Epilogue

Now that you've read the whole book (I hope), I thought I would leave you with the results of a poll that I conducted on LinkedIn (see Figure E.1 through E.6), along with some of the comments:

 

Every stakeholder in the organisation has good education and understanding of the need for innovation—take for example NHS system. Everyone has great backgrounds, but has a lack of will to do the necessary actions. This is my argument for trust and respect is the reason that innovation fails.

 
 --—Niels-Peter Thoms
 

Although limited resources are a key barrier, the underlying cause for a weak innovation program is the lack of leadership commitment to the hard work required for meaningful innovation. If the commitment was there, the resources would be abundant.

 
 --—George Cugini
 

Our organization is used to strong leadership so the psychology of taking a risk and moving forward with innovation at the worker level is scary. In addition, although we have a strategy, we haven't implemented enough tools and processes so employees feel like they understand how to move forward.

 
 --—Karen Bradbury
 

Information sharing is the key barrier. Lack of knowledge sharing and using the existing knowledge, I always say "If we only knew what we know, innovation would go a lot faster."

 
 --—Nel Mostert
