Innovation Isn’t an Idea Problem

Harvard Business Review explains how ideas can abound and also get overlooked

  • It is not the lack of “more ideas”, “outside the box” or “blue sky” thinking that is the problem.
  • The problem is overlooking the good ideas that have already been proposed.
  • We have a bias against new ideas when we face uncertainty.
  • Research reveals that uncertainty influences to favor practicality.
  • The uncertainty that compels to innovate can also cause to reject it.
  • Changing the idea approval structure in the organization can solve this issue.
  • Democratize idea recognition with an “idea market” in which all participate.
  • The “idea market” creates a culture where ideas are recognized and developed.
