“The Implementation Dilemma”
Customer-centered insights are becoming more commonplace among across industries as design thinking pervades business today and similar research methodologies are applied to similar business challenges. With large, established organizations shifting to incorporate service design practices and build their internal innovation capability to drive growth, customer-centered ideas are becoming easier to find as well. What continues to be uncommon is the large organization that can effectively get these ideas out to the market in a repeatable and consistent way. Companies are built to be optimized and efficient, making quick and inexpensive development of new ideas challenging to the operation. The winning companies will be those that can effectively evaluate ideas, select the right ones, and get them to market faster than the competition. The single biggest challenge for these large organizations is not identifying customer needs, or coming up with ideas, or hiring a Chief Innovation Officer, but rather the effective building and launching of new growth initiatives. Within an established, core business, there are deliberate approaches to implementation effective in driving incremental change but result in outcomes harmful to getting new customer-driven growth initiatives out to market in the right form. This situation creates the Implementation Dilemma: Should leaders take these customer-focused ideas and apply their traditional way of delivering or should they create a new environment for new ideas delivery? The focus of this talk is on this second approach. That means the real work in innovation is on the back-end: making ideas real.
