Dear all,

why is innovation such a challenge for larger corporations? After two days of intensive work and discussions with an industrial client this week I’d like to share some thoughts via the following 3 (+1) links.

Steve Blank is very vocal about why traditional companies are often performing „Innovation Theater.

Martin Kupp and Tristan Kromer explain why it takes principles before tools to successfully manage innovation portfolios.

My own 2015 LinkedIn post lists five measurable innovation success factors that are discounted all too easily.

Bonus material: if you can’t come up with innovation projects gone wrong in your company (congratulations!), here is CB Insights’ wonderful collection „When Corporate Innovation Goes Bad – The 155 Biggest Product Failures Of All Time“.

Have a great „golden October“ weekend!
