Expanding the Innovation Horizon Global CEO Study 2006
FYI, the Expanding the Innovation Horizon Global CEO Study 2006 is out and available from IBM.
Joyce Wycoff of the Innovation Network sent out some highlights:
- Emphasis is on external partnerships, broadening the mix of innovation (more emphass on business models), and removing barriers. The elevator summary: Think broadly, act personally, manage the mix of innovation.
- One interesting graphic is Figure 11 on page 22 which shows that Outperformers use a higher percentage of external ideas. The collaboration gap (importance versus extent of collaboration and partnering) is a significant insight. Anyone who helps organizations cross the IP barrier should be able to do well in this field.
I will be reading this 64 page report over next several weeks and put in my two cents :)
