Why does disruptive innovation seem to take so long?
And why don't the usual levers we deploy to speed up our innovation efforts--like pushing more resources, more frequent check-ins, and tighter deadlines--seem to deliver results? Should organizations resign themselves to the fact that innovation is a slow process and there's no way to move faster to learn if an idea may be a success?
No. There are ways to accelerate disruptive innovation, argues Scott Anthony, managing partner at innovation firm Innosight and author of The Little Black Book of Innovation. In this interactive Harvard Business Review webinar, Anthony describes a framework for improving the speed of moving ideas from paper to market. He describe ways to accelerate experimentation, target funding, and get the right leaders in charge of projects.
