What’s a Minimum Viable Innovation Team, and How Can It Drive Innovation?
By Zeeshan Sheikh, Director, Emerging Technologies Group, Everbridge
In a nutshell, there are two ways enterprises can foster innovation:
- Strategic: Create a dedicated innovation team, or
- Ad-hoc: Jump-start it with events like hackathons, idea challenges, workshops, etc.
I believe that a dedicated team ought to be created if an enterprise wants to make innovation a strategic effort. If you have no one fully focused on innovation, you’ve decided not to focus on innovation.
