Innovation - People and Strategy

Breakthroughs are not from the "Genius" but are from "Collective Knowledge" which is far more powerful than individual knowledge.

Everyone has a role in Innovation. You need to know who are your Creators, Connectors, Developers and Doers.

'Engage your people where their best contribution can be made and develop New Behaviours. These new Behaviours release new Knowledge. They are Exploration and Observation, Interaction and Collaboration and Experimentation and being willing to Fail‘Communities of Innovation' initiate innovation and the results come from the passion and trust between people. However, as you move from Creativity to Execution you must also move from a ‘Loose' to a ‘Tight' mode of behaviour. This change is vital.

A Strategy for Future Success

Innovation is driven by the Need of the Customer not by Technology - but the Customer thinks of today's needs not tomorrow's

Creativity, Discipline and Speed are essential for successful Innovation. - for 3000 ideas only one makes it - How do I pick that 'One'.

The perfect strategy is to find a market place where there is no competition, by creating a product that is unique and no one can copy it. Businesses forget about true product or service differentiation. This means Innovation.
