"Tomorrow´s management processes must nurture innovation in every corner of the organization"

Gary Hamel

Innovation fitness

Innovations must have top priority on the strategic agenda of every executive. Without innovation no organization will survive in the long run. Innovations related e. g. to business models, management practices, work processes, and naturally related also to products, services and technologies, are vital for survival and prosperity.
However, many organizations are still struggling with bringing their innovation capabilities to the next level. The organizational dilemma is to provide room for innovation culture in the middle of a companys`efficiency culture – both are needed. People need the right mindset and adequate skills that can be utilized when new innovations are needed. These skills can be learnt. Organizations also need efficient processes and structures to pick up winning ideas, and to develop these into high quality solutions. Commitment for a visionary innovation strategy and continuous search for new opportunities are the cornerstones of world class innovative organizations.
