The following is an excerpt from Relentless Innovation: What Works, What Doesn’t--and What That Means for Your Business by Jeffrey Phillips. In the United States alone there are hundreds of large, successful firms with recognizable brand names that we encounter every day. We constantly hear innovation success stories about firms like Apple and Procter & Gamble, but we rarely hear about innovation in their direct competitors, Dell and Unilever, much less about innovation in any of the thousands of firms worldwide that compete in these markets. In every region and industry the same pattern is repeated: A small handful of firms are recognized as consistent innovators, used as case studies and examples, while we hear little or nothing about innovation in the vast majority of the other firms in those industries.
By Doreen Lorenzo, president, frog FORTUNE -- Despite the many case studies and op-eds you might read on the importance of "innovation" as a strategy, in real life many businesses are struggling to be innovative. It doesn't mean that they can't come up with enough new ideas or that they don't have creative people on staff.
We have recalled some learning organization concepts and analyzed 3 innovation use cases in the two previous posts ( The learning innovator 1/ 3 and 2/3 ). I would like now to unfold a draft “learning innovator’s” role, and the way he could follow to modern innovation. The learning innovator Connecting the dots across experiences, continuously listen, learn and facilitate the learning of all members of the innovation team, so as to transform and develop the design potential to the full : this is the tough task of the “learning innovator”!
The Network of Projects – Driving Out Fear in the Post-digital Age | Thinkovate – from Intelligent ManagementIs there an organizational design that can replace the artificial barriers and fear of the traditional hierarchy? Digital cowboys, the new generation of talent described in Pekka Viljakainen’s book ‘No Fear’ , reject the form and values of the traditional organization. We continue our series in response to Pekka’s invitation to outline how we at Intelligent Management would tackle driving out fear in the post-digital age. Traditionally, when we translate the hierarchy into a company structure it resembles the well-known pyramid below. While this shape is perfect for those concerned with power games and personal success, it does not satisfy the network and collaboration-based values of Digital Cowboys, nor does it optimize achieving the goal of the organization.
Innovation has always mattered in economic development. But simply increasing spending on creating knowledge may not be the answer – we need to look at the whole system through which such knowledge translates to value creation. In a context where close to $1trillion/year is spent globally on R&D and where even the largest firms are moving towards ‘open innovation’ models this old question can benefit from a freshlook. This project explores the implications of the changing 21 st century context of networked, global and increasingly open innovation – a world in which knowledge flows become as important as knowledge creation. It involves a network of 5 UK universities – Cambridge, Cranfield, Imperial College, Liverpool and Loughborough working with the ESRC/EPSRC’s Advanced Institute for Management Research (AIM). The research covers 4 key questions:
This is the second of a two-part post on Adrian Ott's insightful and very practical book "The 24-Hour Customer" Innovation.net: What are some of the key insights you can share from the book? Adrian Ott:
