How does innovation management help in digital transformation?

Posted by Tim Woods on Jan 9, 2017 10:30:28 AM

The power of digital disruption is so immense that it now sits on the top priority list for almost every executive. Whether the threat comes from new digital natives entering the market, traditional competitors upping their digital quotient, or other markets using a digital channel to launch a competitive offering. On the flip side, as GE is demonstrating, the opportunity for growth is equally immense.

In a new report by HYPE and MWD Advisors, we looked at the role that innovation management programs can play in helping companies to make this transformation.

Coping with Digital Transformation: Adopting a Rapid Innovation Process

Posted by Paul Hobcraft on Dec 21, 2016 2:45:34 PM


As we start to close out our 2016 year, apart from the rush to finish certain tasks off, it is a time of reflection and some forward thinking to welcome in the New Year.

From my standpoint I am simply amazed at how the world seems to be spinning faster and faster. I am convinced my working days are shorter or the clock is moving faster. I never seem to finish what I had intended to complete by the end of a day or week. I get caught up in the spill over effect. Something always gets in the way, something has to give. So we make a resolution to change something to improve on this constant catch up state we find ourselves in.

Playing chess with the Red Queen

Posted by John Bessant on Jun 8, 2016 11:13:20 AM

This is the Red Queen, one of the famous characters in Lewis Carroll’s ‘Alice through the Looking Glass’. And whilst she is an undoubtedly intriguing person, someone you might want to get to know better, here’s a word of advice. Don't try playing chess with her – you’ll very soon find yourself out of your depth!

There are three problems you’ll have to confront if you do decide you'd like to give it a go. First, she keeps changing the rules, arbitrarily making them up as she goes along. Second, she keeps changing the game – you might think you are playing chess but might suddenly decide to switch it to football or horse racing! And, as if these are not enough, she also lives in a world where this kind of behaviour is perfectly normal!

Talk and action often exist in different universes. That's one reason why disruptive innovation sometimes appears to arrive out of nowhere. Plenty of organizations talk a good game about innovation, and meanwhile those who actually are innovative are busy changing the world.

Innovation pathways - a way to map out your strategy

Posted by Paul Hobcraft on May 25, 2015 7:33:00 PM

I found time last Saturday to sit down and listen to the discussion that occurred between Haydn Shaughnessy and Colin Nelson recently, on the Hype webinar “How Companies Address the Disruption Challenge and thoroughly enjoyed it

There I was penning my notes as they discussed between them their different views on how they saw this world where disruption is becoming part of our daily lives. I took a lot of ‘takeaways’ from it and I’d encourage you to find the time to listen to it. Also it prompted me to register and download Haydn’s White Paper written for Hype entitled “How companies address the disruption challenge
