Hello and welcome to our second edition of the funnel!
After last quarter’s edition, we had a lot of comments from different readers. One of the comments that truly stuck with us was the importance of sharing and communication in the corporate innovation community. By sharing and communication, We don’t mean trade secrets or innovative products, but rather the process – the successes, the failures, the hardships and the lessons learned. All corporations are struggling with the dissonance between stability and process in this fast- changing pace of our world, technology and markets.
We are all in the same boat. Being able to discuss and learn from each other can help all of us, without disrupting growth or ruining our chances in the midst of the competition. Such interaction can push us further forward in the technological revolution we are all experiencing. In this issue we looked at how very different organizations, from the navy, to a venture fund or startup examine and structure their innovation processes, what challenges they are dealing with and more.
We hope you enjoy the interviews, articles and stories we’ve chosen to share in this quarter’s edition – and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
