Why Innovation Strategy?

The cost and time required to create a new product or service are so large than lack of a perfectly aligned and executed innovation strategy can be extremely wasteful. "You must create an innovation strategy that is aligned with not only your firm's core mission and values, but with your future technology, supplier, and manufacturing strategies. Lack of alignment between product and process architectures rapidly increases cost and risk. If your development process and organization structure are not matched to each other and your firm's strategy, you're in even deeper trouble."1

Working ON Your Business

"Most businesspeople are so busy working for their business or in their business that they never find time to work on their business. Thus they fail to anticipate what might happen or what they might be able to make happen."3

The Art of Innovation: 9 Truths

By: Guy Kawasaki

  1. Jump to the next curve. Too many companies duke it out on the same curve. If they were daisy wheel printer companies, they think innovation means adding Helvetica in 24 points.

Achieving the Right Balance Between Stretch and Strategic Fit

 

The first test for any innovation portfolio is achieving the right balance between stretch and strategic fit. If you engage in hyperreactiveness thinking and continually react to the latest market or technological trend, rather than following a course until there is a significant reason to change, you’ll fail. The key to avoiding such short-term thinking is to maintain strategic alignment and test the assumptions that drive new products and service decisions as you make these choices.

 Lessons from Silicon Valley Firms  

Deciding If Your Innovation Portfolio Has Enough Stretch

Adapted from Relentless Growth, Christopher Meyer

  1. Balance between revolutionary and evolutionary initiatives. First, Silicon Valley companies assess the overall balance between revolutionary and evolutionary projects. The ultimate arbitrator of portfolio stretch if the innovation leaders’ judgment, experience, intuition, and luck... More

Road-Mapping

The goal of the road-mapping is to develop the innovation strategy - to choose and do the right things. The goal of innovation management is to implement this strategy well.

Road-mapping leads to effective project portfolio development and management. It provides for company-wide technological strategy development and technology assessment, as well as division-level project evaluation and strategic aligning. Road-mapping tools provide also a common language for innovation and building bridges between technologists and business managers within your corporation, and with you major suppliers and customers.
