ambidexterity requires a well-managed hand-over from the explorative to the exploitative set-up.

What is an innovation team and who should be part of it

Tata Consultancy

Traditionally, organizations have defined their innovation teams narrowly, including only those groups that are directly responsible for delivering innovation.

Increasingly, everyone in the ecosystem is seen as a contributor to the innovation agenda, and all employees can be considered part of the innovation team.

Sinking the unthinkable

Paul Hobcraft

I believe Innovation is becoming overwhelmed by all the changes we are applying into innovation activity and its management. I would say the IM system is under even greater strain from the shifts coming from the multiple applications of technology, new approaches to design and modelling as well as all the necessary engagement and touch points. I think not. Orchestration is increasingly playing its part to manage all the assets and knowledge coming into play.

The wheel inbetween

The Future Shapers

Get innovation rolling: discover your Wheel Inbetween. Everyone knows that innovation is vital, and there is lots of great published thinking on smart ways to develop winning innovation ideas.

Consequently, the full value of successful innovation is diluted.

SCALING UP: From Corporate Startup to Innovation Impact

Integrative Innovation

More than three years ago, we noticed a pain point in corporate innovation: How should companies balance the different requirements in searching for tomorrow’s business and in running today’s business?

And many companies are also increasingly using Corporate Venture Capital to drive explorative innovation (see exhibit below).

Scaling-Up: Crossing the Internal Chasm in Corporate Innovation

Integrative Innovation

This article was co-written with Frank Mattes from Dual Innovation and innovation-3. The race is on for companies to find big, explorative or even “disruptive” innovation ideas. This race is fueled by shareholder’s and business media’s demands to be ‘more innovative’ as well as by the Digital Transformation tsunami – which already has reshaped some familiar shorelines in several industries.
