Hatching brilliant ideas for the world’s next big innovation is the easy part. Bringing those ideas to life — through new software, hardware or services solutions — is the hard part. That’s exponentially true when it comes to the Internet of Everything because of the extra complexity of connecting people, data, process and things through technology.
In our corporate world, it’s called “execution.” How an innovation is developed from concept to concrete is just as important as the original brainchild itself.
In my last blog, I focused on catalysts that can fuel innovation 10x: Inclusion, diversity, inquisitiveness, observation, networking, agility and flexibility – they all fuel innovation. Here, in part two, I want to share some game-changing insights on execution that I learned from industry leaders at Cisco’s recent “Walk the Talk” Leadership Forum.
