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. Leadership styles used deliberately. Key characteristic of Leadership styles.

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.

Five Innovation Practices

There is no “one size fits all” formula for innovation management success. Demystifying innovation takes experiments and practices. The post Five Innovation Practices appeared first on Innovation Management.

Uncharted Waters Disrupting the Corporate Boardrooms

Paul Hobcraft

In a recent report called “ Radical Innovation and Growth: Global Board Survey 2016 ” (link opens the pdf) we have results from a survey jointly conducted by Deloitte Denmark and Board Network – The Danish Professional Directors Association, that opens up much that can concern us about the current boardroom and its great difficulty with managing more radical innovation. A lack of understanding innovation in all its forms is coming back to haunt them.

The New Innovation Need: Organizing within a Networks of Collaborators

Paul Hobcraft

How and where does innovation fit will clearly depend on this transforming effect. We are fairly clear that incremental innovation is just not cutting through to give the types of growth expected. Our existing organization needs to envisage a changing world full of disruption that calls for radical change. It needs bold leadership. It calls for bold management to instigate such a transformation. Welcome to the transforming world of Innovation Ecosystems.

Four Models of Intrapreneurship Innovation

Research shows that growth fueled through organic innovation is more profitable than growth driven by acquisition, in part because the organizational capability required is vastly different. But the litmus test is.

Scaling Up Startups in Corporate Settings

Innovation Excellence

In recent years, an increasing intensity in collaboration between incumbent companies and startups has been observed. Meanwhile, close to 80% of corporations and startups have already been or are collaborating. The mutual – actually complementary – benefits seem pretty obvious: Benefits for startups include availability of office space, hardware, networks, support and potential funding access.

Innovation is Change Management

Business Innovation Design

When you think of change management, you would typically think about managing changes taking place for people transitioning into a new work environment through careful interventions. Be it senior leadership shake-ups or operationalizing new business model, change is disruptive when the people in the organization are not to adapting for the new transition. Innovation is no different. Innovation is creating something new and different that creates impact.

Innovation 360 Group

Are you confident in your strategic thinking, and your organization’s internal innovation competencies and skills? Innovation 360 has used this framework in many assignments. Innovation 360 uses a six-step process. This is what we call incremental innovation.

Future-proof Your Innovation Management: Dual Innovation

Integrative Innovation

Most advocates of the Three Horizons model see it from a time (-to-impact) perspective or use it to classify different innovation types. We propose that in each of the three areas there is a different logic / operating model for managing innovation to be applied to generate business impact from innovation initiatives. The specific logic in each of these playing fields manifests e.g. in specific leadership, processes, metrics, governance and people / culture factors.

Innovation and Organizational Culture

Innovation Excellence

Recently, the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) has published key findings of their latest “Most Innovative Companies 2014” survey. According to BCG’s research, successfully innovating companies approach innovation as a system. Beside the annual ranking, headed by the top three companies Apple, Google and Samsung, some insightful outcomes with regard to organizational and cultural requirements have striked my eye.

A Structured Cultural Approach Managing Uncertainty

Innovation 360 Group

New technologies can be deployed with a swipe of a finger, appearing across billions of devices all over the world, changing market dynamics in a heartbeat, while competition from emerging markets isn’t just producing cheaper goods and copycat products, but radically redefining the terms of production and distribution. Defining innovation. Many people view innovation as spontaneous, unorganized and unpredictable. Building a culture of innovation. Why do we innovate?

Digital Transformation Combines Customer Experience and Operational Efficiency

Integrative Innovation

The adequate approach will depend on the company’s context, the industry environment, and the objectives executive management wants to achieve: Pathway 1 makes sense if the customer experience the company provides is around industry average and the threat of digital disruption is not high. For further, worthwile details of this research I recommend reading the entire article at MIT Sloan Management Review. In 2015 and 2017, research by Peter Weill and Stephanie L.

Overcome resistance and capture growth in the Financial Services Industry

Dealing with uncertainty demands innovative ideas. Combatting uncertainty demands innovative ideas. Historically, FS organizations have been challenged by FinTechs and other upstarts, and have managed to survive, but not necessarily thrive. Innovative ideas are purchased externally and often not well integrated. It drives innovation to a transactional level and leads organizations to seek the perceived lower risk of acquiring new ideas vs developing them in house.

Managing Change Despite Uncertainty

Innovation 360 Group

Innovation360 has identified are three levels of change management essential for creating a culture of innovation. The first is aimed at the macro/micro-scale of environmental volatility, using a management model invented by Magnus Penker called UPACS (Uncertainty, Paradoxes, Ambiguity, Complexity, and Speed). The second recognizes all of the organization’s internal forces, including preparing and motivating stakeholders to handle the reality of radical innovation.

Innovation is About Getting Beyond the Idea

Integrative Innovation

When companies launch innovation initiatives, they typically allot almost all of their time and energy to that initial 1 percent—the thrilling hunt for the breakthrough idea. The real innovation challenge, however, lies beyond the idea. Even the best-managed corporations in the world struggle to execute innovation initiatives. This challenge, which we call the other side of innovation, is widely misunderstood.

outsourcing’ uncertainty, particularly in early phases of radical/disruptive innovation activities. Those tools are often organized as independent units or activities within the corporation or are ideally embedded in a single unit dedicated to explorative innovation altogether along with internal ventures. However, startup engagement is also increasingly used for tapping into entirely new markets or technologies as well as spotting disruptive innovation opportunities.

Scaling-Up: The Foundation

Integrative Innovation

The – in the truest sense of words – ‘billion-dollar-question’ we are addressing is: How can companies generate more business impact from non-incremental innovation? The solution to this question lies in the middle part of an end-to-end process for non-incremental innovation. In Dual Innovation, this Playing Field has its own, dedicated operating model, just like the explorative and the exploitative innovation domain.

Treat Your Innovation Pipeline just like your Sales Pipeline

Destination Innovation

Managing the Sales pipeline is a well-developed executive skill in any company selling large ticket items to business customers. Some of the key actions in managing the pipeline include: Qualification questions have to be answered. The pipeline of innovation projects for new and improved products and services is also strategically vital for the business but typically it is not treated with the same attention or importance. Is there a customer need for each innovation?

Is Organizational Structure The Secret to Innovation?

Leapfrogging

Just about everyone wants more creativity and innovation these days. While most companies agree that innovation is vital, few actually spend time creating structures or devising rewards systems hinged on creativity. Many leaders also struggle with the fact that innovation comes from culture, something that’s hard to measure or manage. Bahcall’s book argues that the first step is to balance innovation with execution.

The Case for Dual Innovation

Tim Kastelle

The first time I was advocating the idea of a dual innovation approach, here also referred to as organizational ambidexterity, is now more than 5 years ago. 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 .

Is it REALLY disruptive? It matters.

What is innovation management and why your organization needs it

hackerearth

Understanding Innovation Management. Is it a lack of innovation or an inability to cope with change? Either way, businesses need to identify where they are going wrong because innovation as a business strategy is here to stay. For survival, innovation is almost obligatory (Drucker, 1999). An innovation process “connects upstream idea valuation to downstream production and release to market.” Like any business function, innovation can be managed.

15 most important Innovation Theories your company should be using

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. In fact, according to some estimates by Doblin , 96% of all new innovations which established companies attempt fail to make a return on investment. Suggested viewing: 12 – Disruptive Innovation.

Innovation is Not Necessarily Disruptive

Game-Changer

So, last week’s post Innovation is the opposite of what we’re pretending the word means hit a nerve; as it should. Some people quickly commented that disruptive and radical innovation is rare and that 99% of established organizations really pursue incremental innovation: @PaulBromford @jorgebarba Good post, but I would suggest that it focuses on the radical disruptive end of the spectrum. Continuous small innovations matter as well.

The Pressing Need to Link Risk into an Innovation Strategy- part one

Paul Hobcraft

I want to bring together some thoughts on risk and innovation. I feel we spend less time on the management of risk within our innovation initiatives, as we so often simply measure risk on established risk / return lines of known existing business criteria, treating it as part of our existing ongoing business and that is plainly wrong. You Need an Innovation Strategy for it to really be seen as a critical resource of an organization. The third is to manage trade-offs.

Developing a new framework for risk and innovation.

Paul Hobcraft

I believe we need a new way to manage risk within our innovation activities. It needs to be treated differently from the general ‘risk management’ criteria applied within our business organizations. This post here is the third and last part , part three, where I lay out different mechanisms and framing of risk and innovation. We need to formulate a more robust risk innovation framework. To repeat : Risk management is their core competency.

Treating Innovation Risk Differently, Dealing with Uncertainty

Paul Hobcraft

We need to open up our thinking about risk and innovation management. We should aim for a really healthy construct that does help all involved or associated with innovation and managing risk, that gives a better chance of pushing beyond the incremental innovation that avoids most risk and disappoints those seeking real growth. Part one focused on linking risk into an innovation strategy that needed to align to the corporate one.

Tomorrow thinking for CEOs

The Future Shapers

In his latest book “The day after tomorrow”, he is asking four pertinent questions to help you with that a bit more: Why is it almost impossible for large organisations to spot new and radical technologies quickly, and develop their potential? VUCA leadership. They know that the battle between every startup and incumbent comes down to whether the incumbent innovates before the startup gets distribution. Innovation is a contact sport.

Exploring the Intrapreneurial Way in Large Organizations

Paul Hobcraft

Large organisations sense they are missing out on radically different business opportunities and cast their envious eyes towards the young start-ups, not just coming up with original ideas to solve existing problems and pent-up needs, but seeing the work as potentially disruptive to those managing in the existing space. It is tapping into an internal need for everyone involved, to innovate in different and more radical ways.
