HR’s Strategic Role in Innovation by Deb Mills-Scofield

Historically, HR has not played a very strategic role in innovation.  This needs to change.  HR needs to support the culture change to enable innovation; and the upcoming generation isn’t going to settle for an ‘administrative-only’ role.

On happiness and value innovation by JORGE BARBA

I’ve been thinking about and pounding you in this blog with the idea of not wasting people’s time (also see here). I found out two things today, one is that I’m not the only one thinking about it and second that recent research says that in order for people to be happy we like to spend a certain amount of time on some activities.

Why smaller companies should embrace open innovation by Stefan Lindegaard

 Open innovation at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) presents both great opportunities and great challenges. Forming open innovation relationships can give a growing enterprise access to resources that might normally are beyond their reach with the potential for greatly speeding up time to market.

How to Improve Your Innovation Metrics by Tim Kastelle

We’ve written a few posts criticising some of the more common innovation metrics in use, so I thought it would be smart to outline some ways that we can actually develop more effective metrics. Here’s a story that might help:

Reducing Workplace Toxins with Novelty that Transforms by Ellen Weber

We now know the brain lights to novelty in refreshing ways – not a bad recipe for cutting edge advances at work. We also see servers and software equipped with interactive programs that  engage more talent in teams. Imagine this merger of  brain-compatible research and user-friendly technology, as the quintessential tool to rescue workplaces trapped in rigid ruts.

Spend time with people who challenge your thinking by Paul Sloane

‘You are the average of the five people that you spend the most time with,’ says author Richard Koch. While this statement is not to be taken literally or mathematically it plainly contains a disturbingly large grain of truth. For most of us the people we choose to associate with reflect ourselves, our values, our backgrounds, our attitudes and our behaviours.

The Power of Meaning by Ralph-Christian Ohr

About one year ago, I started engaging in discussions on ‘innovation’ via Twitter. As a physicist, used to work in product/innovation management for technology-based companies, my understanding of innovation was: creating value for the customer by leveraging technology development. As innovation is accomplished by people for people – companies are eventually run by people – I had a suspicion, though, that human nature is likely to play an important role in the innovation process.

MinuteClinic’s Service Design Innovation by Andrea Meyer

Story: Some of the best innovations are brilliant in their after-the-fact simplicity. Take MinuteClinic.  We all know “an ounce of prevention…” yet most of us still don’t go to the doctor for preventative care because of the cumbersome process of a office visit: scheduling an appointment, taking time off work, waiting in the doctor’s office for unknown amounts of time, sitting in the midst of other hacking/sneezing people, and being unsure how much the visit will cost

The power of bringing in an outsider for #innovation by Jorge Barba

Nilofer Merchant, CEO of Rubicon Consulting, argues that if organizations want to be innovative they should stop hiring the same type of people just to meet the requirements of the job position:

It seems to me we ought to also know how to get diverse points of view into the system, because that is what allows us to see things from different angles and fundamentally shift our approach from seeing the problem the way it’s always been seen (and thus unsolved, one could presume) and see it afresh to create the shift in viewpoint that allows for a new creative act.

‘Oops! I’m deviating from the group; I have to do something about it!’ Rotterdam School  Via @ariegoldshlager

Rotterdam/Nijmegen, 15 January 2008 — A team of researchers from the Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University has conducted an unprecedented experiment that reveals what brain processes are involved in social conformism. It is a well-known fact that people have a tendency to adjust their opinions to those held by others

Biz 2.0: Orchestrated Improvisation by Paula Thornton

Reading Andy McAfee’s recent piece “IT’s Three Key Organizational Transformations”, spurred a personal thinking theme today. I was a bit disturbed (and disappointed) by what Andy seemed to miss in his thought — stuff that 2.0 thinking hinges on (but it wouldn’t be the first time, or likely the last).

Innovation & Correspondence Bias – Misunderstanding motivation misreads meaning by Andrew (Drew)

The more we learn about the individual and social psychology misunderstandings at play in organization life, specifically in the development of innovations, the harder it is to identify clear and unambiguous actions we can take to address them. We must become adept at inquiry, observation, exploration and reflection – any of which might be effectively preceded by the word “self”. Thankfully these are prerequisites for effective innovation which makes for some strong synergies if we can apply the skills effectively.

Observing – the Mother of All Discovery Skills by Yann Cramer Blogging Innovation

Observing is a critical skill for people willing to increase their innovation capability. It is critical because observing customers will reveal behavior patterns that they have unknowingly developed to compensate for some inconvenience that could be removed or for some unmet need to could be addressed more fully

How Leaders Can “Walk The Talk” for Innovation…    by Paul Williams

I list leadership engagement in the first spot on that list for a reason.  It is certainly the most important factor for innovation success within an organization.  Without true engagement by at least one executive leader (preferably all), innovation will never gain the traction it needs to be considered as a true business discipline, gain the resources it needs to succeed or develop the process depth required to make it effective, efficient and repeatable.


A Consultant’s Approach to Open Innovation by Stefan Lindegaard

What does a consultant focus on when having a first talk with a potential client looking for help on open innovation issues?

Let me share my thoughts on this. Perhaps other consultants – or someone from the client side – will share more insights on this.

Brand-Driven Innovation by Erik Roscam Abbing and Christa van Gessel –  via Arie Goldshlager

As the nature of innovation shifts from the application of new technology to the delivery of meaning and value, brand and design become critical resources, as well as partners, in the development of market-leading products and services. Erik Roscam Abbing and Christa van Gessel provide an overview and case studies of this process as it moves from “brand usability” to “innovation strategy” to “design strategy” to “touch-point orchestration.”

Think Like a Biologist to be a Better Manager by Tim Kastelle

The first Archaeopteryx fossil was found in 1861, and it now resides in the Natural History Museum in London. It was an important find – two years after the publication of The Origin of Species by Charles Darwin, Archaeopteryx was the rarest of fossils, and one that was quite useful for Darwin’s theory – an intermediate form. Archaeopteryx very clearly shows the transition from dinosaurs to birds.

Together We Innovate By Rob Cross, Andrew Hargadon, Salvatore Parise and Robert J. Thomas


WHEN it comes to innovation, the myth of the lone genius dies hard.
Most companies continue to assume that innovation comes from that individual genius, or, at best, small, sequestered teams that vanish from sight and then return with big ideas. But the truth is most innovations are created through networks — groups of people working in concert.

The Myths About Design Thinking And How You Can Find Out If You Are Truly An Integrative Thinker. Take The Test Now. And Yes, We Are Hiring! by Idris Mootee

These days I am getting a little bothered with the phrase “design thinking”. There is a lot causal misuse but the phrase has gained popularity and currency because it is new, it gives designers new status and it helps to push design firm upstream and hopefully they can solve bigger problems with design ideas.


Innovation Strategies Combined by By  Frank T. Rothaermel and Andrew M. Hess

Continuous innovation is the engine that drives highly successful companies such as Apple, General Electric, Google, Honda, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, Sony, Tata group and many others. Innovation is an especially potent competitive weapon in tough economic times because it allows companies to redefine the marketplace in their favor and achieve much-needed growth

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.”

In the past…

The Era of Open Innovation

By Henry W. Chesbrough

“In the past, internal R&D was a valuable strategic asset, even a formidable barrier to entry by competitors in many markets. Only large corporations like DuPont, IBM and AT&T could compete by doing the most R&D in their respective industries (and subsequently reaping most of the profits as well). Rivals who sought to unseat those powerhouses had to ante up considerable resources to create their own labs, if they were to have any chance of succeeding. These days, however, the leading industrial enterprises of the past have been encountering remarkably strong competition from many upstarts. Surprisingly, these newcomers conduct little or no basic research on their own, but instead get new ideas to market through a different process.”


Only two days ago you could read:


CFP: European Journal of Innovation Management

EJIM Special Issue on Open Innovation – March 17, 2010

According to Henry Chesbrough “Open Innovation is the use of purposive inflows and outflows of knowledge to accelerate internal innovation, and expand the markets for external use of innovation”. Several heterogeneous phenomena are compatible with such a broad definition and have all been labelled Open Innovation: Intellectual Property markets with or without the presence of intermediaries, crowdsourcing and lead user innovation, academic and company spin-offs, and collaborative research projects. The external sourcing and the external commercialization of innovation are very different practices as well.

To what extent these phenomena can be studied as one?


Meanwhile some observations were made:


Open information / Intellectual property / Information trading – Eric von Hippel

“Informal” know-how trading is the extensive exchange of proprietary know-how by informal networks of process engineers in rival (and non-rival) firms. I have observed such know-how trading networks to be very active in the US steel minimill industry and elsewhere, and they appear to represent a novel form of cooperative R&D.
When one examines informal know-how trading in the framework of a “Prisoner’s Dilemma”, real-world conditions can be specified where this behavior both does and does not make economic sense from the point of view of participating firms. Data available to date on the presence and absence of such trading seem to be roughly in accordance with the predictions of this simple model.
Although presently documented only as a firm-level phenomenon involving the trading of proprietary technical knowhow, informal know-how trading seems relevant to (and may currently exist in) many other types of situation. Indeed, it may be applicable to any situation in which individuals or organizations are involved in a competition where possession of proprietary know-how represents a form of competitive advantage.”




Innovation communities: the role of networks of promotors in Open Innovation – InterScience

Research on Open Innovation has increasingly emphasized the role of communities in creating, shaping and disseminating innovations. However, the comparability of many studies has been hampered by the lack of a precise definition of the community construct, and the research on Open Innovation has to date not been well connected to insights from research on the role of transformational leaders and the networking of champions and promoters across organizational boundaries. For this reason, this paper introduces a new construct of ‘innovation communities’ based on promoter theory, which it defines as ‘networks of promoters’. It proposes a comprehensive concept of the quality of interaction in innovation communities, and presents findings of three case studies, which explore the role of promoters and networks of promoters in Open Innovation. The case studies reveal that such transformational leaders as promoters, and especially their close and informal co-operation across functional and organizational boundaries, play a key role in Open Innovation.


This and a lot of other subjects drive us to the future!


Innovating in a downturn – Open innovation management the future for pharma? – Thepharmaletter

“Most companies agree that OI is key, but relatively few have so far adopted a structured or company-wide approach to it. Several felt that it can be difficult to gain buy-in and resources for OI projects. Those involved in OI can feel marginalized, under pressure to show results or even anonymous company-wide, said PA.

The view among those PA spoke to is that successful OI requires leadership, both from the top of the business and all the way through the heads of function. With relevant, respected members of the company seen to be championing it, the process is much easier. Leadership was also seen as critical to building the essential outward-looking culture – an engaged, enthusiastic chief executive or head of function can do much to engender a similar attitude in employees, and get OI accepted.”

What kind of interrogations on the next step?

No passado,

A Era do Inovação aberta

No passado, o R & D interno era um activo estratégico valioso, mesmo uma formidável barreira à entrada de concorrentes em vários mercados. Apenas as grandes corporações como DuPont, IBM e AT & T poderiam competir, fazendo mais de P & D em suas respectivas indústrias (e, posteriormente, colher a maior parte dos lucros também). Os rivais que tentaram derrubar as potências tiveram que investir recursos consideráveis para criar os seus próprios laboratórios, se queriam ter alguma hipótese de sucesso. Nos nossos dias, porém, as empresas industriais do passado foram encontrando notavelmente forte concorrência de muitos iniciantes. Surpreendentemente, estes recém-chegados, traziam pouca ou nenhuma de pesquisa básica consigo, mas em vez disso procuraram obter novas ideias para o mercado através de um processo diferente.

EJIM Edição Especial sobre Open Innovation

Quarta-feira março 17, 2010

Segundo Henry Chesbrough “A inovação Aberta é o uso intencional de entradas e saídas de conhecimento para acelerar a inovação interna e ampliar os mercados para o uso externo da inovação”. Vários fenómenos heterogéneos são compatíveis com uma definição tão ampla e foram todos rotulados de Inovação Aberta: os mercados de propriedade intelectual, com ou sem a presença de intermediários, crowdsourcing e inovação centrada no usuário chumbo, académicos e empresas, e projectos de pesquisa colaborativa. O aprovisionamento externo e, a comercialização externa de inovação são práticas muito diferentes também.

Até que ponto estes fenómenos podem ser estudados como um?

Entretanto foram feitas algumas observações:

Abra a informação / Propriedade Intelectual / troca de informação

“O know-how comercial informal é a ampla troca de know-how proprietário de redes informais de engenheiros de processos rivais de (e não rivais) empresas. Tenho observado esse know-how de redes de comércio a ser muito activos na indústria de aço minimill E.U. e em outros lugares, e eles parecem representar uma nova forma de cooperação em I & D.
Quando se examina informal know-how comercial no âmbito de um “dilema do prisioneiro”, condições do mundo real pode ser especificado em que esse comportamento, tanto faz e não faz sentido económico a partir do ponto de vista das empresas participantes. Os dados disponíveis até à data sobre a presença ea ausência de negociação, como parecem ser mais ou menos de acordo com as previsões do modelo simples.
Embora actualmente documentados apenas como uma empresa-nível fenômeno envolvendo a negociação do know-how técnico proprietária informal e know-how comercial parecem relevante (e actualmente podem existir em) muitos outros tipos de situação. Na verdade, pode ser aplicável a qualquer situação em que indivíduos ou organizações estão envolvidas em uma competição onde a posse de propriedade know-how “representa uma forma de vantagem competitiva.


Comunidades de inovação: o papel das redes de promotores no Open Innovation

Pesquisa sobre Inovação Aberta tem vindo a sublinhar o papel das comunidades na criação, elaboração e difusão de inovações. No entanto, a comparabilidade dos muitos estudos tem sido dificultado pela falta de uma definição precisa de construir a comunidade, e as pesquisas sobre inovação aberta até à data não foi bem ligado a descobertas da investigação sobre o papel dos líderes transformacionais e a ligação em rede dos campeões e factores para além das fronteiras organizacionais. Por esta razão, este artigo introduz um novo conceito de ‘comunidades de inovação “, com base na teoria do promotor, que define como” redes de promotores “. Ele propõe um conceito abrangente da qualidade da interacção em comunidades de inovação e apresenta resultados de três estudos de caso, que exploram o papel dos promotores e dos promotores em redes de inovação aberta. Os estudos de caso revelam que tais líderes transformacionais como promotores e, especialmente, seus próximos e cooperação informal através das fronteiras funcionais e organizacionais, desempenham um papel fundamental na inovação aberta.

Isto e muitos outros assuntos conduzem-nos ao futuro!


Inovando em uma recessão – gestão da inovação aberta no futuro para a indústria farmacêutica?

A maioria das empresas declara que a Oi é a chave, mas relativamente poucos, até agora adoptaram de forma estruturada ou fizeram uma abordagem corporativa ao mesmo. Alguns consideraram que pode ser difícil ganhar o “buy-in” e de recursos para projectos de OI. Os envolvidos na OI pode sentir-se marginalizados, sob pressão para mostrar resultados ou mesmo sociedade anónima de largura, disse PA.

A opinião entre os PA é que a OI bem sucedida exige liderança, tanto a partir do topo da empresa e em todo o caminho através dos chefes de função. Com relevantes, membros respeitados da sociedade a defender que, o processo é muito mais fácil. Cultura de liderança também era visto como crucial para construir o essencial para o exterior – um compromisso entre executivo chefe ou chefe entusiasta da função pode fazer muito para gerar uma atitude semelhante em funcionários, e obter OI aceite.
