21,706

Published on

In order to help organizations innovate, TrendsSpotting has collected insights from primary research conducted on leading companies as well as start up companies, reviewed academic research together with practical business research and analyzed variety of case studies to come up with core parameters of best practices that are vital for the implementation of innovation in organizations.

On the basis of TrendsSpotting’s core innovation functions, TrendsSpotting has set a methodology to assess organizational innovation readiness.
TrendsSpotting’s Employee Innovation Survey is designed to map the organization and to identify opportunities for change and improvement. With thousands of employees surveyed from different sectors and across five continents, it is considered a validated tool to examine innovation importance and benefits, innovation leadership and innovation culture. Innovation is mapped through the idea stage all the way to execution and commercialization.
TrendsSpotting utilizes these research tools to provide companies with practical recommendations concerning innovation readiness across the organization. These tools can identify gaps between departments, regions and employees’ seniority and involvement. Those can provide indications for obstacles that block innovation processes, and can structure methodology for innovation intervention and innovation success measurement.

Transcript of "Implementing Innovation in Organizations: TrendsSpotting's Innovation Assessment Research Tools"

  1. 1. Implementing  Innovation  in  Organizations    Innovation  Assessment   Research  Tools   TrendsSpotting  Research   January  2013  
  2. 2. Implementing  Innovation  in  Organizations  Innovation  is  known  to  fuel  organizational  growth,  to  drive  future  success,  and  is  the  engine  that  allows  businesses  to  sustain  their  viability  in  a  global  economy.  Both   -­‐and-­‐which  the  constant  need  of  fighting  for  survival  and  the  threat  of  competition  encourage  firms  to  innovate.    Business  and  management  research  clearly  indicates  that  organizations  with  innovative  capacity  can  respond  to  environmental  change  quicker  and  can  perform  better  than  non-­‐innovative  organizations.  Optimal  organizational  innovation  requires  translating  a  business  strategy  into  an  overall  organizational  strategy,  with  proper  mechanisms  to  ensure  successful  innovation  performance  when  introducing  new  commercialized  products  to  the  market.    For  implementing  innovation  in  the  organization,  individuals  in  all  levels  should  be  encouraged  by  top  managers  to  think  independently  and  creatively,  and  share  their  personal  knowledge  with  others.  To  innovate,  companies  need  to  ensure  a  culture  that  supports  new  ideas  and  encourages  new  efforts  on  optimal  execution.  
  3. 3. Implementing  Innovation  in  Organizations    Innovation  Implementation  Methodology      In  order  to  help  organizations  to  innovate  TrendsSpotting  has  collected  insights  from  primary  research  conducted  on  leading  companies  as  well  as  start  up  companies,  reviewed  academic  research  together  with  practical  business  research  and  analyzed  variety  of  case  studies  to  come  up  with  core  parameters  of  best  practices  that  are  vital  for  the  implementation  of  innovation  in  organizations.        On  the  basis  of    core  innovation  functions,  TrendsSpotting  has  set  a  methodology  to  assess  organizational  innovation  readiness.  Shared  perceptions  regarding  innovation,  human  efforts  engaged  in  innovation  processes,  tools  and  platform  utilized,  and  a  structured  innovation  intervention  process  are  presented.      
  4. 4. Implementing  Innovation  in  Organizations    Innovation  Implementation  Methodology      Shared  perceptions  regarding  innovation    o Innovation  as  a  strategic  priority  (benefits  and  opportunities)  o Innovation  as  a  competitive  advantage    o Innovation  requirements  are  clearly  defined  o Initiating  innovation  and  supporting  it  are  defined  as  desired  traits,  which  are   acknowledged  and  rewarded.  
  5. 5. Implementing  Innovation  in  Organizations    Innovation  Implementation  Methodology      Human  efforts  invested  in  innovation:    o Leadership  commitment    o Vision:  Well  communicated,  clear  strategic  vision  and  goals  o Innovation  dedicated  leaders:  innovation  personas  setting  motivations  and  inspirations    o Engaged  employees  that  care  to  promote  innovation  processes  and  outcomes  o Cross  organization  employee  involvement  (cross  departments  and  sectors)    o Innovation  agents  and  external  partners  are  involved  in  innovation  activities    
  6. 6. Implementing  Innovation  in  Organizations    Innovation  Implementation  Methodology      Tools  and  platforms:      o Inspirational  tools  and  creative  settings  o Innovation  learning  tools  o Internal  innovation  communication  channels  /  platforms  o Innovation  performance  metrics  (measurements  and  follow-­‐ups  for  improvement)  o Innovation  incentives  and  rewards    
  7. 7. Implementing  Innovation  in  Organizations    Innovation  Implementation  Methodology      Structuring  the  innovation  intervention  process  TrendsSpotting  proposes  a  defined  process  for  innovation  implementation:      o Identification  of  worthy  innovation  challenges  (incremental  and  disruptive):  portfolio   balance,  short  and  long  term  expectations,  risk  and  success  assessment.      o Identification  of  innovation  obstacles  for  specific  projects  o Managerial  involvement  and  support    o Wide  collaboration  teams  (diversity  of  roles,  departments,  sectors,  regions)  o Supporting  the  process  through  the  4  stages:  Ideation    selection    development  and   commercialization  o Initiation  of  innovation  projects  o Agile  project  management    (execution  planned  and  emphasized  from  the  early  start)  o Re-­‐examining  innovation  projects  (updating  risk  and  benefits)  o Lesson  learning    o Communication  of  shared  innovation  experiences  (successful  projects  as  well  as  failed   ones)    
  8. 8. Assessing  Innovation  Readiness  in  Organizations      On  the  basis  of    core  innovation  functions,  we  have  set  a  methodology  to  assess  organizational  innovation  readiness.      Employee  Innovation  Survey  is  designed  to  map  the  organization  and  to  identify  opportunities  for  change  and  improvement.    With  thousands  of  employees  surveyed  from  different  sectors  and  across  five  continents,  it  is  considered  a  validated  tool  to  examine  innovation  importance  and  perceived  competitive  advantage,  as  well  as  innovation  leadership  and  culture.  Innovation  is  mapped    through  the  idea  stage  all  the  way  to  execution  and  commercialization.    TrendsSpotting  utilizes  these  research  tools  to  provide  companies  with  practical  recommendations  concerning  innovation  readiness  across  the  organization.  These  tools  involvement.  Those  can  provide  indications  for  obstacles  that  block  innovation  processes,  and  can    structure  methodology  for  innovation  intervention  and  innovation  success  measurement.
