Creating an internal innovation culture

#12 Creating an internal innovation culture

Aug 12, 2021

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. For example, the Silicon Valley innovation culture was allegedly sparked by Robert Noyce, one of the Intel Founders. And as it evolved, different subcultures in the various companies evolved on their own. Most innovation cultures had been stimulated top-down by leaders such as Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, Gordon Moore, and many others. And while there are internal movements to become more innovative and embracing innovation from within, usually those initiatives die in the various management layers.

In this Innovative Minds event, gain insights into how to stimulate innovation culture-building from the middle up so it can flow down and how Innovation Leaders can best support it.

Innovation Leadership for C-Level and Board Members

#13 Innovation Leadership for C-Level and Board Members

Sep 9, 2021

In the past 25 years, the vast majority of groundbreaking innovations were delivered by startups. Nearly none by corporate innovation centers. When getting disrupted, the corporation will initially lose 20 to 50% market share and 50% or even more on value. The loss of market share is not equal to revenue loss because disrupters increase the market and take almost all of the new market share. Innovation is rarely just a new product; it is almost always connected to different experiences, business models, and customer interaction models. Not knowing what is going on makes it so utterly difficult to compete. It is time for Innovation Leadership to make a change to stay competitive in the market.

In this Innovative Minds event, our CEO and founder of two companies today in the billion-dollar range will talk about the little yet defining differences and why looking at startups and how they work makes absolutely no sense. Copying startup behavior, creating fancy innovation labs, and organizing playful innovation sessions, while top unicorns fight with relentless execution to become no.1 in a market, are some of the reasons for not being successful.
