My Favorite Words & phrases (830)
Top management in the innovative organization,
therefore, not only "encourages" ideas,
as all managements are told to do.
It asks continuously,
"What would this idea have to be like to be
practical, realistic, effective?"
Top management in the innovative organization is
the major "drive" for innovation.
It uses the ideas of the organization as stimuli
to its own vision...
The innovative organization requires a learning
atmosphere throughout the entire business.
It creates and maintains continuous learning.
No one is allowed to consider himself "finished"
at any time.
Learning is a continuing process for all members
of the organization.
The ablest of the young scholars, for instance,
will be under great pressure to stick to the
"safe" traditional fields which still control
the opportunities for promotion.
The traditional functions organize work from
where we are today to where we are going.
The innovative function organizes work from
where we want to be, back to what we now have to
do in order to get there.
The design principle for innovation is the team,
set up outside of existing structures, that is,
as an "autonomous unit."
It is not a "decentralized business" in the
traditional sense of the word, but it has to be
autonomous and separate from operating organizations.
