Leading Innovation: Process Is No Substitute

IDEO's Ryan Jacoby discusses common innovation leadership pitfalls during an Investigatio Scholar-in-Residence lecture at NYU Poly. February 8, 2011.

Abstract: Much of the discussion on innovation has centered on the structures, systems, and tools to instill innovation processes and competencies in organizations. Yet, most such initiatives fail. What gives? Tools and processes are not enough. Innovation is fundamentally a human endeavor, one that must not only be managed, but also led. Luckily these leadership behaviors can be developed. In this talk, Ryan will, through stories, explore common innovation leadership pitfalls and share a model for how to lead innovation.
