Most companies sabotage their own innovation processes without meaning to. I've noticed five tell-tale signs of this syndrome, which I recently described during a talk to the Columbia Media Forum. 1. Innovation is episodic.

Firms need to perpetually innovate, here are some things to avoid!
Short answer: It's more than just a billiards table and free soda. Design buffs weigh in on how to build a creative, collaborative, and innovative workspace.
Laurence Dubuc's insight:
Working in a raw environment: certainly it is nice to be surrounded by vintage furniture, but it gives employees the feeling they're building something. The workplace has to be seen like a second home.
Despite a substantial body of research showing that giving employees more autonomy and control leads to productivity growth, the UK in the last decade has been moving in the opposite direction.
Oxford professor Duncan Gallie and his colleagues found strong evidence of declining ‘task discretion’ and a significant reduction in autonomy in UK jobs.
Similarly, researchers Michael White and Stephen Hill suggest that while employees may have more freedom to decide how they deliver their targets, employers operate more rigorous regimes of accountability through sophisticated performance management systems and extensive surveillance.
Both studies show some workers have less control in their jobs than a decade ago, and that the use of IT in the workplace is one of the key areas for the erosion of autonomy.
