Often we think of innovating as totally new thoughts, “Blue Sky” thinking. I believe that innovating is often about making a smaller improvement to how things work now or about getting to the heart of a problem and solving it rather than managing it. Disciplined minds and courageous hearts and a crystal ball on your desk! Improving anything can be quite daunting on your own – it can feel like you need to follow a pathway rigidly or make sure you don’t think too creatively, you can hear other people in your mind asking you whether you are getting diverted from the real issue – are you solving a problem or creating one?
Invite me over for a coffee and some cake and lets build a model. We can come up with a way of innovating that will allow you to carry on running your successful organisation; while I get out the maps and charts and start to help design the future for you. Once we think we have nearly got there I can help you fund it, find the right partners and take the rest of your organisation with you.
