Why Innovation Stalls Out – A look inside the research

When we’re working to advance innovation we’re up against more than challenging status quo. We’re up against how we think. This shows up in 3 ways:

• We need to productively harness individual creativity to fuel the novelty needed to drive innovation

• We need to overcome a culture and habits that value critical thinking and wants to bring things to closure – quickly

• We need to work together to tackle challenges that come with innovation

Here’s a little-known secret about innovation. When faced with a challenge, research shows we all engage in a universal creative process.

We all have thinking preferences for moving through this process which act as an energy wave powering us through, or causing us to stall out. These are our innovation superpowers and kryptonite. Regardless of the innovation approach you’re using, these preferences have an impact on the thinking and energy you naturally bring to the table. And, they have an impact on how you can move innovation through the organization. With awareness of these preferences, you and your team can power up your efforts and engage in innovation much more effectively.

This webinar will touch on a year-long global research study sponsored by FourSight LLC and BridgePoint Effect with Innov8rs. This research sought to answer the question – “Who are the Innovators in Organizations?” The insights from this research sheds light on why innovation stalls out, and how to overcome the frustration of meeting everyone’s needs in the process.

The 8 C’s: A framework for driving repeatable, data-driven innovation

Very few companies are sustainably growing in America and all over the world. In 2019 if you don’t own customer’s pipeline, directly manage your relationship with your customer and do not intimately know your customer through data then your company is becoming increasing reliant on those who do and is therefore dying.

This has a knock-on affect of negatively impacting the middle class by reducing wages and employee benefits while encouraging companies to buy back stock rather than invest in growth (middle class stagnation = rise in racism, fascism, xenophobia, isolationism, and basically most of the insanity that plagues the news today).

So West hired an independent research team and spent 15K hours analyzing the fastest growing companies (at least for the last 5 years = FAANG), best practice by department, innovation tools and emerging technology, writing briefs on all. West is giving all this away with a framework that he developed (8C’s) to help companies grow again.
