Building a successful and enduring innovation program requires that you identify the barriers that may inhibit progress — ideally, before you smash into them at full speed. Working to predict and mitigate the key barriers can make the business more accepting of new ideas. Below are eleven of the most common barriers we’ve seen in large companies.

Developed by Aaron Proietti, former SVP of Innovation at Transamerica.
