Creando cultura de Innovación

Creando cultura de Innovación

Hoy quiero presentaros el libro que he escrito junto a Esteban Meléndez, Creando cultura de innovación. Si sois de los que entendéis que la innovación es, hoy por hoy, la pieza clave para maximizar el impacto en vuestra estrategia corporativa y modernizar vuestra cultura organizacional, os recomiendo su lectura.

En nuestros días, las empresas que sobreviven no son necesariamente las más fuertes, sino las que mejor se adaptan al cambio.

La innovación no es patrimonio de unos pocos, con grandes recursos para invertir en ella o en la tecnología que la sustenta. Es importante entender que cualquier empresa, sea cual sea su tamaño o sector de actividad puede abordar sus retos desde la innovación. Lo que realmente importa es la calidad del liderazgo y el desarrollo de una cultura innovadora. Me atrevo a afirmar que, hoy por hoy, la supervivencia de una empresa depende de la adaptación de su equipo a los cambios ambientales, de crear un ambiente propicio, donde las personas que trabajan en ella encuentren la inspiración y se sientan motivadas.

Necesitamos repensar y revaluar el desarrollo de nuevos patrones de comportamiento y de hábitos en nuestras organizaciones, potenciando el diálogo continuo entre todas las partes involucradas en la empresa: equipo, clientes, partners… para desarrollar en todos ellos una cultura innovadora.

Innovación y Creatividad

En las próximas semanas iremos desgranando las partes esenciales del libro, que nos ayudarán a crear una cultura innovadora en nuestra organización. Hoy empezaré por el principio, para centrarme en una pregunta que nos hacemos con frecuencia, ¿necesita la innovación de la creatividad para ser eficaz?.

La innovación es la aplicación de la creatividad de manera sistemática para lanzar un nuevo producto o servicio al mercado. Su objetivo prioritario es transformar las ideas o insights generados por la creatividad en un entorno real y mesurable económicamente.

La creatividad la podríamos definir como la producción de nuevas ideas que pueden dar lugar a un nuevo producto, concepto o servicio, o simplemente resolver un problema de forma original y diferente. Aparece en momentos de ideación definidos y elegidos dentro del proceso de innovación, aunque también puede aparecer de forma espontánea.

La creatividad es, indudablemente, un ingrediente básico en la receta de la innovación. Pero no es el único, ni mucho menos. Las ideas son necesarias, pero hace falta más. Uno de los grandes innovadores empresariales de las últimas décadas (al menos, lo es para mí), Michael Dell, se refería a ellas como commodities, y explicaba que sólo aquellas que llegan al mercado y funcionan pueden ser consideradas como tales.

Innovación radical vs. Innovación incremental

Cuando el resultado de un proceso innovador da lugar a algo totalmente nuevo hablamos de innovación radical, disruptiva o en valor. Una innovación que trabaja con el futuro, ofreciendo soluciones realmente nuevas que funcionan en mercados nuevos o existentes. Una forma de arriesgar más a cambio de un impacto mayor.

Por el contrario, la Innovación incremental o continua es un proceso que busca optimizar lo existente para mantener el valor. Es la estrategia de la inercia aplicada en compañías tradicionales en contextos más bien limitados, para introducir mejoras sobre algo que ya existe, partiendo de datos y feedback sobre como está funcionando aquello que pretendemos mejorar.

Saber qué proceso innovador se adapta mejor a la compañía y cuál optimizará mejor sus recursos para conseguir los objetivos marcados es la clave del éxito en la cultura de innovación de cualquier empresa.  ¿Tienes claro cuál es el proceso que necesita tu organización?.

The Journey towards Innovation

If your company is wondering where to take innovation efforts and what to innovate to have a competitive edge, you can initiate many changes: innovate in the way you serve customers, innovate when launching a new product or service to the market, innovate creating a new business model, innovate creating new markets, innovate in channels or innovate in the organizational structure of your company … There are no limits to innovation. It’s a endless journey.
Each company responds to these questions differently. It is essential to consider before starting the journey towards innovation where we want to go, and also what we do not want to do. A case of success that is worth reviewing is that of the company Fuji, which at one point passed from being the third company in the world in production of photo reels, to be a company dedicated to the life sciences already the office documents, mainly, leaving sales of reels and cameras for 15% of their turnover. It completely changed its business model and its portfolio of products and services … The result: some of its competition disappeared and others are set far away.
Currently, social networks like Facebook can enter new markets such as financial, and financial sector companies become technology companies … In this journey of innovation everything is possible.
If you are willing to undertake this journey, you need to equip your company by incorporating design criteria, within the framework of Service Design or Design Thinking, although there are other frameworks like Lean or Agile. Doing so can help differentiate you from others in the market, as happened with the companies of the prestigious S & P 500, which, by incorporating these criteria, managed to increase its value by 211%.
And you, how do you want to lead your company towards innovation?
