With increased global competition and reduced product lifecycles, quickly converting ideas into marketable products has become necessity. What’s more, ideas may come from anyone from value chain, from customers to employees. In today’s environment of crowd sourcing it’s smart to decentralize innovation. And it’s not just the breakthrough ideas that matter – evolutionary and incremental quality improvement ideas can also have long lasting impact on the ways businesses transform.

Clearly, superior quality and innovative products or services drive success. In fact, doing nothing may lead to lost market share, missed market opportunities, or losing out to the competition. It’s no surprise that many leaders are treating Innovation as an intrinsic part of their business strategy and processes to achieve sustainable growth and stay ahead.

Today’s customers are well informed about competitive products and services on offer and they seek the best value. They know that Amazon or Flipkart can deliver accurately, consistently, and with discounts. In this environment, an intuitive approach is simply not enough. Quality of service or product delivery really matters to customers, as do responsiveness to complaints and easy processes to handle problems. The goal is to develop sustainable delivery systems that give consistent results objectively. In this dynamic and competitive scenario, Innovation serves as a key tool to help adapt to market conditions.

Innovation is now becoming key tool to implement corporate strategy for growth and transformation. What separates successful innovators from the pack is their commitment to treating innovation as a strategic investment, not a casual day trip. Leaders need to allocate resources matching to their long term corporate strategy, yet should not fall in the inertia of static resource allocation for innovation. Leaders who are able to reallocate resources from one business strategy to another are generally able to deliver better return on innovation investment.

Challenges

Companies face multiple challenges in today’s competing environment. The main challenge is not a shortage of ideas, but in making the right choices about investing in Innovation. New Product Development and introduction processes are often disconnected scattered into disjointed, separate systems, negatively affecting return on investment. The cost of failure gets more expensive at every progressive stage of innovation. A by data driven approach that provides early problem identification of probable failure, may help avoid mistakes.
