Un-Managing Innovation !!!

Many times when we think/speak about Innovation, we only think of a great idea(which would be the solution to an existing problem) and the thought process that goes behind in implementing the innovation.

But you can be innovative or think innovatively, only when the atmosphere is innovative or people promote innovation.The other factors that could foster innovation are : Good team work, management that itself thinks laterally and innovatively, office that in itself is innovative......

This reminds me of the Thoughtworks office in Bangalore which was the venue for the BarCamp Bangalore 2.0 and the open office environment(ie no cubicles) itself suggested "Innovation" biggrin

In fact while googling for the same,I came across an excellent presentation which touches each and every corner of Innovation !!!



My personal favourites from the presentation are :
  1. Myths of innovation : Slides 13-19
  2. Composition of an innovative team : Creator , Catalyst and Champion (Slide 25)
  3. Killers of Innovation : Slide 28 (Best and highly realistic)
  4. Creative work environments : We need more of these!!! (Slides 43 - 48)
  5. Myths of motivation : Slides 54 - 56
  6. Promoting Instrinsic motivation : Refer the following and Slide 60

Innovation is not doing everything. But saying NO to everything and doing what is really important.
