Too Many Cooks Spoil The Broth: Roles in Inter-Organizational Innovation

Size, Shape, and Attitude Define Success. But what is the optimal number of inter organizational members when it comes to breaking the mold and pushing innovation. Surprisingly the number is 4.



In Too Many Cooks Spoil The Broth: Roles in Inter-Organizational Innovation a substantial sample size and effective team size matrix was created to cross reference and integrate the key players in innovation success: Power promoter; Expert promoter; Process promoter; Technological gatekeeper; Relationship promoter. An excellent assessment of personalities necessary.

But What of Service Engineers – How Does Design Effect Success?

The factors overlooked are not complicated and here we breakdown the outcomes of 14 case studies for success in service engineering for design success
 


Industries such as entertainment, traveling and hospitality, personal care, information, and communications in Assessing Creativity Of Design Projects: Criteria For The Service Engineering Field all share a basic tenant which is that measuring the quanitative factors for service engineering design success is a factor of perceived customer acceptance of pre-determined solutions and social conformity. Baring the rocket engine efficiency situations, Deisgn for Service Engineering  success is client driven. What the client says, goes.

What 4 Factors Drive the Entire Innovation Process? Limiters. Here’s How To Break Them.


Designers focus on creativity but there is more. Limiting factors and risk are what stop good ideas from becoming great ideas. But there are ways to overcome barriers. 


Barriers can be self imposed, they can be governmental and often regulatory but often it is the human factors that can impact design and innovation more than any other factor. In Perspectives On Design Creativity And Innovation Research a full breakdown of human factors, technological factors, economic factors and relagatory factors are compared so as to see their interactions and the ways these interactions can assist or defeat the capabilities of design and new product initiatives.

Look where Innovation Would Disappear: That’s Where They Can Live


Looking for breakthroughs is often the place where you are sure that they can’t be any slower or glacier. The US Navy. But that was before, before a radical group was not only given the chance to try new things but also forced the establishment to let them.


In How to Build A Culture of Originality, we see the underpinnings of not only the personality of innovators at the US Navy but also an organization that previously might shun such behaviors, opening possibilities for small groups to try new things. These Innovation Cells written extensively by Burkard Wördenweber, and Uwe Weissflog has even permeated the Navy who has created their own Innovation Cell program. These cells, operating at a highly, seemingly disconnected manner, are able through periodic coordination with engineering, R&D, design and operations to not only create rapidly morphing problem solving. In thinking that where innovations go to die might be a place to avoid, the mathematical law of absolute value might be the place where the most benefit can occur.
