Continuous disruption requires Continuous Innovation Steve Blank


Slide 11

Continuous disruption requires Continuous Innovation Steve Blank what’s this mean? ?


Slide 12

Continuous disruption requires Continuous Innovation Steve Blank ? what’s this mean? External Disruption U.S. Navy assumed carriers would always defend the Western Pacific Asymmetric warfare = “Carrier-killer ICBMs” = disruption


Slide 13

Continuous disruption requires Continuous Innovation Steve Blank ? what’s this mean? Internal Disruption The military built encryption hardware to protect classified data Waterfall development process and long device lifecycle Now they post software that enable their customers to implement their own solutions Using commercial off-the-shelf software broke the traditional model = Disruption

The Problem


Slide 20

Agencies Start as Innovation Engines New/Disruptive Innovation Disruptive Business Model Innovation Better/faster/cheaper Innovation requires no restrictions by plans, procedures or processes Success = finding a repeatable and scalable business model Grows and scales Steve Blank Continuous Innovation


Slide 21

Success Creates “Debt” Success creates Technical debt Organizational debt Steve Blank New/Disruptive Innovation


Slide 22

Type of Innovation Innovation Becomes Execution Process Execution Disruptive Innovation Success means scale Scale requires plans, procedures, processes, incentives, KPI’s Innovation becomes execution Refactoring Group Steve Blank Continuous Innovation


Slide 23

Type of Innovation Innovators Leave or Start New Initiatives Process Execution Disruptive Innovation Founders/early employees don’t fit in execution organizations Short-sighted companies: innovators leave Far-sighted companies: they start the next cycle of innovation Refactoring Group Steve Blank Continuous Innovation Disruptive Innovation

Slide 47

Disruptive Innovation Continuous Innovation Lean Means Getting Out of Your Office Horizon 2 Horizon 3 Speed & Urgency Lean Steve Blank If you’re not talking to 10’s of customers, it’s not lean If you’re not building iterative and incremental minimum viable products, it’s not lean


Slide 48

Horizon 3 Horizon 3 Needs To Leave Home Process Innovation Continuous Innovation Disruptive Innovation Physically separate from operating divisions Company Incubator, etc Their own plans, procedures, policies, incentives and KPI’s They operate with speed and urgency Goal is to find a repeatable and scalable mission model Steve Blank

Slide 56

“Get to Yes” Corporate support of Innovation in All 3 Horizons Process Innovation Refactoring Group Company support orgs Steve Blank Task Support Organizations to work inside Horizon 2/3 Assign Finance, Legal, HR, etc. Job is helping all Horizon projects “get to yes” leverage existing assets and capabilities is critical Disruptive Innovation


Slide 57

Success Creates “Debt” Success creates Technical debt Organizational debt Steve Blank New/Disruptive Innovation


Slide 58

Horizon 3 Refactoring is an Integral Part of Innovation Process Innovation Disruptive Innovation Horizon 3 takes shortcuts Technical shortcuts add up and become what is called Technical debt People/process shortcuts are Organizational debt Refactoring “cleans up” debt by restructuring it You need a process organization dedicated to refactoring Horizon 3 projects Refactoring Group Steve Blank Horizon 1


Slide 59

Company Incentives & Goals In support of Innovation in All 3 Horizons Disruptive Innovation Steve Blank Companies operate on goals and incentives Incent mavericks, incent support, incent adoption Process Innovation Refactoring Group Company support orgs


Slide 60

Company Incentives & Goals In support of Innovation in All 3 Horizons Disruptive Innovation Steve Blank Company operates on goals and incentives Incent mavericks, incent support, incent adoption If there are no Horizon 2/3 incentives in the company then there is no real commitment to innovation Process Innovation Refactoring Group Company support orgs


Slide 61

Agency Incentives & Goals In support of Innovation in All 3 Horizons Disruptive Innovation Steve Blank Company operates on goals and incentives Incent mavericks, incent support, incent adoption If supporting Horizon 2/3 is not part of Company goals & incentives then there is no real commitment to innovation Process Innovation Refactoring Group Company support orgs Positive – Financial Awards, Performance Bonuses, & Honorary Awards Negative – You can lose product funding


Slide 62

Type of Innovation Innovation Becomes Execution Horizon 1 Adopts Horizon 2 & 3 Process Execution Steve Blank Horizon 3 support orgs Refactoring Group Continuous Innovation Success means scale Scale requires plans, KPI’s procedures, processes, incentives Innovation becomes execution Disruptive Innovation Horizon 2 Horizon 3 Horizon 1


Slide 63

Why Innovation Fails


Slide 64

Shiny Objects Technical founder enamored with new tech (shiny object) Abandons core Horizon 1 business Treats Horizon 1 as the “old guys who don’t get it” Company is still dependent on Horizon 1 until new tech gets adopted Apple and the Mac Research In Motion and QNX Solution: Can’t demoralize current product team Need transition plan Make sure that $’s, people, and infrastructure are in place to cross the Tech Transfer “Valley of Death”


Slide 65

Leadership is Focused on Now Leadership managing agency for current mission Not investing for the long term CEO and/or mgmt incentives all on current mission and goals No incentives for CEO or mgmt on innovation for Horizon 2 or 3 Solution: Need a Corporate Chief Innovation Officer who understand innovation Need Chief Innovation Officers in all Divisions


Slide 66

Innovation Is a Buzzword Stop using it to describe everything Solution: Use the Horizon 1, 2 & 3 metaphor Understand that Incubators, Cafe’s, Shark Tanks, etc. are just the innovation vehicles Lean is the methodology for acceleration I-Corps is the way to implement it


Slide 67

Failure is Career Retarding A failed project is to be avoided at all costs Projects/programs are expensive (years, lots of $’s and people) In a Lean organization failure is part of the process It’s acceptable because failures are MVPs Very low cost Happens Rapidly It’s how we get to 50x Pivoting from a failure gets us new learning


Slide 68

Horizon 1 Uses “Innovation” to Reinvent What Works Loses sight that the goal is to move forward, not reinvent what works Rebuilds work already done by others and already available as a service Doesn’t team with others Build competing architectures Use different source repositories, different standards, different ticketing systems, etc Fundamental Problems: Confusion about the goal of innovation in Horizon 1


Slide 69

Innovation Has No Incentives No divisional incentives for Horizon 3 No divisional or Senior-level job description for Horizon 3 No strategy/tactics for integration of Horizon 3 into operating divisions Solution: Develop meaningful incentives for Horizon 3 Develop written job description for Horizon 3 support Develop strategy/tactics for integration of Horizon 3 into the rest of the organization


Slide 70

Bottleneck: The Intransigent Middle Turning Go into No Top of the organization says, “Do it” Bottom of the organization (innovators) ready to go Middle management kills it Actively Sabotage Benign Neglect Innovation programs die Steve Blank Innovation Groups Ready Middle Mgmt Barrier Executive Buy-In GO NO


Slide 71

Why the Bottleneck? Threat Power, ownership, turf, prestige, pay Confused Job spec’s are still the same No training on how to support, participate No incentives to change behavior No penalty for ignoring it Steve Blank


Slide 72

Removing the Bottleneck Prove that this can work Then: Communicate, communicate, communicate Big idea – shared goal/mission Strategy – big picture of how the pieces work together Tactical implementation Update job specs to include innovation support Change incentives to include innovation support Shower those who came before with appreciation Support those who try and fail and try again Steve Blank


Slide 73

Sales Freezes Talking to Customers Sales says “no one can talk to our customers” Valid concern of pitching new capabilities in place of ones that exist Belief that they understand all the users needs But Customer Discovery is not pitching new products It’s about understanding user problems/needs and how they use current solutions Almost impossible for a single individual to predict all of users needs now and the future Steve Blank


Slide 74

Engineering Is Not Talking to Customers Engineering believes innovation is about technology Just talks to the Subject Matter Expert, or.. To the same small group of users they’ve talked to for the past 5 years They’re not talking to the total available market, and so they miss solving the bigger problems Solution: Focus the organization on understanding customer problems Focus on solving current or future problems Steve Blank


Slide 75

What We Now Know


Slide 76

Horizon 2/3 Projects Are Not Smaller Versions of Horizon 1


Slide 77

Startups Are Not Smaller Versions of Large Companies Horizon 1 Executes Known Business Models


Slide 78

Startups Are Not Smaller Versions of Agencies Horizon 2/3 Search for Unknown Business Models


Slide 79

We Can Build a Process to Search Before we Execute


Slide 80

Lean Innovation Delivers Products and Services that users want and need in a fraction of the time


Slide 81

Lean Works for Everyone Gov’t Agencies, Corporations, Startups


Slide 82

Adopted by the NSF (National Science Foundation) 550+ teams, 1,700+ team members Taught by 50 NSF Sponsored Universities

3. Build Incrementally & Iteratively Frame Hypotheses Test Hypotheses Build the product incrementally & Iteratively Business Model Customer Development Agile Engineering ? ? ?


Slide 98

The Minimum Viable Product (MVP) Smallest feature set that gets you the most … - learning, feedback, failure, orders, … - incremental and iterative It is not a prototype It is not a deployable version with the fewest features It is whatever enables us to validate/invalidate a stated hypothesis Early on it may be a drawing, a slide, a wireframe, clickable workflow, etc…


Slide 99

The Pivot Definition: A substantive change to one or more of the business model canvas components Iteration without crisis Fast, agile and opportunistic Weeks and $100K


Slide 100

Pivot Cycle Time Matters Speed of cycle minimizes cash needs Minimum feature set speeds up cycle time Near instantaneous customer feedback drives feature set Customer Discovery Customer Validation Company Building Customer Creation Execution Search Pivot

Slide 103

How to Start an Innovation Engine- 0 Reorganize around Mission + Innovation Each Horizon 1 division needs a Chief Innovation Officer Drives Continuous Innovation Finds Horizon 2 opportunities Starts and Funds 10x the new initiatives for MVP’s Each Company needs a deputy director of Innovation Runs/funds Horizon 3 incubators with I-Corps methodology Runs open innovation incubators Provides staff and infrastructure support for Divisional Innovation Steve Blank


Slide 104

How to Start an Innovation Engine- 1 Identify Lean Innovation Vehicles R&D, Engineering, Incubators, Cafe’s, Accelerators, Hackathons, Open Innovation, etc. Adopt Lean Product Development: Digital Services Playbook.. Adopt Lean Metrics: Hypotheses tested, Pivots, IRL, TRL, … Adopt Lean Funding and acquisition: TechFar .. Adopt Lean Pedagogy: Lean LaunchPad/I-Corps Use Lean Mgmt processes Agree how to “Hand-off” and “scale” small efforts (hard) Develop organizational processes/procedures/incentives that support innovation (hard) Steve Blank


Slide 105

Start an Innovation Engine - 2 Educate the company on Innovation Communicate goals Communicate process (hard) Everyone expects detailed specs like Horizon 1 - bad Consolidate innovation efforts (hard) Recruit teams (3-4 people) Recruit mentors - one per team (hard) Get divisional cooperation (hard) Train the Trainers Steve Blank


Slide 106

Start an Innovation Engine- 3 Design Programs Emphasis on speed, urgency, evidence, pivots 1? day “Train-the-Trainers” 6/8-week “I-Corps” programs Investments and adoption of H1 and H2 by divisions Run Programs Steve Blank


Slide 107

Start an Innovation Engine - 4 Rally around a mission not theory Pick something everyone agrees is a good goal and congruent with the company’s mission Legitimatize the need for exploration and exploitation For example, for a cybersecurity software company: “Advance and promote real-time security to protect information and outmaneuver hackers” Steve Blank


Slide 108

Start an Innovation Engine -5 Leadership that is capable of managing the issues associated with multiple simultaneous Horizons Resource allocation Incentives Etc. Needs to balance a culture of risk taking, speed = mitigation, quick to opportunities, receptive to innovation Steve Blank


Slide 109

Summary Lean Innovation Management is not about efficiency and innovation It’s about developing the capabilities necessary to offset competitors who may have equal or better technologies It’s how to integrate, build, and reconfigure internal and external competencies to address rapidly changing environments It’s about survival in the 21st Century
