My post over at HBR.org on how to ruin your innovation process seems to have struck a nerve. Among other things, a whole host of people have offered their own lists of how to get innovation wrong. I was rather taken with this one, which lists four ways to mess up innovation. In summary:
- failing to assign responsibilities
- Fixing on ROI too early
- failing to draw the right boundaries
- Fragmenting your effort
We could probably do a whole encyclopedia on messing up innovation!
