Why Innovation Works
Why Innovation Works?
“Teams need support to cultivate the required creative core culture which …
encourages innovative thinking that dares to challenge the status quo!”
Implementing and managing technical, quality, improvement and innovation projects is rarely simple. Often written about failure rates have been reported by research as between 60% ~ 70%. Failure factors are often cited as not identifying or applying good project practices, quality or innovation management approaches, methods, tools and techniques. Primary among these factors is a failure to communicate effectively a compelling value proposition born of the true Voice of the Customer. Skills capacity building and access to specialist expertise, experience and knowledge can help to support greater early stage success and avoid costly, time consuming, wasteful failures, defects and lowering quality standards, customer satisfaction and expectations.
Progressing to internally develop, empower and then harness reusable internal expertise is a gift that can keep on giving. Resulting in the needed coal face agility to quickly identify and react as new and emerging innovative and improvement opportunities as they appear. Such knowledge resources should be organisation wide and culture deep. Leaning to adopt, adapt and transform a positive core culture requires a commitment to greater experimentation that embraces constructive failure, frequent learning, experience and wisdom building coming from the bottom up.
