Sometimes you become concerned, this is one of those moments. I’m getting concerned that we need to take some urgent action.
The Corporate Innovation Manager- is stuck in the middle.
Recently I was going through a report, a very helpful one, by link http://bit.ly/gWqmO7 supplied by www.innovationmanagement.se on the on the Corporate Innovation Function- key findings and detailed results, commissioned by HEC Paris.
I was also reading some views expressed by Reinhard Büscher, Head of Innovation Policy at the European Commission, http://bit.ly/eB02ZR on the role of the innovation manager (IM).
Both paint a rather dismal picture of the position of the Innovation Manager within organizations- very fuzzy not yet well defined.
