This post is terrific for a couple of reasons. One is that everybody always talks about innovating being a panacea for every corporate problem. Two is that understanding some scenarios where innovation would make things worse or handicapped efforts before they even start is as useful as understanding the best ways to innovate.
The three scenarios that I found most interesting are:
- When your clients are even more conservative than you are
- When everybody says: “Innovate!”, but no one wants to be responsible
- When everyone fears failure
Check out the 21 situations when innovation may not be the best idea.
