Lay the foundations and think in the long term (as a radical innovator would do)

ideas4allinnovation

You won’t be more innovative simply by being more disruptive, and you won’t necessarily be ahead of your time, either. To be a great innovator, according to this article published by Forbes, you must first lay the foundations that will allow you to envisage the changes the future will demand of you. That is how a radical innovator would behave, as opposed to a disruptive one, according to Daniel Newman, author of the article. Innovation disruption innovation

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.

PESTLED illuminates current influences, but more importantly, it alerts you to rapidly approaching changes and market dynamics across industries. Innovation 360 uses a six-step process.

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.

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. Have we this same luxury with the management and building of innovation?

Does culture eat strategy for breakfast?

Innovation 360 Group

Innovations are infinite, even within a finite market. However, not all innovations start with the same chance at a fully productive lifecycle. Innovations that survive are most often those that are supported by an organizational culture that plans innovation strategically and maintains a portfolio of ideas that function well in relation to each other. In fact, strategy, leadership and capabilities are the foundation but culture is the enabler.

Startup Engagement in Corporate Innovation

Integrative Innovation

From an innovation perspective, the ultimate objective is to validate promising initiatives and selectively scale them up in order to adapt or even renew the existing core business. The equity “obsession” of corporates becomes even more surprising as the main objective across all vehicles clearly lies on “new products & technologies”: 30% of corporates state this is the key objective followed by market/ customer access with 16%.

Why radical and disruptive innovation might not always be the answer

Ideanote

Surely , in a time where terms like sustaining and incremental innovation have a negative light, who would glorify them ? Isn’t there a risk of next radical or disruptive innovation blindsiding the company, potentially bankrupting the organization ? . Think about Innovation methods like a lean startup and design thinking. Then, the company develops the innovation for this market. With this mindset, it is lucky that big corporations innovate at all.

You Need an Innovation Strategy (if you don’t have one, here’s your life-saving guide to get one)

Ideanote

What is an innovation strategy? An innovation strategy is a plan you set in place to initiate and align policies and behaviors. These must individually and together, move you in the direction of a specific innovation goal.

How Human Resources Can Drive Innovation?

Ankush Chopra

If you ask someone the question “which function drives innovation in a company?”, But as you start digging deeper, additional responses will be Marketing, Supply Chain, Engineering, and Information Technology drive innovation. But HR has a massive impact on innovation – much more than people realize. So let’s understand how Human Resources can drive innovation? The post How Human Resources Can Drive Innovation?

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 . Accenture: 2015 US Innovation Survey.

So Where Is Innovation Heading?

Paul Hobcraft

I have written a fair amount about the new innovation era, offering a view on its future design. One that is jumping to a fresh cycle of innovative design. We are in the middle of it, some of you may not have noticed its impact and change but it is significant on the understanding of innovation, in it’s future design. To achieve this innovation has gone digital, pure and simple. So the need to innovate comes from digital as the source.

Building upon the four essential pillars for innovation

Paul Hobcraft

It is always welcome to read a thoughtful article that reminds me, no, it actually inspires me, by reinforcing my own belief that innovation is progressing, even if this is sometimes frustratingly slow. The innovation architecture is progressively being recognized and put into place, it’s forming the building blocks of the innovation platform we need to build upon, ones for more radical innovation outcomes. Establishing a Comprehensive Innovation Strategy.

This is the path of a flexible, agile, intelligent innovator. Test radical ideas and be ready to fail. In our own research on radical versus incremental innovators, mentioned in episode one, we found that radical innovators are more structured and there’s one very good reason for that. Incremental innovators improve slightly but they never have a chance at survival because market dynamics and the world itself are changing faster than they can.

CORPORATE ANTIBODIES ATTACK AND KILL INNOVATION

Innovation 360 Group

You will never be able to innovate in a way that conflicts with your unique company DNA. The organizational culture within your company won’t allow innovations like that to live. Organizations react in an almost biological way to innovation where there is no tissue match. The corporate antibodies attack the innovation and just destroy it. DNA includes the aspirations of the executive team and the balance in your portfolio between incremental and radical innovations.

Developing a new framework for risk and innovation.

Paul Hobcraft

I believe we need a new way to manage risk within our innovation activities. In a three-part series, part one outlined the implicit need to align innovation to the corporate strategy and through this we can determine ‘acceptable risk’ In part two I offered up numerous reasons why we should recognize and treat innovation risk differently, so as to allow it to perform closer to its promise of driving growth and achieving real advantage.

Business Model Innovation: Creating Pathways to Relevance

The Future Shapers

The innovation conversation is happening every day , no matter your industry, function or location. Unfortunately, the discussion can quickly turn into a haze of white noise and fuzziness as emphasis on theoretical definitions, frameworks, types of innovations and other aspects of enablement leave people puzzled and dazed, as opposed to motivated and ready to make a difference. But, should one start with incremental innovation or is radical innovation the way to go?

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. In this post two, within a three part series, I build the argument on why we need to treat innovation differently within any risk assessment.

Two strategic approaches to innovation: incremental vs radical

The BMI Lab Blog

There are two complementary approaches to innovation: incremental vs radical. When setting up an innovation strategy, there are many decisions to take. Should I choose an incremental innovation path? Or should I rather look for a radical, or disruptive, approach? This approach is very popular because it reduces the risk that radical innovation usually takes. Smartphone industry is a great example of this kind of innovation.
