A new post on Fast Co. Design pushes back against the notion of innovation as impossible to control without stifling. As part of a larger conversation around the value of innovation consultants, the author argues:
just as every organization is different, there is no single model for how a company should build their innovation capabilities. But we encourage business leaders everywhere to recognize innovation as a discipline, believe that reliable and repeatable methods do exist, and invest in building their own capabilities—with or without the help of consultants.
It’s an interesting debate. What do you think — can innovation be managed?
