Managing Innovation as a Business - Is ‘Concepts Portfolio’ the middle ground between creativity and finance?


As the average corporate life span reduces, innovation becomes vital to survival and growth. Most corporate boards want to get this right, but only 20% of CEOs believe that the investments made in innovation are paying off*. A few questions come to mind when thinking about increasing the return on investment:

a) What exactly does Innovation, especially from market offer perspective, mean? Is it only about new disruptive products/services or about regular iterations to current products/services as well?

b) Can I simply not appoint an innovation team to scan the market for the latest technologies to develop new products/services and I will be done?

c) Can I really manage innovation i.e. operationalize innovation, and make it pervasive throughout the organisation for regular and more predictable output?

Innovation has Never Been More Complex; or Rewarding

In the past, innovative businesses had it easy. The pace of change was much slower and first mover advantage was, as a result, more important. Not so today. Let’s face it: even with patent protection, products are largely becoming commoditized. If a brand launches a cool new product it’s now just a matter of months before competitors are able to launch similar products. Globalization and technology innovation is, by and large, commoditizing consumer products.

Brands are reacting to this change by innovating in a different way; namely: through business model and service innovation. Today products are less important in delivering value to businesses; it’s the service wraps and ancillary revenues that count.

But it can also be pretty aggravating, especially if those articles are written about your competition. Even worse, if you failed to get the same idea off the ground two years ago!

PwC reported five-year growth projections for top innovators run beyond 60% but sit around just 20-35% for average innovators, so it’s no wonder most CEOs are pushing their organizations to figure out how to make better innovation happen more effectively.
