The Nine Innovation Roles is a concept introduced in the popular book 'Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire' by Braden Kelley and published by John Wiley & Sons in October 2010. It focuses on the role(s) that everyone plays in the success of an organization's innovation efforts - that it is not about whether someone is innovative or not - but how they can contribute to innovation. Everyone has a role to play in successful innovation.

  • But while having a system is important, at the end of the day a system is only as good as its people – you need really good people to maintain your system and keep innovation flowing out the other end

  • 5. The Nine Innovation Roles Innovation isabout the people © Braden Kelley 2010
  • 6. The Nine Innovation RolesRevolutionary• The Revolutionary is the person who is always eager to change things, to shake them up, and to share his or her opinion. These people tend to have a lot of great ideas and are not shy about sharing them. They are likely to contribute 80 to 90 percent of your ideas in open scenarios. © Braden Kelley 2010
  • 7. The Nine Innovation RolesArtist• The Artist doesn’t always come up with great ideas, but artists are really good at making them better. © Braden Kelley 2010
  • 8. The Nine Innovation RolesTroubleshooter• Every great idea has at least one or two major roadblocks to overcome before the idea is ready to be judged or before its magic can be made. This is where the Troubleshooter comes in. Troubleshooters love tough problems and often have the deep knowledge or expertise to help solve them. © Braden Kelley 2010
  • 9. The Nine Innovation RolesConscript• The Conscript has a lot of great ideas but doesn’t willingly share them, either because such people don’t know anyone is looking for ideas, don’t know how to express their ideas, prefer to keep their head down and execute, or all three. This is the majority. © Braden Kelley 2010
  • 10. The Nine Innovation RolesCustomer Champion• The Customer Champion may live on the edge of the organization. Not only does he have constant contact with the customer, but he also understands their needs, is familiar with their actions and behaviors, and is as close as you can get to interviewing a real customer about a nascent idea. © Braden Kelley 2010
  • 11. The Nine Innovation RolesConnector• The Connector does just that. These people hear a Conscript say something interesting and put him together with a Revolutionary; The Connector listens to the Artist and knows exactly where to find the Troubleshooter that his idea needs. © Braden Kelley 2010
  • 12. The Nine Innovation RolesJudge• The Judge is really good at determining what can be made profitably and what will be successful in the marketplace. © Braden Kelley 2010
  • 13. The Nine Innovation RolesMagic Maker• The Magic Makers take an idea and make it real. These are the people who can picture how something is going to be made and line up the right resources to make it happen. © Braden Kelley 2010
  • 14. The Nine Innovation RolesEvangelist• The Evangelists know how to educate people on what the idea is and help them understand it. Evangelists are great people to help build support for an idea internally, and also to help educate customers on its value. © Braden Kelley 2010
