What are your peers doing to move the innovation needle?

picture of speedometerWe worked with a group of 15 innovation executives recently to develop this list of “Innovation Approaches.” It attempts to capture what innovation leaders are doing when they are setting strategy; trying to change company culture; building capabilities for cultivating and testing new ideas; or investing in promising startups. Obviously, not everyone pursues or should pursue all of these approaches, but this was an attempt to create a comprehensive list of what we see companies doing — and what innovation executives tell us they’re doing. (You can download this list as a printable PDF.)

We tried to list these things in terms of “degree of difficulty” — some of the easier steps/approaches are listed first in each category, with the more challenging things listed further down. Which have you explored…embarked upon…decided not to do?

And what’d we miss? Feel free to add a comment below…
