  18. 18. Key takeaways to make your innovation process sustainable: ›  Don’t think of it as an technology innovation portfolio, it’s a set of innovations that can drive business value – business innovation ›  While you can concentrate efforts periodically, your innovation process needs to be defined and in operation constantly ›  Dedicate resources towards the program – it’s much more difficult if people have to multitask between operational and innovative ›  Exploit your entire ecosystem to gather ideas, vet them, prototype and test them, and commercialize them ›  Manage the innovation portfolio separate from the operational portfolio: •  Governance •  Funding •  KPIs •  Communications © 2013 Forrester Research, Inc.
