OUTCOME DRIVEN INNOVATION

Where are you on your journey to outcome driven innovation?

In today’s fast-changing world, the importance of innovation is undisputable. And while most organizations identify outcome driven innovation as a key organizational strategy for growth, sustainability and productivity, many are still sorting out exactly how to make it happen.

More than a word, and certainly something we all aspire to, innovation is not a one size fits all proposition. Successful innovation happens within the context of your business and to drive specific outcomes.

Maybe you recognize your organization in one of these scenarios:

  • Your organization is working to articulate an innovation strategy
  • You have no strategy and need help understanding what to do
  • Your existing efforts at outcome driven innovation aren’t producing the desired results
  • Your people understand you want to “be more innovative” and they’re wondering how, or worse, they’ve disengaged from your innovation program
  • Your organization is focused on game-changing innovation and missing opportunities for incremental innovation.

What Is Innovation?

The Conference Board of Canada defines innovation as the process through which economic and social value is extracted from knowledge through the generation, development, and implementation of ideas to produce new or improved strategies, capabilities, products, services, or processes.

“Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.”

– Teddy Roosevelt

You’re nervous that things are moving too quickly. The leadership team has declared that the organization is to be more innovative and managers are sending people on training. You sense that the training might be a waste of resources if no one takes the time to first understand the organization’s aptitude for outcome driven innovation or has a plan for what to do when training ends.

Here are some options to bring things into focus:

Innovation Lab! An Innovation Unit! A “Dragon’s Den” competition! Your leadership team is enthusiastic about these ideas for making the organization more innovative. You’re concerned the organization is not focused on the right challenges and that any solutions based on their assumptions will be a waste of the organization’s time and resources.
