Innovation is a process…

Jim Stikeleather in this Managementexchange article argues that Innovation is a process. He says it is no longer a stretch goal that you give to employees, it has to be built in their day to day work. They do not have to stop after an Aha moment and get back to routine work, but have to move on to work on creating the next Aha moment.

Incorporating the Innovation goals within the operational goals of an organization is a challenge that not many organizations have explored. It is not going to be easy, specially for those who do it the first time, but it would be rewarding. It may take a few iterations to get it right, but eventually this is what will ensure that there is sustained effort going into innovation across the organization.
