How to Make Room for Innovation in Your Portfolio

These days, companies can’t make it without innovating. Has your company made room for innovation in its portfolio to continue to be successful?

David Matheson, President and CEO of SmartOrg, recently shared some tips for our Execution Excellence video series on how you can make room for innovation in your company’s portfolio.

·         Make sure that your portfolio evaluation system accommodates innovation projects.
·         Put at the center of your innovation process, the uncertainty and the ambiguity that’s in every innovation.
·         Treat that uncertainty and ambiguity in a rigorous way – be able to show the upside and the downside of the innovation
·         Stand up innovation next to those incremental projects in a way that makes dollars and cents and shows why they are actually great investments

Watch the full video below: 

David will be speaking at the upcoming Back end of Innovation Conference later this month and will be presenting 2 interactive workshops on “Solving Your Million Dollar Problem.” BEI is taking place October 21-23 in San Jose, CA. Download the brochure for more information:
