I saw a great post this weekend, “How we fly: Aircraft as Career Metaphors” by Venkat and it got me thinking about Innovation programs. How does your innovation program handle behind the wheel? Do you have a couple of Lamborghinis in your innovation garage, or are you a Herbie fan? Is speed important to you, the way your program appears on the outside or are you more concerned with long term results?
Incidentally, my personal view is that you need a fleet of vehicles – no one size fits all! That being said, what vehicles would you budget for?
