Recently I was on Fabian Böck‘s BOECKBX podcast and talked a bit about corporate innovation and the effects of the pandemic on businesses – including my own.
Have a look and listen.
Based on my own experience working in outsourced innovation with governments, organisations and some of the largest companies in the world on and off between 1996 and 2010, I do not think it is a good idea to outsource (business model) innovation.
That’s the whole premise of my company, +ANDERSEN & ASSOCIATES.
From the +ANDERSEN mission statement:
“… we enable companies to manage and run innovation for tomorrow inside their own company, using their own people today.
Because innovation in your company will never happen by outside consultants.
It has to come from your most valuable assets – the people you already have on the inside.”
