High Velocity Innovation will show how companies accelerate growth with:
- The strategic elements that pull innovation from their best people.
- A framework for driving innovation that overcomes roadblocks, cultural barriers and the pressure to sustain the current business.
- Leadership models and metrics for building high accountability and responsiveness into innovation systems.
- A roadmap for accelerating innovation across your business, no matter where you are now.
Businesses like yours can establish strategies, systems, processes and tools that build innovation velocity by addressing the root causes that lead to innovation disappointments. To succeed, your best ideas need solid execution without launch delays, budget overruns or poor product/market fit.
In this book, ten companies share their stories about how they’ve achieved High Velocity Innovation by putting these methods into practice: Greenheck, Hyster-Yale, Keurig Dr. Pepper, Pole/Zero and SunPower in the US, Constellium, Novozymes and Sonion in Europe, Gallagher Group and Tri-Max Mowers in New Zealand, and Agersens, a startup from Australia. Not every idea will succeed — and not every idea should succeed. But a company’s best ideas can be identified and accelerated with High Velocity Innovation.
