The quest for Systematic Innovation

  • Innovation is aptly described as Mind to Market – an idea or an invention does not qualify to be called an innovation till it does not find acceptance from the customers.
  • Innovation management is the systematic process of creation and delivery of value to customers.
  • To perceive a higher value the customer must receive a higher set of benefits at a lower cost and with lesser harmful effects relative to the competitive offerings in the marketplace. The customer’s definition of value evolves with the progress made by society, technology and industry.
  • As organizations evolve they often find themselves in situations where their processes are out-of-sync with customer’s dynamic interpretation of value. The symptomatic outcomes of this unhappy situation are flagging or flat revenues and reduction in margins from products and services.
  • Business Process Innovation is management’s endeavor to catalyze the business systems (or process groups) and align the creation and delivery of value to the dynamic expectations of customers.
  • A well honed business process innovation system can spot the faltering performance levels of existing processes to trigger improvement initiatives and also identify opportunities for designing new processes by reporting the increased stress levels in existing workflows.

  • Intelligence Quotient (I.Q.) may influence the pace of the thinking. High creativity may influence the variety of out-of-the-box ideas generated by a person. However, the systematic process of Innovation channelizes the creative energies of an individual in a purposeful manner to generate relevant and useful out-of-the-box ideas of value to the society.
  • Random idea generation through brainstorming is being replaced with the systematic approach to innovative thinking. The innovative thinking requires the mastery of specific skills applied in a systematic manner.
  • The market pressure to differentiate and generate revenues has created an industry need to teach and develop the core skills of innovators that would enable professionals to develop out-of-the-box thinking.
