Institutional Innovation - I Have a Dream

Edge Perspectives

Today they are an unnatural bundle of three very different and often conflicting business types: infrastructure management, product innovation and commercialization, and customer relationship businesses. Everyone talks about transformation these days, but the term is used so loosely that it’s begun to lose all meaning. I recently wrote a blog post suggesting that the ultimate test of transformation is whether the caterpillar became a butterfly – is it so different that it’s unrecognizable?

Innovation Can’t Keep the Web Fast

CSS - Tricks

Every so often, the fruits of innovation bear fruit in the form of improvements to the foundational layers of the web. As technological innovations such as HTTP/3 and 5G emerge, we must take care not to rest on our laurels and simply assume they will heal our ills once and for all. Innovation alone can’t keep the web fast because making the web fast — and keeping it that way — is the hard work we can only accomplish by working together.

Innovation Exhaustion

The Agile Manager

But even Amazon is showing signs of innovation fatigue. Blockchain could eliminate redundancies across companies, reduce fees for simple transfers, and usher in all kinds of innovation. That means that companies in ecosystems that adopt distributed ledger technology will find opportunities for innovation and gain some efficiencies, but will not be able to exploit its full potential for quite some time.

Organizing for Innovation, Part I

The Agile Manager

Innovation happens through people, not assets. Assets can be an impediment to innovation: software that is brittle, monolithic, poorly encapsulated, or high-maintenance inhibits creative new uses of it. But assets don't innovate by themselves. Innovation happens through the people you have. We saw last month that innovation is stifled where management's prevailing goal is control. Innovation

Organizing for Innovation, Part II

The Agile Manager

While it is true that it is people and not assets who innovate, the assets can enable or prohibit such innovation. InnovationLast month we defined autonomy by the classes of decisions that are devolved to the team level, specifically that the smallest organizational unit - a team - has the ability to decide what it should do, can do, and will do. Looking at it this way makes clear the sharp differences between autocratic and autonomous management philosophies.

The Would-Be Innovator's Dilemma

The Agile Manager

It is appealing to think of your trading partners and competitors seeing your company as an industry leading innovator. Unfortunately, as we saw last month, innovation is an increasingly expensive game. How do you play the innovation game to win if you don't have infinitely deep pockets to finance voyages of discovery and if you don't have the clout or the charm to convince others to finance your vision? Do You have the Financial Profile of an Innovator?

Organizing for Innovation, Part VI: Putting It All Together

The Agile Manager

Visualizing it helps explain how all these things combine to create an organization that innovates as well as operates. With enterprises increasingly feeling the heat from new companies, technologies and products, executives charge managers with extracting more innovations from the business.

Organizing for Innovation, Part III: A New Metaphor

The Agile Manager

If the organizational goal is innovation, we need the organization to have the characteristics described in the previous post in this series : it must be attuned to its environment, and it must be highly adaptable to it. Traditional organizational thinking inhibits the conditions that create innovation. To have any reasonable expectation of innovation, we need to have the right expectations of how the organization functions if we are to manage in a way that fosters innovation.

Organizing for Innovation, Part V: The Leadership Challenge

The Agile Manager

While constraints force institutional responses such as prioritization and innovation, they are also opportunities for a systemic change. Innovation Leadership Restructuring ITOrganizations of autonomous teams require a different set of behaviors than organizations that are run like a machine. People in a self-directed team form their own appreciations for what should be done, prioritize what will be done, and self-determine how it will be done.

Organizing for Innovation Part IV: Autonomy at Scale

The Agile Manager

Creating complex higher-order offerings as composites of lower-level capabilities is the “platform effect” of innovation. InnovationIt is easy to understand how a small organization of autonomous teams can function. When there are only a few teams, there is a small community, and it is simple for people to communicate with one another in both formal and informal ways. It is not difficult to see how a large organization of largely independent teams can scale.

Looking for disruption? Don't look to technology

The Agile Manager

InnovationThe chattering classes would have us believe that technology disrupts. It does not. Socio-economic conditions change to create an incongruity that is ripe for exploitation. By way of example, the technology to enable the sharing economy existed for years, but monetizing everything from spare time to the spare bedroom only became appealing when mortgages went underwater, wages stagnated, and the labor participation rate dropped.

Invest in What You Know

The Agile Manager

Innovation LeadershipEvery day, millions of people buy expensive things they don't know much about: cars and residential homes, enterprise software and entire enterprises. Having a deep pocket - or investiture by people with deep pockets - is the only qualification required for an individual to have buying authority. As we saw previously, emotions have a share - often a disproportionate one at that - in buying decisions.

How Do You Improve Network Agility?

DZone

The rise of innovative efforts made by several vendors to expand and modernize network device interfaces is improving network agility and is seen with emerging technologies such as SD-WAN, SDN, NFV, and intent-based networking. This network interface innovation stems from the use of programmable constructs like Yang, Tosca, and DevOps in an effort to move away from the CLI. Organizations are in search of improving network agility, but what exactly does this mean?

Without the Right Capital Structure, There is no Software Company Within

Can a Business Rent a Core Capability?

The Agile Manager

Innovation Strategic ITTech utilities - things that automate administration, enable communication or improve employee productivity - started as a labor expense, became a capital expense, and have now become a rent payment. This final state is an efficient economic relationship for buyer and seller. The buyer has more flattering financial statements and can negotiate for non-core services at a gross level (e.g., a single cost per employee).

Each is a new take on an old theme, echoing one part of the contradiction that has riddled every business with a captive technology department: we want to minimize how much we spend on IT, and we want IT to be a source of innovation. Treating them as utilities relegates them to being costs, starving them for investment and suppressing the innovative punch they should pack. Innovation Leadership Restructuring IT Strategic IT
