Innovation is About Execution, Despite the Myths - Forbes

Innovation is About Execution, Despite the Myths - Forbes | Innovation & Institutions, Will it Blend? | Scoop.it

Most people think innovation is all about ideas, when in fact it is more about delivery, people, and process.

 

Vijay Govindarajan and Chris Trimble, in their book “The Other Side of Innovation: Solving the Execution Challenge” have done the best recent research on this subject.

 

For example:  Myth:  Effective innovation leaders are subversives fighting the system.

 

Fact:  Effective innovation leaders are not necessarily the biggest risk takers, mavericks, and rebels. The primary virtue of an effective innovation leader is humility. What you want is integration with real world operations.
