Senior Operations VP: "I would like to stimulate innovation with my people in the course of my daily routine. My organization cannot take on one more initiative. What 2 or 3 things can I do?"
1. How is <topic> adding value to The Job our 'customers' want done?
3. How could this <topic> add even more value to the business?
Then ... with these new ideas in mind, what steps now make sense?
1. Practical actions, easily done
2. A new person to contact
3. A specific exploratory conversation with others
We don't need to make innovation a big deal ... after all it has been around since humankind first picked up a stick . . .
Good Fortune to You!
