Innovation is the fuel that drives growth and wealth creation for the technology industry – it is considered one of the few sustainable competitive advantages. It often is listed as a top organizational priority, but it is surprising how few companies are satisfied with their ability to measure innovation output, implement a dependable innovation operating system, or overcome structural or cultural barriers to innovation.
Our experience and the results we’ve generated with leading technology companies confirm that much of innovation can be treated as a “factory” – an operation that requires talent, process, and repeatable systems to create a sustainable capability.
