[su_dropcap style=”flat”]A[/su_dropcap]RE YOU WONDERING about or have you been asked in your boardroom meetings, white boarding sessions or staff annual planning:

How do we innovate and how do we do it better and faster? How do we seize transformative opportunities before our competition? How can we do it better, faster and maybe even a little bit cheaper or offer something extra? What are we not doing but we should be doing? What do world leading innovators do that others don’t do?

If your answer is “yes” then you are part of a small percentage of groups that are thinking ahead and eager not only to innovate but also to question, improve and change the wide range of practices and processes that may no longer be serving and providing value to their teams and organization, especially to key stakeholders.

If your answer is “no” you may be too comfortable with a “status quo”. But this comfort is fleeting in the middle of glocal competition. If you think about competition, you might sense a paralyzing fear that is part of getting into a reactive mode aimed at surviving vs. thriving mentality not only in your company’s HQ locally, but nationally and globally. It is like going on the elevator ride of 100+ floor building where random buttons are pushed on your daily ride in the office – you don’t have any idea where you will stop or exit next, nor how to prioritize your task and quickly solve complex issues. You are not in a fun place to be – we get that.

Innovation2But there is also middle part, a “meat of the sandwich” that is combination of both, and somewhat feels secure and comfy knowing that at the moment their position is secured and they are ok to take a time, meet and plan, and meet some more and do something but nothing serious enough to disrupt the status quo. Sounds or feels familiar?

Today more then ever you and your organization have to deliver outcomes and significant impact in the organization much faster, more furiously, with measureable financial gains and a glocal perspective. If you are thinking locally, if you are thinking globally, this is not enough. The greatest innovations will come from a new hybrid of thinking, the glocal perspective.

Successful innovation requires very special skills and talents – more then making your self and your team agile and ready for the challenge! It is more then ever essential to know do you have a right team with the right skill set in your organization for the job that needs to be done. If not, can you train or retrain existing talent and how fast that can occur? If not, where and how can you get the talent?

You must be wondering how in the world do we make this possible, Izabela? Is it even possible? Sure it is!

Through new and customer focused innovations coupled with effective and significant organizational transformation and change can drive positive impact through disruptive technology, people and process integration. Best example is Innovation Collision.
