In the recent Innovation Cafe by Hugo de Sousa, I've shared five best practices for corporate innovation in turbulent times:

  • Don't try to weather the storm by locking yourself away.
  • Accept that current reality is different.
  • Relentlessly focus on the customer and value creation.
  • Focus creativity on revenue generating innovations; cost reduction is a side effect of pursuing value creation.
  • Take care of your own and of your peers' well-being.

Following that we've discussed a number of topics, some being how to organise for best innovation performance, how to measure innovation, metered funding, corporate venturing, what does it take for true disruptive innovation to happen...
