“I hope I’m becoming more eccentric. More room in the brain.” Musician Tom Waits //

Being eccentric – choosing not to be more safely mundane – can help our creative thinking and courage. As psychologist Robert Ornstein, PhD has noted, “If you spend too much time being like everybody else, you decrease your chances of coming up with something different.”

The six rules for successful innovations

1- Innovations are only made by motivated employees in the company. Have you ever received a really good innovating idea from an unmotivated member of the staff? Motivation to change and improve is the starting point for any work in this arena.
2 - Working climate must be forgiving and understanding. This means that the working environment and hierarchy must allow mistakes and failures to happen and learn from them rather than penalise the employees and teams that made them.
3 - An innovation can only be driven from a true understanding of a problem or need. This is why successful products can only be defined & developed by the team that have a good knowledge of the customer and users of the product and service that the innovation concerns.
4 - Innovations are a consequence and evidence of motivated staff, good working climate and true understanding of the arena where the innovation is taking place.
5 - True innovations bring value to the receiver and the provider of the solution, it is a win/win relationship and if is done correctly will result in a long-term productive relationship.
6 - True innovations are done in iterations and will not be bang on the first time. This is the why the organisation need to support and learn from failures and unsuccessful improvements, projects and products. Only ideas that passed several iterations of improvements and variations will be sustainable in the current market place.
