A: TO QUICKLY CATAPULT INNOVATION:

  1. Share the vision and provide context. Engage and inspire your organization by helping them understand what’s at stake: Why is innovation so important to us (or the patient/consumer/customer)? What will innovation help us achieve? And what’s the cost of doing nothing?
  2. Invite new thinking. Genuinely welcome creativity and embrace unconventional approaches. Interact with bright minds within, and beyond, the walls of your organization. Encourage dialogue that goes beyond the here and now.
  3. Give people room to create. Protect free time on everyone’s calendars for undisrupted strategic refl ection, imaginative thought, collaborative brainstorming, and experimentation.
