The panel discussion focuses on the innovator’s need for a stronger sense of pathway – in other words, how does the innovation journey unfold from the first attempts at systematic innovation and culture change onwards? We look at three phases of an innovation maturity model to help innovation managers to orientate their activities and improve the team’s capabilities.
The discussion is based on Haydn Shaughnessy’s paper,”Growing Adaptive Innovation through an Innovation Maturity Model,” which can be found here. Furthermore, background to real options thinking as well as platform and ecosystem business models are covered, as described in detail in The Elastic Enterprise by Haydn Shaughnessy and Nicolas Vitalari.
