Got Innovation Process?
If you want to create a river, you will need two things: flowing water and two river banks. If you want to create a culture of innovation, you will also need two things: new ideas and the organizational structures to keep those ideas flowing forward.
Most organizations miss the mark completely. They either have an abundance of ideas OR overly engineered processes to move those ideas downstream -- but not both.
What's needed is a balance of the two: liquid creativity and meaningful boundaries. Or as the spiritually minded among us might say, "formlessness and form."
If you are interested in helping your organization find the right balance, begin by taking our 4-minute poll. We'll be posting the results here in a few weeks.
