THE FLOW PERSPECTIVE
What is innovation?
We believe innovation is NOT about: building a better mousetrap, deploying the latest blockchain and AI technology, or hedging against future disruption.
Innovation IS about creating new capabilities that will radically differentiate your business in a changing market.
We believe innovation must be:
1. Strategic: our initiatives need to position the business to be competitive into future a decade or more ahead: shorter term outcomes can be achieved through other means.
2. Impactful: at the same time, our work should quickly lead to impacts that can be measured in terms of standard business metrics: if they can’t impact the business today and tomorrow, our initiatives will always be at the mercy of shifting priorities: that is not sustainable
3. Long-lived: like any successful business, our initiatives need to be consistently renewed, expanded and evolved and this demands capital and attention: we must build entities that are self-sustaining and self-evolving if the technologies and services they provide are to remain relevant for more than a year or two.
This is Sustainable Innovation.
"Innovation means creating new capabilities that will fundamentally differentiate your business in a changing market. If you’re doing something else, you’re not innovating."
Flow is interested in hearing from corporations that see a powerful need to innovate on their core business and operating models and are looking for radical new ways to deliver change.
