‘Introduction to Systematic Innovation Webinar Series’

Given the recent world events, when the businesses resume their operations, one of the top challenges they would be looking to overcome will be how to get everyone’s feet on the ground quickly, create confidence, exercise caution but at the same time surge ahead as fast as they can to recover the lost ground. To do this they need to quickly innovate on the new challenges that will unfold post lockdown.

Businesses are always awash with contradictions some are perennial like for e.g. minimizing supply risk by way of having inventory while at the same time reduce the capital that is locked in maintaining the inventory, while others are as a result of an unannounced ‘black swan’ event like the one we are witnessing now for e.g. customer will have discretionary purchases due to fear of virus spread and will be overcautious to take the deliveries. This will not only affect the revenue but will cause unprecedented logistic delays adversely affecting the supply chain operations.

To Innovate, businesses need to first identify the right challenges & the underlying contradictions and then implement solutions at the lightening pace. Systematic Innovation will help identifying the specific challenges accurately and connect them with similar natured problems faced by other industries of varying domains. Once this connection is established It will help teams to look at the inventive rules / solutions that other industries deployed to overcome those problems. Innovation teams then can then take a clue to arrive at their specific solution/s quickly and more predictably.
