another motto for innovation
"Share, Reuse, Remix, - Legally" Creative Commons
And this has immediate and direct operational impacts ...
how standardization might lead to monopoly ?
It does when the standards are owned by a few people and/or organisations.
Just consider the oligopoly formed by the proprietors of some IT governance framework under copyright.
"The organisation will recognise genuine efforts to innovate and will support the development of ideas."
How so ?
as an innovation governance consultant, i would not make an opinion without a minimum assessment of the strategy.
If i were an employee or a shareholder, i might have some different attitudes.
Open Innovation includes spin in and out.
Let me suggest you to refer to Chesbrough's original diagram and book.
If i read you well, nurturing innovation would need some kind of process (here i am building on your response):
- allocate "space" to staff to develop ideas into a presentation"
- "have staff presenting their idea"
- "select the idea"
- "dedicate time, money and resources"
- "bring the idea to market"
That reminds me a film on 3M which i saw on a training when i was a brand new employee at IBM labs... a long time ago (thanks for this reminder)
Would you adapt this process for open innovation ?
I would feel that to have a productive discussion on innovation, we would find opportune to bring in some cases taken from some specific industry to illustrate concepts / general statements.
The IT sector is a tremendous field to explore and is as well as an enabler for innovation in other sectors.
i would be with you by saying that culture of innovation has to be promoted from the top.
Only the top can decide how to compensate employees, - in addition of their regular salary-, for their creations, inventions or ideas and ask HR to put in place the right mechanisms.
If the employee is working in an R&D department, i would not feel that he would be entitled to get some extras when he find something : that's his job to find things.
But if he is working in an accounting department as an accountant, i feel that it would be fair to compensate a bonus when he issue an idea that would prove effective to increase the overall business, let's say a new value proposition that his employer would represent to the client.
the question is indeed how to feed the innovation pipe.
I am agree that small change might have far reaching effects.
Every one might experience this test :
take a photo and place it on the web under a Creative Commons contract instead of copyright...
You might also apply this move to a poem or a piece of music
or to a business method...
i like your approach to look for talents where they are :
- some people are creator of ideas,
- other needs the ideas to solve their problems or fulfill their needs,
- other turn ideas into solutions.
would you say that "culture" in your question is a way to have effective collaboration between the three parties ? or something else ?
we agree that innovation is the result and process (in French that' common double meaning with words ending with "ation")
Interesting concept, "science of innovation" .
An exact search on Google would give back around 118 000 entries, some with the formules of "Art and Science of innovation" which leads to
Does "innovation in science" mean anything ?
Does "innovation in art" mean anything ?
Does art lead to innovation the same way science does ?
