But the majority of CEOs globally are dissatisfied with their innovation capability and resulting performance. So, how do you turn rhetoric into innovation-led action and behaviour? When creating innovative organisations the first step is to acknowledge that innovation is no longer about a ‘department’ or the sole responsibility of a specific team. Innovation is a capability that needs to be harnessed; it’s a capability that needs to be enterprise-wide.
The challenge for CEOs and senior teams is how to build a shared understanding of what it takes to innovate and more importantly, what it takes to build a culture of innovation, an ‘innovation ecosystem’ where game-changing innovation capability simply becomes part of ‘how’ you do things.
