Solving the 'Who are My Stakeholders' Dilemma: A Quick Innovation Managers’ Guide

HYPE Innovation

I was recently asked a very down-to-earth question: “Where do you find answers to practical issues in innovation management?” To this, I’d normally reply forums, journals, HBR , Springwise , and Scenario Magazine. They’re all sources I recommend on a regular basis.

Innovation Dies When Fear Rules

Getting the right question is half the battle

RTI Innovation Advisors

I return once again to one of my favorite sayings, by Stephen Covey, who said (I'm paraphrasing): sharpen the saw before you start cutting the wood. It's a really simple thought - do the right things to prepare before you start a big task, but we lose sight of what adequate preparation looks like in so many activities. There are several reasons for this. First, many corporate activities are second nature. We know how to do them by heart, so preparation feels like wasted time.

What Features Typify Innovative Research Networks?

The Future Shapers

It seems widely accepted that innovation today is a collaborative endeavor, with universities playing a significant part. For instance, a study published last year showed that approximately 80% of published papers had contributed to at least one patent. What’s more, most of these connections were outside of their core domain, so patents would be registered in a completely different domain to the research article, underlining the power of basic research in driving recombinative innovation.
