Architecture is a fine balance of creativity and reality. That is, Architects must be creative within the constraints which they live. Applying that concept to building an innovation framework within your organisation is no different. Understanding your environment and resources is crucial when determining what will work well and how far you can push the boundaries. Going too “weird” may clash with your organisational culture, too big and you won’t have the resources to support it. On the other hand, being too conservative may not emphasise the importance or new direction your innovation initiative is trying to take. Working from the blueprint through to execution in a logical manner, considering all key elements along the way, will help you avoid the pitfalls many others have made in the past.

As an innovation and idea management company we have witnessed successful use and implementation of these processes. Although these concepts are complementary they reflect different applications of innovation and idea management.
