Innovation: my definition Innovation is the process and/or output of creating and realizing value from that which is new. ©Linda Gorchels
Where does value come from? Value = ©Linda Gorchels Perceived benefits Perceived costs
Value can come from … New Products or Services ©Linda Gorchels
Value can come from … New Processes ©Linda Gorchels
Value can come from … New Business Models ©Linda Gorchels
How does culture come in? What is an innovative culture? And why is it important? ©Linda Gorchels
Innovation is linked to culture Innovation is the process and/or output of creating and realizing value from that which is new. ©Linda Gorchels Culture is “the way we do things around here.” It is how innovation “happens” (or not …).
Why is that important? • Growth rates in many mature industries have stagnated • Customer value propositions are becoming less clear • Almost all sales are coming from existing offerings ©Linda Gorchels
Why is that important? • New entrants are disrupting the status quo of incumbents • Organizations may (unknowingly) become less responsive to market shifts ©Linda Gorchels
Why is that important? • Globalization and competency mismatch create an urgency to do a better job of organizational learning and unlearning ©Linda Gorchels
Why is that important? • Society is challenging long-held assumptions ©Linda Gorchels
Is there one “best” culture? Innovation is the process and/or output of creating and realizing value from that which is new. ©Linda Gorchels There are many types of innovation that create value – and different cultures to build them.

Dan Pink - Motivation • Note the different impacts of incentives for creative versus routine tasks by viewing Dan Pink’s speech at TED
Henry Mintzberg on culture “Culture is the soul of the organization — the beliefs and values, and how they are manifested. I think of the structure as the skeleton, and as the flesh and blood. And culture is the soul that holds the thing together and gives it life force.” ©Linda Gorchels
Positive aspects of culture Positive • social glue • boundary-defining • common sense of identify • facilitates commitment ©Linda Gorchels
Negative aspects of culture Negative • can be a barrier to change • can be a barrier to diversity • can be dysfunctional for new business models ©Linda Gorchels
Multi-functional teams versus Multi-faceted individuals ©Linda Gorchels
