What do we expect from Innovation? Mostly disappointment

Paul Hobcraft

Good innovation is notoriously hard to achieve. Others looking at the innovation progress keep demanding tangible evidence and quantifiable guarantees that the outcome provides clear returns. Much of the innovation discovery journey is a disappointing one. Those not involved directly within the innovation project constantly remain skeptical or require more proof. So where does innovation sit within your organization? Innovation is full of rhetoric and hot air.

The gulf between innovation goals and execution

Jeffrey Phillips

Accenture has recently published an innovation survey of 500 executives in the US. I'm particularly partial to portions of this survey because the authors identify a real and growing problem - the gap between what executives want from innovation, and the organization's ability to deliver. By now everyone knows that innovation is a top three priority for executives. There's always been a gulf between desire for innovation and capability.

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. The sins we are still committing in the name of innovation pursuit.
