Industry innovation requires premeditation and a lot of luck. There are a few different ways that you can harness the energy you need to propel your business above the rest.
If you’re looking to turn your business into an innovation engine, there are three ways that you can kickstart your efforts.
1. An Outlined Innovation
Without a plan, change rarely works in a company’s favor. If you want to create an innovation engine that works on your behalf, then you need to have a plan.
The fun of innovation, of course, is that you don’t always know what’s coming. Even so, you can outline your goals for your business before implementing company-wide changes.
Discuss where you see your production line being one year, five years, and ten years in the future. Explore the different ways your industry is changing and deliberate which market development strategies may last the longest or require the most change.
Once you have an outline of the path you want to take in the future, you’ll have goalposts to meet. While the road that takes you to each of those posts may change -- and while the posts themselves may not remain the same -- you’ll have a better idea of how you want your business to evolve and what work those changes will require.
2. A Collaborative Innovation Engine
You’re not going to be able to transform your business on your own. Make sure to bring your management staff into the fold prior to your implementation.
When you have other people at your side during the implementation process, it will be easier to control the wave of transformation that passes through your business. These parties will be able to share the tools you give them with the rest of your staff, ensuring that you don’t overwork yourself and that each of your staff members will have access to the documents they need to successfully look to the future.
Any managers you bring into the innovation implementation process will have the opportunity to assess your upcoming projects. When you’re able to bounce new ideas off of a responsive audience, you can hone your plans until they’re as relevant and effective as possible.
3. Innovation and Failure: A Reconfiguration Engine
No matter what industry you’re in, you will face losses. The plans you implement may not work out as you intended. A sales and market development strategy may flop. No matter what, though, you cannot view these experiences to be total failures.
Instead, consider each moment when innovation doesn’t work as a chance to learn. Yes, a marketing strategy may have failed to connect a product to a new audience. Explore the platform you used, the influencer you worked with, and the content you created. You can use that outreach as an example of what not to do to succeed in the days to come.
Your innovation engine is not going to be successful one hundred percent of the time. Allow yourself room for failures, and it’ll be easier to get back up on your feet again.
