So, what are the ingredients that make innovation work in the corporate world? Why is it that some teams consistently deliver innovative solutions, while others constantly bicker and never seem to deliver.

On a large scale, we can look at Google, Microsoft and Apple and all have our opinions on who is the most innovative. In many areas, Apple seem to be the most innovative, so what are the ingredients that deliver this innovation.

Is it ?:

  • A big research and development budget
  • Skilled developers and engineers

I believe that it’s a clear vision, strategy and a focus on people in your team. In many cases as IT professionals, we focus on the technical innovations, but often the innovations are in the adoption or deployment of technology.
