The Innovation Adventure
Being an innovator is like going on an adventure – you are covering new terrain. But there are some essential steps you need to take to be successful.
How successful you are is largely determined by your motivation. There are many good reasons to do something new.
No one goes exploring without adequate preparation. This includes mapping out your ideas and testing them.
You won’t get far without money. Finding adequate sources of funding is critical.
You need the right vehicle to get to your destination. Getting the strategy, processes and business model right is critical.
Any journey requires a certain level of fitness. You will need the right level of skills and capability to go on the innovation adventure.
Innovation is not a solo venture, making contact and building relationships with the right people will be essential for your success.
It’s always good to have a guide and a support crew of people with experience and knowledge that can help you take the right path and overcome pitfalls.
When you reach the destination, it is time to celebrate. But there are many places on the way where you can recognise your achievements.
