Create the conditions to facilitate innovation

Create the conditions to facilitate innovation | Innovation really matters | Scoop.it
One of the most serious challenges that a company faces, particularly a forward-looking company, is to know how to manage innovation as the organization evolves.

Facilitate innovation management is no easy task, especially when we are in a process of maturation or development of enterprises.

The facilitator is someone who helps a group of people to understand their common goals and helps them to plan to achieve, without taking a particular position in the discussion.

The role of an effective facilitator is closely linked with the environment (context) where he will conduct its activity.

Chris Chan's curator insight, March 21, 2013 10:04 AM

What do you recommend startups do to innovate without a big budget?

Try to make your idea as clear as possible from the beginning. It will change along the way, but keep its primary story straightforward and focused, rather than trying to solve a multitude of issues. Examine your own capabilities: what you do well and what you don’t. Then look for partners who do well what you do not. You will save a lot of time and effort later in the game if you just stop spinning your wheels trying to do things that you are not equipped to do. Most important, do your financial analysis and planning right at the outset and keep revising along the way. You want to avoid the surprise of your dream not being viable.

The Open Innovation Integrator

The Open Innovation Integrator | Innovation really matters | Scoop.it
Open Innovation seeks to expand a company’s innovation possibilities by accessing ideas, technologies, products and even routes to market using external partners.

 


Choosing people as Open Innovation Integrators needs careful thought. They are often people with a classic “T” profile – a broad experience and knowledge allied to a depth of expertise in a small number of fields. They are excellent networkers, and possess the social skills and empathy to understand the human side of relationships. Quite often Technology Scouts are the best people to be the Open Innovation Integrators as they usually have a similar profile.
