5 Factors and Adoption Rate Tools to Predict Change Success with your Innovation – VinJones

5 Factors and Adoption Rate Tools to Predict Change Success with your Innovation – VinJones | Innovation & Institutions, Will it Blend? | Scoop.it
The excerpted post below is part of a two part series that offers change and innovation adoption rate tools.


What I like about Kevin's 2-part series is that it is not about the unconvincing ROI, return on investment metric. It is about the powerful effect of stories, examples and case studies that inspire and "spark ...imagination.


His first post focuses on the five (5) factors to use to predict the rate of adoption. The second post offers tools and templates to give you an adoption rate measurement.

Contrary to popular belief, an ROI will not convince them. ...it is stories and examples and case studies which spark their imagination. ~ Kevin Jones, vinJones.com

Also keep in mind that change and innovation are quite different from each other. This is particularly highlighted in our two curation streams: Innovation in Institutions, Will it Blend? and the one you are reading, Change Leadership Watch.


We are also highlighting Kevin's tools on CMRsite.com, a non-partisan change management resources site.


Excerpts:


The Adoption Index
One of my favorite books is Diffusion of Innovations by Everett M. Rogers. Although this largely academic book was originally written in 1962, it hasn’t lost any of its usefulness. It explains why innovations and technologies are adopted, or not, and at what rate.


1)“Relative advantage is the degree to which an innovation is perceived as better than the idea it supersedes."


The degree of relative advantage may be measured in economic terms, but social prestige factors, convenience, and satisfaction are also important factors.”


2)“Compatibility is the degree to which an innovation is perceived as being consistent with the existing values, past experiences, and needs of potential adopters.


3)“Complexity is the degree to which an innovation is perceived as difficult to understand and use.”


Read the full post for all five factors and the link to part 2 of the series that offers adoption rate tools.

Can you Disrupt Your Own Culture Structure? | Four Key Innovation Contradictions

Can you Disrupt Your Own Culture Structure? | Four Key Innovation Contradictions | Innovation & Institutions, Will it Blend? | Scoop.it

Innovation is fraught with contradictions.  Is there room for innovation's natural contradictions in your organization culture?  


A handy indicator is looking at your organization's people policies (HR) as a quick capacity test. 


Four Key Innovation Contradictions excerpted, Innovation Excellence:


1) Innovation requires a business to embrace processes and methods that are far different from the efficient, effective processes that sustain short term profitability. Innovation creates new, risky, uncertain concepts that will pay off in quarters if not years.


2) While executives want innovation, they don’t want the disruption or investment strain required which creates dissonance in the teams that are actively trying to do interesting innovation work, and leads to confusion and then cynicism.


3) Transparency, visibility and commitment are key. Doing innovation work is tough, and doing it without the full support of the senior team, constantly demonstrated, means that many innovators have far fewer resources than they need.


4) The contradiction between what we TELL people to do and what we PAY people to do when we do nothing [or too little] to change how these individuals are evaluated, compensated and rewarded.
