Over a century ago, Thomas Edison said, "Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration." Nobody listened.
When companies launch innovation initiatives, they focus almost all of their time and energy on that initial one percent - the thrilling hunt for the breakthrough idea. They draw guidance from countless books and articles that treat innovation as though it is synonymous with creativity. The reality is that an idea is only a beginning. Innovation is a long, hard journey, from imagination to impact. And that presents a major challenge because, simply put, organizations are not designed for innovation, they are designed for ongoing operations.
