How do you create that start-up feeling in your company?
Instinctively we know innovation and R&D “departments” are outdated. We know that most of the structure and processes behind them are counterintuitive, and their output, nothing less than futile attempts to jolt a company out of organizational limbo. Many of them and discontinued, or worse, kept alive by artificial departmental respiration only to succumb to future budget constraints.
So, how do you rekindle your innovation efforts? How can you start collaborating with the frontrunners of innovation – the agile and risk-taking startups – and thus inspire dramatically new thinking within your own organization? And how do you attract the right teams to join you, and encourage employees to co-create and learn from startups?
