Recap of Panel: Learn How to Sustainably Innovate or Be Left Behind

Innovation at the intersection of Strategy, Capabilities, and InsightsI moderated a great panel discussion on Sustainable Innovation yesterday on Focus. It was quite enlightening to hear insights from people who’ve been at larger companies like Facebook, Linkedin, eBay, and Yahoo; but have also been at smaller startups too. I raised the concept of “Compound Innovation” and wrote up some of my thoughts on why I think this is a very powerful model of innovation here.

Some of the topics we discussed:

  • What differentiates successful innovation from the more typical product evolution?
  • How do you best measure true innovation success vs. failure?
  • How can you best optimize your organization and processes to foster successful innovation?
  • After experiencing many different innovation programs and processes, what actually works?
  • What are the myths of innovation that continue to be pitfalls?
