Who is an Ethnographer? by Idris Mootee

Ethnography is hot. Many are quick to claim that they do ethnography by observing people. It is like saying anyone who drives a taxi in NY is a screenwriter. Or anyone who knows how to operate a camera can be a photojournalist

Innovation Case: Creating A World Class Innovation Unit by Stefan Lindegaard

A global and well-respected company in a fast-growing industry wants to set up a new innovation unit. Their current innovation efforts are technology-driven but there is a growing understanding that innovation efforts need to focus beyond technology and R&D.

Leadership from the Inside Out — Part II by Gary Hamel

In my previous post, I introduced you to Drew Williams. For seven years Drew served as assistant vicar at St. Andrews, an Anglican parish in Chorleywood, England. When he arrived in 2003, Drew found a church that was big but not growing, and a congregation that was loyal but not energized. Mark Stibbe, head vicar at St. Andrews, challenged Drew to develop a plan that would change this.

Ten More Great Free e-Books for Innovators by Tim Kastelle

On Christmas Day last year, I posted a list of ten great free e-books for innovators. Today isn’t as festive, but I have another ten great free e-books that can help you become more innovative. Connecting ideas is the fundamental creative act in innovation, and one of the ways to do this is to read widely in order to gain exposure to a wide variety of ideas. This is a list of great resources that will help you do precisely that.

The Future of Customer Relationship Management by  Arie Goldshlager

I expect Customer Relationship Management and Marketing to move forward on the following several trajectories:

 1) From Value Extraction to Value Exchange to Value Co-Creation

As customers become more knowledgeable, informed and connected successful companies will find Value Exchange and Value Co-Creation Strategies more and more attractive.

Innovate What You Know? By Tim Kastelle

Here’s a topic I’ve been thinking about a fair bit recently – are we more innovative when we focus on solving our own problems? As Matt put it on the 37 Signals, there’s a strong argument for designing what you know:

One of the most illuminating comments I heard recently in a training program we offered was one participant’s realization that innovation, especially bringing a new idea to fruition, might require more than just product innovation.

The End of Open Innovation by Stefan Lindegaard

I had an interesting session in Sao Paulo, Brazil yesterday when a group of about 40 people listened to my talk based on my book, The Open Innovation Revolution.

3 Ways to Think Like a Designer by Open Forum

It has become apparent to me through comments, questions and work with clients that many business owners and operators believe design-based innovation, aka design thinking, is limited to products… that services and processes and web operations don’t really lend themselves to the discipline of design thinking, beyond perhaps the aesthetics of “making pretty.”

Amazing!

Incremental or adaptive but innovation.

When companies look for a place in the sun, in a competitive market, one of the challenges that they can embrace is to implement a policy towards incremental innovation.

This attitude allows the maintenance of an investment structure and leverage the organization to its overall objectives.

The path can be given through incremental innovation and adaptation. This also means that not only by adding elements or applications that manage innovative results.

Often it is by subtracting that we innovate products more accessible and easy to use.

It is the path of “amazing and inexpensive modification.”

To do so, to follow this path, the organization should be clear that they need:

-      A commitment from the highest levels in the organization. Top management must be the engine of innovation, by establishing a plan of action and introducing initiatives.

-      The development of internal and external networks. The proliferation of partnerships and seeking different viewpoints and expertise.

-      The strengthening of innovation culture. This needs to become an integral part of business processes.

-      Measurement of innovation initiatives. Depending on target goals must be provided with the tools available to encourage innovation.

Hutch Carpenter, no blog SPIGIT, States: “Targets are also good at mobilizing people. They are a shared experience and produces  behaviors, both cooperative and competitive.

The challenge is to define goals of innovation that will extend to the ingenuity of workers, without causing breakage. The aim should give a good hard push to a capacity for innovation of each. But that should not be perceived as a ridiculous challenge.

Consider two things in the approach to setting targets:

  1. Leverage key business processes in setting goals.
  2. The objectives are concrete and relevant to individuals working in different groups. “

 

Stll talking about targets on innovation, Peter Drucker said, “The purpose of innovation is the purpose for which a company makes its operational definition of “our business should be.”

The problem in setting goals for innovation is to measure the impact and relative importance of various innovations.

How can we determine what will bring more benefits to the organization?

Should it be trough a series of small incremental innovations or a breakthrough?

We know that in recent years, open innovation has become increasingly important, although there is still a good dose of fear, prejudice and even adverse political orientations.

Open Innovation enables companies to be able to respond quickly and flexibly, adapting to changes in the environment to remain competitive and this approach could fit companies objectives.

For example, in openiinovation.eu, we can read: ” through cooperation with innovative entrepreneurs or with universities in order to come to new innovations or through the use of venture capital to bring new technologies, that do not fit the current strategy, to the market externally. Managers of European companies are increasingly discovering open innovation as a major challenge to speed up their innovation process and to improve the innovation based growth strategies. Nevertheless, there is still a long way to go. Open innovation is not yet fully developed as a new management practice to spur innovation in European companies and many firms are still struggling with the appropriate implementation of it.”

As can be seen, there is still an environment within organizations that do not facilitate the development of new initiatives. The definition of objectives and establish goals in innovation, supports the promotion of new management practices, because the leaders pushing for new challenges.

A viable alternative for organizations is, given the risk inherent in innovative activity improve the chances of successfully pursuing multiple parallel objectives.

The innovation is based on many sources of ideas and maybe that is why today I removed the twitter this expression:

- “Great conversations around open innovation. Industry is really getting it. ”

Hopefully yes!

 

 

Objectivos em Inovação

Surpreendente!

Incremental ou adaptativa mas inovação.

Quando as empresas procuram um lugar ao Sol, num mercado competitivo, um dos desafios que podem abraçar é a implementação de uma política orientada para a inovação incremental.

Esta atitude permite a manutenção de uma estrutura de investimento e alavanca a organização para os seus objectivos globais.

O caminho pode ser dado através de inovação incremental e adaptativa. Isto significa também que não é só através da adição de elementos ou aplicações que se conseguem resultados inovadores.

Muitas vezes é através da subtracção que se inova tornado os produtos mais acessíveis e com facilidade de uso.

È o caminho das “surpreendentes e baratas modificações”.

Para isso, para seguir esse caminho, na organização deve estar bem claro que é necessário:

Um compromisso dos níveis mais altos na organização. A gestão de topo precisa ser o motor da inovação, através do estabelecimento de um plano de acção e introdução das iniciativas.

O desenvolvimento de redes internas e externas. A multiplicação de parcerias e a busca de diferentes pontos de vista e conhecimentos.

O fortalecimento da cultura de inovação. Este precisa de se tornar uma parte integral dos processos da empresa.

A medição de iniciativas de inovação. Em função de objectivos alvo devem ser fornecidas as ferramentas disponíveis para incentivar a inovação.

Hutch Carpenter, no blog SPIGIT, refere: “Objectivos também são bons para mobilizar as pessoas. São uma experiência compartilhada, e provocam comportamentos, tanto cooperativo como competitivo.

O desafio é definir metas de inovação, que se estenderão à inventividade dos trabalhadores, sem causar quebras. O objectivo deve dar um bom e duro empurrão para uma capacidade de inovação de cada um. Mas isso não deve ser sentido como um desafio ridículo.

Considere duas coisas na abordagem ao estabelecimento de objectivos:

  1. Alavancar os principais processos da empresa no estabelecimento de metas.
  2. Os objectivos são concretos e relevantes para os indivíduos que trabalham em diferentes grupos.”

 

Ainda a propósito dos objectivos em inovação, Peter Drucker disse, “O objectivo da inovação é o objectivo pelo qual uma empresa faz a sua definição operacional de “o nosso negócio deve ser.”

O problema na definição de objectivos de inovação é medir o impacto e a importância relativa das diversas inovações.

Como poderemos verificar o que trará mais vantagens à organização?

Uma série de pequenas inovações incrementais ou uma grande descoberta?

Sabemos que nos últimos anos, a inovação aberta se tornou cada vez mais importante, apesar de ainda haver uma boa dose de receios, preconceitos e até orientações políticas adversas.

A inovação aberta permite que as empresas sejam capazes de responder de forma rápida e flexível, adaptando-se, às mudanças no ambiente para se manterem competitivas.

Por exemplo, em openiinovation.eu, pode ler-se: “Através da cooperação com empresários inovadores ou com as universidades, a fim de chegar a novas inovações ou através da utilização de capital de risco para trazer novas tecnologias, que não se encaixam na estratégia actual, para o mercado externo. Gestores de empresas europeias estão descobrindo cada vez mais a inovação aberta como um grande desafio para acelerar o seu processo de inovação e melhorar a inovação de estratégias de crescimento. No entanto, há ainda um longo caminho a percorrer. Inovação aberta ainda não está totalmente desenvolvida como uma nova prática de gestão para estimular a inovação nas empresas europeias e muitas empresas ainda estão lutando com a aplicação adequada do mesmo.”

Como se verifica, existe ainda uma ambiente dentro das organizações que não facilita o desenvolvimento de novas iniciativas. A definição de objectivos e estabelecimento de metas em inovação, é favorável à dinamização de novas práticas de gestão, pois empurra as lideranças para novos desafios.

Uma alternativa viável para as organizações é, dado o risco inerente à actividade inovativa, melhorar as hipóteses de sucesso perseguindo múltiplos objectivos paralelos.

A inovação baseia-se em muitas fontes de ideias e talvez por isso hoje retirei do twitter esta expressão – “Great conversations around open innovation. Industry is really getting it.”

Esperemos que sim!

Call for Visionaries! Help Make the Future of Innovation Open and Global – by Stefan Lindegaard – 15inno

“Can you imagine a global network of people who believe the future of innovation is open and global?

Can you imagine a global network based on regional chapters that helps increase the general awareness of open innovation and connects the people and companies – virtually and physically – that turn open innovation into reality?”

Putting in the Hours – by Tim Kastelle – Innovation Leadership Network

“We can’t assume that they already know how great our idea is, or that the value in it is self-evident. This is a particularly important lesson if we are trying to cross domains. If you are a lab scientist trying to commercialise your great discovery, out in business your reputation starts at 0, no matter how much reknown you’re held in as a scientist.”

A Small Attempt to Model Organizational Evolution – by Thierry de Baillon – Sonnez en cas d’absence

“Last few months were, for me, pretty insightful. I tried to spread and nurture some ideas about organizations, collaboration and complexity, met people, chatted online with others, read, assisted or talked at events…  The last pebbles of wisdom came for The Age of Paradox, from Charles Handy, whose S-curve metaphor quasi magically fitted my intuitions. Little by little, I have now built a somehow practical model of organizational maturity which drastically shows the need for enterprise to step into the 2.0 world.”

 

Innovation is a habit – by Jorge Barba – Game-Changer

“Act different to think different. Easier said than done right? The truth is we’ve already been-there-done-that when we were kids, we just forget we did it. How is this possible?

“I hadn’t seen my artist friend in nearly a year, nor was I even sure he was still painting.

Suddenly he led me to one large 80” x 64” canvas of swirling brush strokes that is his style. “This one is for you,” he announced, “for all the help you’ve given me with the web site.”

“Story: GE Healthcare sells sophisticated medical imaging devices around the world. Historically, they have sold these high-end machines in emerging economies like India. But only 10% of Indian hospitals can afford a $10,000 ECG machine. Reaching the other 90% of the market takes more than simply cutting a few costs. It requires radical innovation and an in-depth understanding of local conditions.”

 

WHAT, HOW & WHY? – by   Nicolae Halmaghi – Design Thinking Exchange

“What Exactly is Design Thinking?

What Does it Do?

How and Why Does it Create Value?

At this point it is a losing battle trying to find a unified voice about what Design Thinking does, or means. Most definitions are confusing, cumbersome, incomplete, make little sense, or have purely and simply nothing to do with Design Thinking. There is a big disconnect between the way the design community feels and interprets DT and the way business strategists define it. As more and more consultancies want to take advantage of the media attention dedicated to DT, it is likely that unless a common definition is adopted soon, the term will be polluted permanently.”

We generally have a disconnect between the person, business, or agency that we want to be and the reality of who or what we are today.  This disconnect is a great thing, an opportunity for growth an opportunity for improvement.  However, when not understood, it is also a major pain point, something that leads your customers, your citizens, to lack faith in your words and actions.

A inovação baseia-se em muitas fontes de ideias.

Criatividade e conhecimento.

As fontes de conhecimento, nas organizações, devem ser alargadas, e isso faz-se também com inovação aberta. Também no conhecimento é possível estabelecer metas e objectivos de forma a alavancar a eficácia inovativa e consequentemente o desenvolvimento global da organização.

“Os resultados empíricos sugerem que os horizontes mais amplos em relação aos objectivos de inovação e fontes de conhecimento estão associados com o sucesso da inovação. Não encontramos retornos diminuindo a amplitude de objectivos de inovação, o que sugere que as empresas tendem a procurar demasiado restritivamente. Interpretamos estes resultados à luz dos conhecidos preconceitos cognitivos para busca em domínios relativamente familiar.” – Interscience

Dentro das organizações e seguindo uma política de estabelecimento de metas e objectivos, é possível, não só criar um saudável nível de competitividade entre as várias equipas, como também desenhar o todo do processo inovativo.

São vários os aspectos que devem convergir para o sucesso na organização: Abertura, objectivos, medidas, incremental e adaptativo e abertura.
