Extending innovations value- appreciating the whole system.

Paul Hobcraft

So my reflective points were these as we always should consider the whole connected system of innovation. Extending innovations value – appreciating the whole system. We must step back and see the whole value chain system for innovation. The innovation value chain needs the following, seemingly obvious but often missed points to consider: An established system that is clearly repeatable to ‘push’ innovation through constantly. There is always a time to reflect.

A New Integrated Innovation Engagement System

Paul Hobcraft

We need not only a new innovation management system, we need a modern engagement platform. It is constantly adapting to the needs of the project, not to the system.

Does it make sense?
