An Innovation Organisation is one where innovation runs through everything that happens, much like blood runs through the human body. It is a robust organisation – one that is ready for anything that comes along, one that succeeds while others struggle, one that remains at least one step ahead while others follow. There are six key aspects of an Innovation Organisation:

Strategy – getting innovation into the heart of the longer-term strategy as well as ensuring it is on the agenda on a day-to-day basis.

Culture – creating an environment where people can experiment and take sensible risks.

Thinking – enabling people to break free from the constraints of conventional wisdom and think in a more flexible manner.

Infrastructure – creating a robust framework, and the necessary resources, to support innovation activity.

Capability – liberating that enormous, latent, creative ability that lies inside everyone.

Momentum – getting real energy behind innovation activity so that it becomes self-sustaining.
