Getting Innovation Done

Larsson, Andreas LU ; Carleton, Tamara; Cockayne, William and Bill, Susanna LU (2010) In Management of Technology p.7-9
Abstract
Creating innovations that successfully meet societal challenges on a grand scale involves great vision, great ideas and great execution. While coming up with a plethora of ideas is undoubtedly critical to innovation, many individuals, teams and organizations are lacking insight into how to practically move forward beyond the great idea without losing touch with the overall vision. This article describes a workshop-based approach that allows innovation teams to move back and forth between divergent and convergent activities – keeping the solution space open enough to allow identification of innovation opportunities within a broader vision, while still making practical progress towards bringing vision to reality.
