The Ingredients of Innovation

I enjoyed a recent post on Wally Bock’s Three Star Leadership Blog about innovation — Wally contends that ideas are easy, but innovation requires work. He quotes Robert Tucker, who said: “Anyone who has ever taken a shower has had a good idea.” He may be right… I had a great idea in the shower today too… and a good strategic one at that. The ground he covers from there is to illustrate how some ideas die on the table, and others get killed.
