Building Blocks of Innovation

Mary Pratt wrote an interesting article on institutionalizing innovation in organizations in the July 26, 2010 print edition of Computerworld magazine.  In addition to covering examples at Verizon, Accenture, Inttra and Harrah's, Mary including the following building blocks of innovation:

  • Give employees the right to fail (this is my #1 too)
  • Spread responsibility for innovation throughout the organization
  • Develop partnerships with other departments
  • Create a central repository for ideas and experiments
  • Establish process and ownership
