Key Innovation Issues for 2016 and Beyond

Integrative Innovation

Hence, I gave it some thought, starting by revisting an earlier reflection: Beginning of 2013, Tim Kastelle and I identified four key issues in innovation management for the time to come. From my 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. Innovation can’t be tackled through broad-brush recipes or tools.

As products and services proliferate and basic needs are met, customers become more sophisticated and more demanding, desiring products, services and business models that work together and don't require configuration, integration or effort by the consumer to "make them work".

Becoming an innovative company: better late

Jeffrey Phillips

So, after over a decade of innovation consulting, I can say without doubt that companies that are just starting to innovate have it much better than those that were attempting it years ago. That's because as more companies try more innovation, more tools are vetted, more methods explored and exposed. Today, there are more proven methods and more people with more innovation skill and experience, so if you are starting now you can get started on the right foot.

11 Paradoxes of Entrepreneurial Thinking: why entrepreneurship can hardly be taught

Open Innovation EU

Entrepreneurial thinking is described as one of the most relevant skills for the 21st-century workforce (Bacigalupo, Kampylis, Punie, & Brande, 2016). As opposed to entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial thinking is not necessarily bound to entrepreneurs (to be); it is an essential skill for ‘strengthening human capital, employability and competitiveness’ (Bacigalupo et al., The entrepreneur is an innovator and disturbs the economy (De Jong & Marsili, 2010; Schumpeter, 1934).

The Challenges being Faced by Innovation Consultants

Paul Hobcraft

From my perspective I’ve been looking at a real challenge today, that many consultants offering innovation services are not providing real sustaining consulting value to clients, only ad-hoc services. I think if this trend continues it will be a mistaken course. In many ways, the consulting industry specializing in innovation is its own worst enemy. Innovation solutions simply need to be crafted in my opinion. The external innovation consultant needs to change.

One of the things that has always made innovation so enjoyable to me is the fact that every business discipline seems to believe they "own" innovation, a premise from which they have devised their particular flavor of innovation – one that in each case mirrors their unique perspectives on business.
