Innovation is important to your company’s future. However, is innovation in your environment an “ivory tower” where a select few have a monopoly on the subject or, is innovation a team sport for you?

The short video below provides some great insight into patterns of innovation. After watching this video, I am reminded that no one company, country, division, department, team, or individual has a monopoly on innovation. Rather, innovations take time and benefit from the collision of slow hunches from multiple people. Innovation is indeed a team sport, made  up of individual players with unique value to contribute!

Keep this in mind as you go about our business within your current environment. We are all called to innovate. Be sure to bring your hunches to your management, project teams, and discussions. Your customers, employees and stakeholders deserve the benefit of your innovative thoughts.
