#15 – Your CEO’s innovation expectations
Broadcasted Dec 7
If you work in an enterprise innovation center of a company with let’s say 25 Billion in revenue, what do you think your CEO is expecting? An innovation that has a potential for €100 Million? That would be 0.4% of the current revenue. Would that be transformational? Would that replace a declining market potential? Would that make any difference? So sorry – no it would not.
In this webinar, Your CEO’s innovation expectations, we will talk about expectations and how YOU can meet them. There are several steps how you can learn what the company you work for needs and how you and your team can meet those needs. Don’t get irritated about the significance, the scope and the magnitude.
#14 – Genuine vs. Pseudo Innovation
Broadcasted Nov 9
The demarcation between Genuine Innovation and Improvements has been blurred in order to make improvements look like innovation. Now, it turned out, not only it is misleading, it is a personal career disaster for innovation managers once they move on to another company with no results to show.
Let’s look at GENUINE INNOVATION, its characteristics and major differences to improvement. There is no question, product, service or experience improvements are of strategic importance to keep the distance to the competition. But it is not an innovation, which is typically built from the ground up new, uses latest design technology, latest production methods, advanced sales and marketing techniques and most advanced customer experience techniques. INNOVATION is far more than just an improved product.

#12 – Creating an Internal Innovation Culture
Broadcasted Aug 12
An innovation culture can be found in countries, in regions, in companies, in families. And wherever it is, it has evolved based on some initial successes.
The Silicon Valley innovation culture was allegedly sparked by Robert Noyce, one of the Intel Founders. And as it evolved different subcultures evolved, where the company culture at Oracle is rather different from the one at Tesla. And those cultures are very different from the cultures at Siemens or at Samsung. Many innovation cultures had been stimulated top-down but not all. There is also a growing number of internal movements to become more innovative and embracing innovation from within.
