  • Innovating for Growth and Prosperity A Programme by Ishmael Yamson & Associates Corporate Strategy Consultants, Advisors and Brand and Channel Developers
  • The Strategic Context of Innovation What is Innovation? The Role of Innovation Why Innovate? Where should Organisations Innovate? Getting The Most Out Of Innovation Seeing The Big Picture Risks and Challenges "You can only win the „war‟ with ideas, not with spending cuts." Klaus Kleinfeld, President and CEO, Siemens AG
  • Viewpoint Everyone knows that innovation is what drives (business) success in the 21st century, right? – Business Week, March 3, 2010
  • From Your Stand Point • How well do you know your organization? • Where will your organization be 5 years from now and what will take it there? • What do you think is being done right in your organization today? How is it impacting the organization? • What do you think is being done wrong in your organization today. How is it impacting the organization? • Is there a process for resolving what is not being done well? • What role do you have to play in resolving what is being done wrong? • What externalities are impacting on your organization and is there a clearly defined process? • How often do you spend time thinking about what you are doing? • Would you describe your organization as innovative
  • What Is Innovation? Some Perspectives Of Innovation •Survival and performance in an era of uncertainty & discontinuity •"Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow." William Pollard •"The winner is the chef who takes the same ingredients as everyone else and produces the best results." Edward de Bono
  • What Is Innovation? The Changing Nature Of Innovation • Old View Innovation is a broad, pervasive – Individual originator/inventor phenomenon that goes on everywhere – Innovation was a specialized • Is primarily built on the infrastructure of the individual activity – Adoption of mass production – Business systems/models followed the innovation The critical constraining factor is not science – or R&D – but demand • 21st century: Today • Means to an end model- Democratizing demand – Partnerships for innovation – Shared responsibility for implementation – Stakeholders benefits Consequences for organisational • Tomorrow models? – Mass-customization, – Open -source communities
  • What Is Innovation? Strategy vs. Innovation • Strategy is about delivering the organization‟s • vision and goals, and • long term objectives • Innovation, is about how to maximise the • new opportunities, • new markets, • new products and services, • new operating models…. ……. defined in the strategy • There is really no such thing as innovation strategy, rather, innovation is a tool in the execution of strategy
  • What Is Innovation? Transformational Innovation: Examples 1. Green public transport - South Korea • Sensor-driven magnetic recharging strips embedded in roads 2.Charismatic churches in Ghana •Transformed the way church services are held
  • What Is Innovation? Radical Innovation: Business Examples 1. Google – an innovation engine • Mission: Organise all the world‟s information and make it universally accessible and useful by collaborating 2. Plastic Bottles for soft drinks • New business solution and a disruption in consumer accessibility
  • What Is Innovation? Incremental Innovation: Business Example 1. GINO range of products • Continuous introduction of new products in new categories
  • What Is Innovation? A Strategic Imperative for all Organisations • It is a key driver to Growth, Efficiency, Productivity and Prosperity “A package should save more than it costs.” Dr Ruben Rausing - Tetrapak
  • The Role Of Innovation Enabler • Innovation is an ENABLER to the delivery of corporate strategy and plans. • Innovation enhances • goal delivery, • achievement of differentiation, • discovery of new markets or needs and • Discovery of different ways of doing things
  • The Role Of Innovation Driver of Competitiveness & Prosperity Prosperity Competitiveness & Productivity Innovative Capacity Endowments Resources and Capabilities
  • The Role Of Innovation Redefines Competition • “Capability destroying “ – Disruptive innovation Build new capabilities – KAIST‟s car will change road-building Increase capabilities in pace, • “Capability enhancing“ and scale and – Collaborative Inter- impact of Organizational Networks innovations Make – Hydrogen cars require a competitors‟ capabilities new value chain irrelevant
  • Seeing The Big Picture Proactive vs. Reactive Stage 3 Denial of risks & Peril Stage 2 Constructive Destruction Undisciplined Stage 4 pursuit of Grasping for • Proactively reconstruct the more Salvation competitive context Stage 1 Strategic Inflection Hubris born Stage 5 out of Capitulation to • Failure to see the perils of a success Irrelevance or death dynamic Environment Barbarian Effects • Making the competition irrelevant Source: How the Mighty Fall – Jim Collins Different stages on the Growth Cycle can be triggered by these 3 effects
  • The Role Of Innovation An Instrument Of Good Corporate Citizenship Improve Expand Quality Prosperity of Life • Creates a ring of GOODWILL around Innovation the organisation Protect the Eliminate Environment poverty
  • Why Innovate? Organisational Benefits • Securing current & future growth and prosperity • Leading the cycle of competitive advantage • Driving productivity and efficiency • Remaining relevant • Ensuring long-term survival These benefits apply to Commercial, Non-profit and Public sector organisations in different ways
  • Why Innovate? Building to Last • Deliver Sustainable Growth, through • Policy • Processes • Products/Services
  • Where Should Organisations Innovate? Think „Value-Chain‟ Structure • Organisations must recognize the value- Value END-USER delivery chain Processes Chain VALUE requires innovation at every link to Systems succeed
  • Where Should Organisations Innovate? Focus on the Value-Chain • Managing the delivery of more value with decreased cost, while protecting competitive positioning • Applies to all strategy – Cost: Lowest costs – Service: Added-value – Niche: Proprietary solutions
  • Critical Success Factors In Getting The Most Out Of Innovation Managing the Associated Factors Impacting Success Internal Environment Organisational Culture Organisational Structure Enabling Technology People Management Implementation Strategic Innovation Competencies Focus Management of Leadership Innovation Market Interface Speed Strategy and Vision Commercialisation Process Quality Future Scenarios Innovation Management Commitment Competency Innovation Capability Management Technology Management Resource Management Idea and Creativity Management Alliances and Intellectual Property Networks
  • Critical Success Factors In Getting The Most Out Of Innovation Internal Environment • Collaborative • Strategy Assessment • Structure & Organization – Consumer Knowledge • Financial Resources – Market Knowledge • Human Resources Innovation Capability Improved • Managing Externalities • Innovation Culture – Open Innovation • Information & Technology Partners • Idea Generation/Creativity Process – Competitive Forces • Implementation of Innovation • Managing for Continuity • Market Orientation & Operation – Innovation Cycles • Exploitation of the Innovation – Innovation Portfolios
  • Seeing The Big Picture Proactive vs.. Reactive • Constructive Destruction Proactively reconstructing the competitive context • Strategic Inflection Failure to see the perils in a dynamic environment • Barbarian Effects The curse of lethargy
  • Seeing The Big Picture Scalability and Multiplier Effects • Ability to Exploit Benefits – Longer – Over more applications – Greater value creation • Expand Process efficiency – Agile structures – New opportunities from established lines of business • Improved Operations – Better – Coordination across firms – Diffusion of best practices – Performance benchmarking
  • Risks and Challenges The Wrong Culture  Excessive focus on the short-term  Lack of exposure to innovation  Discomfort with innovation, especially open innovation  Cocooning:  Not appreciating discontinuity as fundamental  Not seeing why a culture of networking is important for open innovation  Being too far away from the action  Rewarding people for getting stuff done  Risk-averse top executives  The threat of uncertainty to individuals
  • Risks and Challenges Innovator‟s Dilemma • Bunker mentality • Tunnel vision • „New toy‟ syndrome

  • Designing and Using Innovation Management Process The Key Objectives • Identify ideas with potential • Align value creation to strategy • Ensure design expectations are met • Optimize routes to idea implementation • Assure profitable and sustainable implementation • Accurately identify replicable innovations with multiplier effects
  • Designing and Using Innovation Management Process Guidelines For the Design of Stages And Gates I. Process Credibility – Objective cross-functional project team develops the process – Clear mandate to develop a process capable of driving better performance. – Set benchmarks and KPIs for the innovation – Critically assess the process strengths and weakness – Avoid making internal compromises or succumbing to internal politics II. Visible and Meaningful Leadership Support – Explain why it is critical to the future of the company – Senior executive sponsor to publicly support the initiative and project leaders – Regular executive team updates to match present to organisational memory – Senior execs to champion the impact of change throughout the organization
  • Designing and Using Innovation Management Process Guidelines For the Design of Stages And Gates III. Sufficient and Appropriate Resources – Executives and team agree on and commit necessary resources in people, skills, funds and time, Passionate people IV.Defined Roles and Responsibilities – Implementation Champions - Executive Sponsor and Process Manager – Innovators - Project Leaders and Team Members – Gatekeepers - The decision makers V. Strategic Implementation Approach – Chose an approach that fits the organisational strategy – The greater the change, the higher the risk of failure
  • Designing and Using Innovation Management Process Guidelines For the Design of Stages And Gates VI. Effective Communication for Buy-In – Progress meetings with senior executives – Answer the “so what?” and “why?” questions clearly and concisely – Available and easily accessible documentation – Listen to the feedback you receive VII.Performance Tracking of specific innovations – Concise, SMART metrics aligned with mandate – Measure process effectiveness: projects enrolled in the Stage-Gate process; adoption rates; gate meeting frequency and quality – Measure innovation performance: time-to-profit; new product success rates VIII.Sharing the effectiveness of the framework – Avoid too many metrics and – Avoid teams that are not aligned on key outcomes
  • Designing and Using Innovation Management Process Guidelines For the Design of Stages And Gates IX. Managing potential conflicts between the framework and Organizational Culture – Conduct risk and barrier analysis of key stakeholders – Assess impact on processes that will be affected – Assess how new process will work with old processes – Enablers for the types of behavioural change required – Who will be responsible for managing the change – Know the differing views at all levels and functional areas X. Effective Change Management – Innovation involves change management – Communicate widely the importance to continually aspire – Reward people and behaviours that support the change – Manage tradeoffs – Don‟t underestimate the scale of the change; adjust plans as needed
  • Designing and Using Innovation Management Process Mandatory Elements • Cross-functional management (2X) • Manage all procedures, from I2I, via the agreed process • Ensure every innovation justification is aligned with strategy • Agree a single point of responsibility for all innovation decisions • Mandate a cross-functional oversight team for Risk Management
  • Putting Innovation Management Processes Into Action Project Planning Qu(s) • What do we want to accomplish? • What specifically are we delivering at the end of this effort? • Who takes responsibility for what we are delivering once this effort is over? • What key deliverables must we accomplish to reach our end goal? • Who do we need to define, sequence and complete the tasks needed to meet those key deliverables? • How much time do we need to meet those key deliverables? • How much money do we need to meet those key deliverables? • What are the risks we can anticipate that might keep us from meeting those key deliverables? • How will we react to any risks if they occur?
  • Putting Innovation Management Processes Into Action Approval Meeting Preparation Qu(s) • What are we tracking to know we are ; • on schedule? • on budget? • making progress on completing our key deliverables? • How will we identify risks and/or issues? • What will be our responses to the previously identified risks and/or issues? • Who else needs to know the answers to these questions and what is their preferred communication channel? • Do we have the appropriate amount of • resources (human, budget, etc) necessary to execute the estimated work effort? • leadership commitment and oversight to ensure a quality project delivery? • Does our effort have any dependencies or conflicts with any other efforts currently being conducted within the organization? • Have we identified any other “part-time” or transient resources required for project delivery?
  • Putting Innovation Management Processes Into Action Gatekeepers Project Status Qu(s) • Are we • on schedule? • on budget? • making progress on completing our key deliverables? • confident the key deliverables meet our strategic requirements? • Are there any risks and/or issues that have come up since the last time we met? • What is our response to the risks and/or issues? • Do we still have enough time, money and resources to complete our key deliverables? • Are there any changes required to ensure we have enough time, money and resources to complete our key deliverables? • Is there any opportunity to speed up the schedule, reduce cost, free-up resources or deliver additional tasks without negative impact? • Are the right people being informed of our progress and status?
  • Putting Innovation Management Processes Into Action Project Closure Qu(s) • Did we achieve … • what we promised at the beginning of the project? • successfully the key deliverables promised at the beginning of the project? • Did we deliver our effort • on time (within acceptable variance)? • on budget (within acceptable variance)? • Were the deliverables of acceptable quality? • Were there any significant risks and/or issues that caused us to stray outside the acceptable boundaries set for the effort? • Were the right people communicated with regarding the completion of the effort and the results? • Have the resources (human, remaining budget, space, etc.) been released for other use? • What are the lessons learned from this effort that may benefit future innovation efforts?
  • Embedding Innovation Culture In The Organisation Developing and Living the Right Culture and Behaviours Measuring Success Managing Failure
  • Developing and Living the Right Culture and Behaviours Living The Innovation Culture: • Every voice heard must be heard “The • Senior management sponsorship system” • Inspire/promote idea champions must be • Freedom to experiment - with balanced responsibility by • Make room for failure “the • Reward sensible risk-taking person”
  • Measuring Success Leadership Metrics • stimulate the innovation dynamics • motivate risks-taking to receive rewards • develop a culture of entrepreneurial leadership • balance incremental vs. discontinuous innovation • align organizational processes, metrics to growth • create an environment conducive to new business creation
  • Measuring Success Organizational Metrics • Objectively identify and define Optimization Focused opportunities (Stable Environment) • Meet current customer • Rapid development and/or commercialization of innovation needs • Exploit what you know • Maximization of profit/targets from “mature” market/objectives Innovation Focused • Revamp internal processes to drive (Dynamic Environment) innovation (Structure/Systems) • Anticipate future needs • Increase revenues, profits and growth • Explore what you don‟t rates from specific innovations know • Create and own the “highest standard”
