Building
Innovation Teams

Expert advisory from practitioners at work in Silicon Valley today

Why Build Innovation Teams?

How should corporations approach innovation? Models abound, with each one recommending a different course of action. Lean methodologies emphasize speed; the three horizons framework focuses on segmentation. Intrapreneurship, meanwhile, prioritizes internal R&D efforts. Different approaches will suit different organizations but what all these frameworks agree on is that corporations need dedicated innovation teams. It is only when groups within an enterprise are free from the demands of core business that new concepts can be truly tested. With an innovation team, a company empowers itself to create its own future, rather than being subject to the unpredictable forces of emerging technologies and industry disruption.
