Do you think about an out-standing position in your market-niche? And you still wonder …. “how to”? You might decide to do something about it. Well, you HAVE TO DECIDE to do something. Do something different than before. Something …. additional?
Many innovations are born within a company. You can order external professional support of course, but don´t miss to run an internal system which permanently delivers ideas and results from the people who work for you. Software programs are easy to find or order and even more easily to install and implement today. This makes sense once the company you run or lead with other Board members can´t catch such ideas within the daily work flow by each key account.
If there is no time for innovation meetings (….how will anyone prepare for it anyway?) twice a year, hand this task to a new software program and ask every employee officially to send in their ideas and solutions via this new system. Offer appropriate and different benefits for their innovative ideas! Offer some delicious “pralinés” which some of your bright people cannot resist to leave behind for others –
Invest into a new SW to invest in the future of your company! Innovation is born in the minute someone thinks of it! Innovation shows up suddenly! Better be prepared to catch that triggering moment and don´t allow it to abstractly fall into the trash can next to the employees desk.
If you need to sit down first to discuss buying an innovative system for your company, go sit down with your deciders and display such change on a big piece of paper first. Make this change visible! Give this potential innovation a picture and see if you want to slip it away for good. But – decide for something – now. You can only stand out “high-heeled”!
BE A DECISION MAKER. BECOME OUTSTANDING.
