Chapter 8: Innovation Has A Much Bigger Role To Play
I discuss how the innovation process needs to evolve to tackle the most pressing complex and ‘wicked problems’ facing us today whilst discussing the key enablers and barriers to corporate innovation practice. I introduce a conceptual re-framing of the innovation process to move away from simple customer centricity, to considering complex ecosystems as the source of innovation problem solving effort. I hope the work inspires others to take up the challenge of advancing the innovation field of practice towards the grand challenges ahead.
The wider book addresses the need for global business leaders to re-think the broader creative destruction consequences new innovation can bring. Driven by environmental, social and ecosystems thinking on the practice of innovation itself, each author provides a critical lens and perspective on corporate innovation moving forward today.
