  9. The ‘Innovative’ NavSim equation  • Innovation = Dynamics = High R&D = High Risk • Where: • Dynamics = constant change in short periods of time • 100% < R&D > 50% • Risk  risk sharing or risking risk sharing? • a Hollywood marriage with the prenuptial clause • Company – blind ‘I do’ commitment? • VC, Angels, Investors – give it a second chance • Public Sector – you have my heart (today), let’s sign it (tomorrow or… maybe later)

  10. The 4th Dimension - Time • Time is money (broadly managed - don’t waste it) • Time to Market (more precise but still manageable – be there first, and at the right time) • Time to money (cashflow) – you can control it • If T2M is not your concern • If your rich and childless uncle just died • If the innovation is your second business • Seriously – If you have the entire Team participating in the culture of Innovation

  11. The Team • Definition of the Team • Within the Company (classic view) • At Large (External links) • Partners, subcontractors – technology driven, market oriented clusters • Investment Managers – (VC, public sector)

  12. Attributes and Challenges(Company Level) • Strongest Dynamics • Highest Risk • Greatest Flexibility • Shortest days • Greatest Satisfaction or Peril

  13. The Enjoyable • Building A Sharing Team • Watching their daily work & witnessing their challenges & satisfaction • Learning from the Team • Interacting (communicating)

  14. The Worries • Bureaucracy (rules) • People who know how to use these rules (they usually also know how to run the company, and possibly everything else) • People who stopped learning • People who think The System will solve all their problems (later, hopefully) • Paydays
