In the popular imagination, innovation is about brilliant people with brilliant ideas, doggedly pursuing their dream and breaking through every obstacle that stands in their way. The reality, however, is that innovation is fundamentally a team sport.
Sure, one person can come up with an idea, but an idea is only a beginning. After a commitment to a great idea, the full nature of the innovation challenge becomes clear. Somehow, companies have to tackle two conflicting tasks simultaneously: building something new and sustaining excellence in what already exists.
This requires more than just general, feel-good teamwork. It requires a team that is structured in a very particular way. Unfortunately, most companies aren’t familiar with what these teams look like. Like a newcomer to the baseball playing world, they have little idea, if any, about the roles on the team. They have no idea what the pitcher, catcher, infielders, and outfielders do.
In this webcast, Chris Trimble will outline exactly how to build the right team for every innovation initiative. He will also talk about how his new book, How Stella Saved the Farm, can be used as an instigator of productive conversations about what it really takes to make innovation happen.
