Tip: 10 Red Flags for Innovation
Roland Spijker
Interesting statement for discussion in Business Week:
"There's no surefire way to guarantee success in innovation".
Stefan Lindegaard offers 10 helpful suggestions or common pitfalls to avoid." Very recognizable I think:
The lack of an innovation strategy
No definition of innovation
Too much focus on internal capabilities
Too much focus on open innovation
Internal silos are too firmly ingrained
Too much focus on ideas and too little focus on people
Lack of a strong networking culture
Innovation efforts focus on technology or products
It's all about the usual suspects
Executives and innovation leaders underestimate the speed of change
The article also includes a link to a "ten types of innovation" framework I never saw before.
