I was recently asked to partake in a discussion with a newly formed innovation team at an ASX20 company.
What started out as an informal discussion quickly had me on my feet, white-boarding away and firing on all cognitive cylinders as I talked, or drew my way, through the different things large bureaucratic organisations need to consider when it comes to the big hairy audacious mission of creating an environment that truly supports disruptive innovation.
After babbling on for a little while, it was question time and one question in particular prompted me to write this post - “if you come back here in a year how will you determine whether or not we’ve been successful?”
So in this episode of Fast Fix Friday, I bring you success metrics for corporate innovation programs and teams.
Your host and occasional cybernetic organism, Steve Glaveski, is committed to helping people better navigate the growing uncertainty that technology change brings, in order to survive, thrive, create more value for the world and lead more fulfilling lives.
Steve is the CEO and co-founder of innovation accelerator Collective Campus, founder of children's entrepreneurship program Lemonade Stand, author of Amazon best-seller The Innovation Manager's Handbook and the Wiley book, Employee to Entrepreneur, investor in blockchain based fractional property investment platform Konkrete and is a keynote speaker and startup advisor.
When not fighting T-1000s Steve can be found in the gym, hiking, skating at the beach, attempting standup comedy, at a heavy metal show or socially lubricating at a whisky bar.
