Sources of Innovation

Look around yourself for new sources of innovation—trends, incongruities, wildcards, outliers—and the people who can help you achieve change: leaders, adaptors, connectors, and financiers. Innovation is not an individual sport—it’s achieved when groups of people with diverse skills meet and collaborate. In order to facilitate collaborative innovation, you need to create an environment that brings people together and you need to harness the sources of innovation around you, from creativity clusters and collaborative innovation networks to innovation jams and crowd-sourcing.
