The vanguard paves the road for the main force.
Sun Tzu advised to have the best and most talented troops in the vanguard, to boost the morale of the following force.
If a general assembles a poor vanguard, and they end up routed, they are risking their whole force falling apart in disarray.
Think of your your corporate innovation units, teams, and projects as your organisation's vanguard.
Select the best people, give them the best tools, provide clear guidance, and offer support when needed.
The more they advance, the more will the rest of the organisation rally behind them.
So, who will make your innovation vanguard?
