There is a profound shift taking place, relating to innovation. Increasingly we are seeing a growing dissatisfaction on the impact that innovation is having; in growth, in returns, in market and customer impact. There is a search for new solutions.
One of the implications is this growing recognition that innovation is rarely succeeding in isolation but it is growing on a more highly dependent type of complementary innovation, a collaborative network, working around this new emerging innovation to deliver a more connected, radical experience, requiring innovation ecosystem management.
This dramatic change we will all be undergoing will have a significant impact on organizations innovation management design and it requires new connecting’ thinking.
Here is my first view of the pieces that are forming around the new innovation approaches we need to consider
This is a visual of what I feel is forming to usher in new innovation. On first view, it looks overwhelming but I am not so sure when you explore each of the pieces.
Today we are seeing all the separate pieces being sketched out constantly by different parties, explored and explained as we are learning. Some other parts are beginning to be established and understood by experimentation and different applications.
It is the piecing together that is stretching the mind at present or actually it is more the breaking of this map down, into first, second and third order relationships. My next task.
This new innovation thinking has distinct challenges and implications that need thinking through. Now it is the how this can be combined. The intersection of innovation ecosystems, platforms and customer experience are just beginning to be explored over at www.ecosystems4innovating.wordpress.com to be part of this new thinking in exploring essential parts yet as this is being discussed it seems to trigger much more, as I have attempted to capture in this above visual, a big challenge that does need this piecing together.
