While innovation is a hot topic in many organizations and institutions, there are few in which innovation is embedded and considered essential. For most people in most organizations, innovation is "nice to have", rather than "must have", and requires continual initiatives to keep it alive. Nevertheless, it is becoming increasingly unacceptable to ignore or dismiss innovation as unimportant. What issues determine whether innovation is turning a corner?

There are a variety of aspects of innovation which we might discuss, (versus their counterparts), including:

  • purpose (vs. pastime?)
  • effectiveness (vs. efficiency)
  • strategy (vs. tactics)
  • exploration (vs. production)

and, probably, many more.

Let’s discuss your views about the year ahead in innovation during #innochat at 12 noon Eastern time on Thursday 4th January 2018 on Twitter.
