The 12 Masters of Innovation - Perspectives, Slideshare, Harvard Business Review

The 12 Masters of Innovation - Perspectives, Slideshare, Harvard Business Review | "IN-novation" | Scoop.it

Worth a good look on leadership in innovation.

 

Some of who are listed include these educators:

 

Steve Blank, a seasoned entrepreneur who lectures at Berkeley and Stanford

His most important innovation lesson:

A startup is a "temporary organization searching for a repeatable and scalable business model"—a structured search process maximizes your chances of success. If you read one book, read: The Four Steps to the Epiphany (Cafepress.com, 2005)

 

Clayton Christensen, Harvard Business School professor and Innosight co-founder.
His most important innovation lesson:

Doing everything right can leave a successful organization susceptible to attack from a disruptive innovator who changes the game with a simple, accessible, or affordable solution. If you read one book, read: The Innovator's Solution (with Michael Raynor; Harvard Business Review Press, 2003)

 

Peter Drucker, legendary management guru and long-time professor at the Claremont Graduate University His most important innovation lesson: "The customer rarely buys what the company thinks it is selling him." Companies need to take a customer-first perspective to succeed with innovation. If you read one book, read: Innovation and Entrepreneurship (originally published in 1985)

Why Innovation Dies - A University Example of Structure Gone Bad - Forbes

Why Innovation Dies - A University Example of Structure Gone Bad - Forbes | "IN-novation" | Scoop.it

The classic mistakes made in dealing with disruption are here:  a new administrative lead role (a dean),  policy teams, committees, and implementation plan.

 

"...the minute the memo started talking about a Policy Team developing detailed implementation plans, it was all over."

 

Have you been there?  How did it turn out for you?


...Any possibility for innovation dies when a company forms a committee for an “overarching strategy.”

 

This insightful article by Steve Blank, mirrors what's I've read about and seen time and time again in decisive actions taken by executives and in large institutions.

 

Excerpted:

 

Lessons Learned

Innovation in New Markets do not come from “overarching strategies” It comes out of opportunity, chaos and rapid experimentation Solutions are found by betting on a portfolio of low-cost experiments The road for innovation does not go through committee

One useful purpose a university committee could have had was figuring out what the goal of going online was.  [The example in the article is education based.]

...it is so complex that figuring out the one possible path to a correct solution is computationally incalculable.

...the path to implementing online education is not known. In fact, it’s not a solvable problem by committee, regardless of how many smart people in the room. It is a “NP complete” problem – it is so complex that figuring out the one possible path to a correct solution is computationally incalculable.

 

By:  Steve Blank, author, teacher of entrepreneurship and consultant who has reshaped how startups are created. He is coauthor of the recently published, The Startup Owner’s Manual (K&S Ranch, 2012).
