  9. 9. Build Ideas B Once you know what you want to do it is time to build ideas that have a chance to deliver on your objectives. Contrary to the belief that the ability to build ideas is limited to a select few, there are tools, techniques that can help any team build better ideas. These tools are: 1. Effectuation (looking for ideas at home with the resources you have) 2. Systematic search for stimulus (get out of the building) 3. Diversity and willingness to bring in new people/resources. With these tools and techniques the process is clear, but clear does not mean easy. Removal of fear and an ongoing action focus is the “secret sauce” that can pull everything together. Deliverable: New ideas that have a good chance of being on strategy; meaningful and unique. www.cyclesbook.com Cycles

  12. 12. www.cyclesbook.com Cycles Communicate/ Check C If you’re looking to build bigger and better ideas, you need to get feedback. To get effective feedback you need to be able to explain your ideas clearly, really listen (listening is not just hearing!), slow down to make sure you are on the right path and most importantly be ready to kill bad ideas. Deliverable: Do people understand the idea, what do they think of the idea, are we making progress. If there is no good hope of progress, kill the idea

  16. 16. www.cyclesbook.com Cycles Systems S A lot of research has shown that systems are the key to innovation success. Systems are made up of interrelated components of people and processes with a clearly defined, shared destination or goal. Systems work best when everyone shares an understanding and commitment to the aim or purpose of the system. The foundations are clarity and a commitment to learn, and improve. Great companies have 3 characteristics that set them apart from the rest. These characteristics are: 1. An ability to see and build on strengths 2. A commitment to build innovation eco-systems and 3. A commitment to ongoing action Deliverable: Simplifying the challenges, structuring the learning process, getting better internally and in your eco-system. Enough information to update your original TRUE NORTH cards and start another cycle.
