Paint a clear picture – know what you want and set clear goals to get there. Innovation needs a purpose.
Create real value – ensure that your efforts address a real need.
Create an enabling environment. No-one can go at it alone. Allow for creativity, make it happen and expect it from people.
Collaborate, lobby, empower, create the right structures and fund winning initiatives.
Identify the good ideas – Use a powerful, clear and effective process to filter ideas and identify the good ones for implementation.
Involve people, encourage teamwork and recognise efforts.
Establish ownership. Innovation needs to be someone’s responsibility for it to be effectively managed and sustained.
