A CEO’s Innovation Mandate
Giving Innovation teams a perspective and purpose
Thousands of innovation teams across all industries and from all corners of the world struggle to innovate “something”. Humans develop tens of thousands of ideas every year. But an idea is not an innovation that has any serious market impact that is relevant to an enterprise. After speaking with some hundred enterprise innovation teams, the call for an innovation mandate rose above all discussions.

An Innovation Meta Strategy
Providing directions, meaning and objectives
Once a purpose and objective for a serious innovation engagement is given, an executive can develop a strategy to get there. As the name indicates, an INNOVATION META STRATEGY is an overarching innovation strategy that gives an innovation team the necessary guidance to identify innovation opportunities match them with the corporate directions, and once decided, develop the actual and individual innovation strategy they can go after.

“We need to be more innovative”
It’s easier said than done. How will we be more innovative? Who takes the lead?
It is a C-Level responsibility to indicate the purpose, direction, meaning, and expected outcomes of an innovation effort. Knowing that we drawn in ideas and knowing there are major problems to be solved, don’t let the teams hunt for random ideas but address a major problem. Give the team a well-defined innovation mandate.
