best practices in innovation management
Best Practices in Innovation Management
  • Understand what innovation is, and understand the reasons, motivations, risks and rewards for being innovative.
    • Innovation – something new that replicates in a market (or in a process). 
    • Closely related to entrepreneurship.  Solves a great problem or creates a great opportunity, thereby creating great value. 
    • Companies that continuously do this outperform companies that don’t, both in long- and shorter-term value metrics (profits, brand equity, employee engagement, etc.).
  • A company that is good at innovation has both leaders and problem solvers (or opportunity creators).  To be a good leader of innovation, one must be fluent (and act in) the languages of leadership, business and design.  
    • Foster good leaders and good problem solvers by building a culture of high trust (low fear) and high creativity.

Best Practices in Innovation Management
  • Timing is crucial for successful innovation: the market must be ready, but you must be (near the) first to meet those needs.  
  • Know your customers intimately, and let them know you, too.
    • Pay attention to trends, technological breakthroughs, political and social forces, and availability of resources (natural, human, financial). 
    • All of these will help create a strong innovation strategy.
  • Innovation needs the proper support of internal resources (time, money, people – including organizational buy-in).
  • Develop tools to determine ROI/Time that align with business goals, including all key stakeholders in those calculations.   Be objective in making a business case (will it be worth it?  Does it make sense?  Do we have the capacity to do this, and if not, should we build capacity?).  Monitor projects frequently.  When factors change, re-calculate and be prepared to change course.
  • You can shorten time to ROI (or any transaction) by building trust.  Trust comes from alignment of purpose and transparency.

  • Companies can find other ways to monetize great ideas or opportunities, that don’t involve bringing those to market.  This includes selling or licensing Intellectual Property, creating spin-offs, or preventing competitors from seizing the same opportunity.
  • There is great value in following fast, modeling solutions from other industries or other markets, or shopping outside your organization for solutions.
  • Celebrate your successes, but do not rest on your laurels.  Learn from, but do not dwell on your mistakes.
