Innovate to Thrive You have to do something either better or different to provide value. Good news: innovation is what we do best! Now it is time to become conscious of how and why. Competition : 4 Competition The global value chain - for the first time the entire world is now competing. The World is Flat by Thomas Freedman describes what this means and is doing to us. Where does the US fit? Where do engineers fit? Part of the answer is new business models. Innovation Types : 5 Innovation Types There are many types of innovation. But the two main themes appear to be business and technological. More wealth has been generated in the last decade because of innovation in business models.

There is a shortage of innovation managers. Managers manage better with conscious models. Innovation advocates promote and practice innovation as a powerful way to solve problems. They need help. SVII, a 501 C3 was founded to support innovation advocates by promulgating better innovation practices. Innovators and Innovation Managers : 7 Innovators and Innovation Managers Innovators and Innovation Managers are not the same. It is not even clear if the word management applies. But conscious models are needed. Management Mechanisms : 8 Management Mechanisms Air Cover Skunk Works Degrees of Freedom Innovation Indicators vs. Metrics : 9 Every organization has higher priorities than innovation. These always seem to come first. Every organization needs more and better innovation. There is a clear direct path. Improve innovation management of high priority initiatives to create innovation culture. Innovation Critical Initiatives : 10 Innovation Critical Initiatives All organizations have ... high priority initiatives. Some critically depend ... upon innovation. These are ... Innovation Critical Initiatives. A sure path to morer innovation ... better innovation management of high priority initiatives. Direct paths to improving innovation Common Innovation Critical Initiatives : 11 Common Innovation Critical Initiatives Change is required; it is the common denominator! Adapt! Innovation Society : 12 Innovation Society Connecting the bottom up ... Innovation Culture ... with the top down. Innovation Dashboard : 13 Innovation Dashboard Indicators of Innovation Indicator Observers Shared Perspective There has to be a way for everyone to see what you mean by innovation! Innovation Culture : 14 Innovation Culture The better way to ensure a sustainable innovation environment is through conscious innovation culture. Collaboration across Boundaries : 15 Collaboration across Boundaries Departments Company Industry Regional International Innovation Alliances Collaborative Innovation Alliances can solve any problem Collaborative Innovation : 16 Collaborative Innovation Most innovation is now a group thing. There are still lone rangers but fewer. Collaboration now spans departments, organizations, companies and nations. “Not invented here” no longer rules. Collaboration and integration are now the norm.
