Innovation: Find someone who love it

>> Monday, November 30, 2009

Doesn't matter how much you want to start an innovation wave if you staff it with people that doesn't want it or doesn't believe. 
Instead, find people who can't even imagine missing it.

"I love those truisms that people use to describe a situation.
You can't force a disinterested person to innovate
Now, to me, a person who loves change and new ideas, I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't leap at the chance to participate in innovation. Sign me up! But I've discovered that while "everyone" can be innovative, many people usually aren't, and there are several good reasons for that. Understanding the reasons, and identifying the people who can or will overcome the barriers, will make your innovation effort more successful.
Perhaps the easiest way to kill an innovation project is to staff it with people who don't believe it will be successful, aren't willing to effect change and who are content to wait passively for permission to proceed."
