Spawning innovative ideas is easy. Implementing and diffusing them to cross the "O" gap (getting them into Operations) is difficult. How do you spur innovation crossing the O Gap? Moving from idea to execution and implementation in a large organization?
Questions on my mind:
Q1 - How do you create a culture that enables innovation through an organization?
Q2 - How can you begin building your own innovative culture?
Q3 - How do you move ideas from the test lab to the frontlines of operations?
Q4 - Are there any large companies you've heard of succeeding at this in their innovation programs, or is it all just nimble small start-ups?
