Keep the following in mind:
A true leader in innovation is an environmental architect wherein other team members in the organization are empowered and inspired to think beyond their current assumptions about products, value, and market need.
Innovation is found in the process of identifying future needs that may arise as a result of dramatic changes and unexpected events.
Nurturing a culture of innovation:
- An essential element is allowing team members to move in and out of roles in the process.
- Leadership and innovation must be organic, meaning that team members are freely contributing and often leading initiatives to uncover future market space and market need.
- It’s impossible to “manage” innovation.
