Design and Innovation Does Not Mean "Now" or Else. But How?

Mechanism for incremental NPD efforts is the assumption that the NPD efforts are based on "Now" and not a the time honored R&D model of investigative exploration.

 



With Innovate or Die - Is that a Fact? we see that skipping over the foundations of managing spontaneous ideas causes penthouses built on moving sand where as creating a long term innovation and R&D pipeline is the path to sustained market dominance.

You Want Radial Design? Radical Innovation?

Through five case studies in radical innovation development, The Nexus of Corporate Entrepreneurship and Radical Innovation concludes that proactiveness, risk taking and autonomy are stimulants where as aggressiveness has a negative effect on development and performance.



An excellent example and framework for Innovation and disruptive design launches also comes from the work by Roberto Verganti in his seminal work "Design-Driven Innovation" where we can see the necessity for larger and more time consuming efforts to shepard into existence more forward thinking design initiatives. Such an example is the Topiade Moving Pin Building Fa├žade design completed in 2006 and launched in Russia in 2014 at the Sochi Olympics more than 7 years ahead of schedule.

Adopting Designs, Tools, Engineering, Innovation: It's All In The Team

The issue with an adoption, a plant, a friend, a child, and entirely new effort for a firm is the way that the innovation is integrated with the overall firm itself.


The dilemma of when to bring it into fuition, how to get others to also adopt it and champion is well documented in “The Dynamics of Factors Affecting the Adoption of Innovations” providing necessary tools to make innovations happen while avoiding the disadvantage of facing the risks of failure.
