Tinkering with the Innovation Supply Chain

Begin with the end in mind. That is what David Berry writes in an article for Gulf News about the best way to inject innovation into the supply chain. Everyone says they need innovation, but there are a hundred theories on the best way to develop it. Berry believes in a systematic approach to innovation, where once a preferred solution has been decided, you can work backwards toward understanding all the barriers toward implementation and how technological innovation might address them. When you begin with an open mind and ask basic questions, you start to find cracks where processes could be smoother. It is specifically when people get used to processes just being a certain way that it becomes difficult to imagine a better scenario. Berry states that in order to create a network of effective innovation suppliers, market incumbents need to be willing to share “innovation specifications.” Spot the gaps in efficiency in your organization and work with partners to find solutions.
