How to Drive Innovation by Antonio Clavien
I have facilitated Antonio Clavien, with great success, in my consulting practice. I apply it as a session to spark innovation among all employees, regardless of their role or position within an organization. My premise is that everyone, in all departments: accounting, sales, marketing, manufacturing, engineering, human resources, operations, distribution, and so on; have great ideas. Given the right forum for exposure, these ideas can take shape and receive leadership support to move forward and eventually develop into new or improved products, services, processes, structures that will benefit the organization.
The Proclamation of Innovation – Redefine Your Industry
Please note that this is much easier said than done. Although organizations could gain a leadership position momentarily, to consistently maintain it is much more difficult to achieve. When Antonio is not dedicating his time to business ventures or his charity contributions, he tries to enjoy his personal interests, which include equestrian, cooking, history, golf, politics, global economics and fine art Plus, no business should expect to release an innovation expecting the market to reward them with sustained growth and success. Instead, companies must follow up with a series of radical innovations capable of leading the marketplace.
I was eavesdropping on a conversation on one of my groups on the subject. All too often companies invest considerable time, cost and effort in ‘innovation’ without return. The CEO gets inspired by the idea of innovation, persuaded by an article, book, speaker, etc and suddenly there is budget to ‘do innovation’. All stops are pulled and things are go go. Only it doesn’t stick.
Confusing Invention: turning cash into ideas, with Innovation, turning ideas into cash, thereby not treating each accordingly.
Cost of Innovation. Knowing that on average over 90% of innovative projects fail and never rich ROI, it’s obvious that top management will try to avoid “too much innovation”. This leads to playing safe and focusing on external acquisitions rather than pursuing innovation internally.
Culture. “Man” is a creature of habit -to innovate one has to break old habits – and that’s not easy.
