Lean Transformation: Lean Change Part 1 - Combining Kotter and Running Lean

Lean Transformation: Lean Change Part 1 - Combining Kotter and Running Lean | Startups, Business & Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

The major problem with the existing method as it exists so far is that our minimum viable changes (MVC) lacked an overarching change lifecycle. We need a better approach to accelerate learning, an obvious one (in retrospect) is to make sure minimum viable changes are designed, socialized, and introduced in order of the highest risk.

Four principles for instilling cultures of creativity

The number of job descriptions that now list ‘entrepreneurial spirit’ amongst the list of characteristics applicants need to have seems to have skyrocketed. Really, they just want someone who can take the initiative and think outside the box.

But organisations don’t need to hire in new talent to find these qualities. Instilling a culture of creativity will go a long way to fulfilling this need for entrepreneurial talent.

The 5 Requirements of a Truly Innovative Company

No single innovation tool or method will deliver consistent, profitable breakthroughs, and neither will a hodgepodge of misaligned or poorly integrated practices. It takes a systematic approach to build a systemic capability—whether that is Amazon’s logistics prowess or the near-flawless service you receive as a guest at a Four Seasons hotel. So it is with innovation. Skills, tools, met­rics, processes, platforms, incentives, roles, and values all have to come together in one supercharged, all-wheel-drive, race-winning innovation machine.

So what are the parts of the innovation engine that most often get left out? Here’s our list of the top five:

Some good insights. In remarkable workplaces every day innovation is the norm and people are truly empowered like at Nordstrom, the US department store, where they have a rule "Use your best judgement at all times." and there are no other rules

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, May 4, 2015 6:06 AM

Great article in HBR by management guru Gary Hamel and Nancy Tennant (VP Whirlpool) on what they call the 'retooling of innovation' in organisations and what is needed to do so successfully.

 

Without spoiling the whole article, in their opinion the requirements include innovation ~ leaders and employees, definition, management process and metrics.

Emilio Ruano's curator insight, May 5, 2015 8:03 PM

Innovation is a culture that must be nourished. Buen artículo sobre las bases para que una empresa sea inovadora en su totalidad.
