Free Your Innovation Culture

To foster an environment of smart risk-taking, leaders should use guardrails, not handcuffs.

As business leaders, we devote plenty of oxygen to the relationship between positive cultural change and innovation. Everybody wants happy, fulfilled employees who execute intelligently and create value. But when a culture is being reshaped, the journey is just as critical as the destination. Through my work with companies around the world, I can attest to the uncertainty caused by the change process—even in the most ideal circumstances. When leaders aren’t prepared for this interim phase, they may unwittingly find themselves hindering progress rather than supporting it.

The Business Case against Business Cases

Companies that rely on traditional project management methods could be getting an incomplete picture of their own vulnerabilities and opportunities.

I recently sat down with Winston to explore how companies need to think differently in these shifting circumstances. If a company is to survive, even thrive, in such turbulence, it must be willing to move past the significant (yet insufficient) projects that pay back quickly, he says. Companies must get radical, which means exempting some (though not all) investments from the requirements of the standard business case with a two-year ROI.

4 Tips for Walking Your Innovation Talk

To produce a climate of innovation that trickles down from the top, start by following this effective formula for leadership role modeling.

If innovation could be achieved simply through vision statements, press releases, or rally cries, we’d all be successful at it. But developing a strategy and mind-set that enables creative thinking to percolate takes much more work than that. At the core of every truly innovative organization is a leadership team that invests and actively participates in the process of coming up with new ideas. Instead of paying mere lip service to the concept, these leaders are role models who reflect the behaviors they want to see from their staff.
