Innovation often is seen as something you have to solve – something you have to manage – by giving budgets, allocating people, introducing new titles (such as Chief Innovation Officer) or building Research Departments or Labs. This is not completely wrong – but I believe that it’s not enough. Innovation is an outcome of a culture that enables creativity, courage, and off-the-wall thinking. E.g. if your company is to hierarchical or to much focussed on silo goals chances are high that the employees stop thinking in challenging and creative ways. It is demotivating when you create an idea, showcase it and get the typical answer of “Cool, but no” or “Cool, but we did try it” or “Cool, but this is not your job”…
