Here are some ways to increase the chances for success: • Create a dedicated workspace. The space should be organized and designed to encourage conversation and independent thinking and to facilitate small- group collaborations as well as meetings or workshops with business colleagues or outside experts. • Meet regularly with business leaders. Having a regular interdisciplinary forum for discussing innovations in addition to informal, unstructured conversations means that the IT team can learn about business challenges and get regular business feedback on their ideas. • Partner with outsiders.
