Innovation Strategies - Moving From Nice-to-Have to Essential

Like all other aspects of human capital management, the decades-old innovation field is beginning to feel the positive impact of a greater focus on people in business. Click here for the show. 
YouTubeIn this Enterprise Engagement Alliance Youtube show, three experts share what management needs to know to make effective decisions related to innovation strategies and implementation. Stephen Shapiro, Innovation Instigator, 24/7 Innovation, has decades of front-line experience creating and providing advisory services on Innovation. Arthur Fox is Founder and Chief Innovation Leader at Innovation Global Network, whose education platform is based on his own hands-own experience with innovation.  Ira M. Ozer, is President, Engagement Partners, which has helped organizations address the people elements of innovation for over two decades.
With so much disruption in every field, organizations that fail to implement an organic innovation strategy put their businesses at risk, the panelists agree. 
Key insights include:
• Innovation is undergoing a new growth period because of a greater strategic focus on people in business.
• Innovation strategies are highly measurable when effectively designed to create a sustainable culture focused on problem-solving and addressing key organizational objectives. 
• Strategies will achieve the best results when the CEO and leadership passionately embrace the importance of fostering a culture of problem-solving and opportunity creation, but much progress can be made by middle-management-led programs when properly designed. 
• Design considerations include: having clear goals and objectives and a written plan with a champion but with accountability built into the jobs of all management; focusing the Innovation effort on defined challenges or objectives rather than the old suggestion box approach; baking innovation into the culture through communication, training, rewards and recognition, rather than episodically; having a transparent policy for reviewing, acting upon, recognizing, and rewarding ideas, and measuring the tangible and intangible return-on-investment.
