The mysteries of innovation culture: if these ideas are so good... why are they so hard to implement?
The adoption of innovation methods and design thinking has left many companies with numerous ideas and ambition for creating change, but little in the way of implementation and measurable results. We conducted in-depth interviews with innovation leaders at over 50 companies in a variety of industries to understand the barriers that prevented “innovative” ideas from being implemented. We present the findings of this research, including best practices, as a means to help large companies and organizations get more value out of their design and innovation efforts.
