Creating Innovation is a lot like building a high rise tower. The deeper the foundations, the higher the building can go. An Innovation foundation involves three key stages.
Research beyond your industry. Looking beyond what you normally do provides you with some clues for inspiration that will be clearly a market leader in your industry vs. just an imitation of a competitors a. The wider you research the more likely the fresh idea will come.
Inspiration often comes from looking in new areas, but inspiration also comes from providing brain teasing challenges. Create innovative challenges for your team- they will provide more reward than you can imagine.
Ensure your Innovation Architect has the elements in the Innovation Plan they create for your organisation. A Professional Innovation Speaker should always have a good foundation to work from.
