How innovation really happens Innovation does not happen in isolation It requires a collaborative effort combining diverse perspectives It is not possible to anticipate the value of new ideas You need to generate many ideas and let them build on each other Ideas come from 1. the employees 2. partners 3. customers Connect many minds from in your organization and beyond Photo credit: Micah.

2. Why Large Organizations Fail at Innovation
As an organizations grow, specialization and barriers disconnect the workforce R&D Production Marketing & Sales
…and the focus shifts from innovation and value creation to internal efficiency Outside-in thinking Inside-out thinking
Too much focus is put on optimizing highly repeatable processes Process optimization dominate improvement initiatives, still knowledge work is more than 50% of the work in a modern business. Processes do a poor job of highlighting the how employees get things done across processes and hierarchies. McKinzey Quartely (2006): Mapping the value of employee collaboration.
There’s no time to innovate – to think, to reflect, to dream or to stimulate creativity
I will innovate, I just need to… Spend time on administrative tasks, attend pointless meetings, please my boss by reporting KPIs no one really cares about, search for information and people without finding anything, get involved in internal politics, recreate documents other people have already written before, randomly add people as CC recipients to my emails (to cover my back), act defensively to kill some initiatives, waste time and energy…
Engagement drives innovation …simply work harder and provide greater ideas Engaged employees… …look for new ways of adding value to work …find opportunities and follows through Source: London Business school (2013): Engagement and Innovation Photo credit: Morgan Sessions
…and when it decreases, so does innovation Higher absence Low employee engagement Less innovation Less motivation

” Recent research suggests that creativity is less an attribute of individuals than an emergent property that bubbles up within communities of people solving problems together. Jim Kim, President at The World Bank
” So the challenge for an organization is building a culture that encourages new ideas while providing a platform to reinforce collaboration. Jim Kim, President at The World Bank
