The Innovation Core

Innovation has often been positioned at the very core of business success.

Peter Drucker asserted that it was one of only two functions required of business.

While the relationship and importance of innovation to business is not new, there has been renewed interest in the topic and the criticality of it to business.

“Business has only two functions — marketing and innovation” – Peter Drucker

Organizations are being challenged to re-think how innovation is managed by advances in technology and collaboration. Vinton Cerf, “the father of the internet”, stated it succinctly, “By placing intelligence at the edges rather than control in the middle of the network, the Internet has created a platform for innovation.”

Most recently, the Obama administration has positioned innovation not only as a requirement for business success, but also as a critical component to economic recovery for an entire nation.

“The United States led the world’s economies in the 20th Century because we led the world in innovation.
Today, the competition is keener; the challenge is tougher; and that is why innovation is more important than ever.” – President Barack Obama

Management in Action

Despite the lofty esteem and attention paid to innovation, for many organizations it is unfortunately managed as nothing more than the elusive holy grail – a noble goal that is poorly understood, often not proactively managed, relegated to a few and left to serendipity and discovery.

Innovation is not managed as a process, and organizations fail to purposely leverage technology in order to facilitate, promote and accelerate innovation.

“During a week long "Proving Ground" for Information Architecture and Taxonomy, Dan added delightful perspectives from his incredibly diverse knowledge to help illustrate the classic techniques and lighten the rather dry science of IA. In the classes and workshops I learned that formality and formula are a first step and beyond that it is about context and connecting ideas. The Proving Ground experience has helped me in several ECM, information management, and data governance projects. Since the class I’ve followed Dan's blogs and podcasts that prove he is a master at connecting the science to the art, and knows how to get to the heart of managing enterprise content and knowledge.”
