Shifting the focus from techniques and procedures that are popular among innovation managers to the sometimes overlooked areas of communication and culture. Often failure to innovate is due to failure to communicate clearly on the floor. This inability can be traced to differences and barriers between corporate cultures and to poor communication practice for key communication events in the innovation process; such as brainstorming, problem statements, ideation exercises, networking in the ecosystem, pitching, Q&A sessions, giving briefings, giving feedback, drafting milestone plans, mock-up presentations, investment pitches, writing business plans, motivating teams, conducting focused meetings, document design, selecting appropriate media, using social media, the list long.
