5 Myths about Innovation

Why they seem plausible and why we are wrong.

Myths represent a subtle trap that leads even smart people to believe them. They are usually based on a plausible half-truth and are supported by personal beliefs.

Worse still, acting according to the myths does not lead to immediate consequences. It is only over time that the awareness awakens that one might have made a mistake. But the decisions made once cannot be reversed and the damage is rarely avert.

We encounter myths in most areas of human action. Innovation is also affected. We regularly encounter companies that are subject to the charm of the myth. Here are five of the most dangerous innovation myths we encounter in our work in companies.

Why it seems plausible

The road to the top was hard! They receive praise and admiration from all sides. Their sales and profits are bubbling. They know their way around. Why would you change something? They are obviously doing everything right. In addition, your entire organization is aligned with the existing products and processes. Should you take a risk?

Why you’re wrong

Well, are you successful? That is what your competition wants! Are you sure that it is not in the process of making your offer more efficient, simpler, cheaper or better in order to take valuable market share from you? You reduce your risk through innovation! Never stick unreflectively to old habits. Yesterday’s successful strategies do not necessarily apply to tomorrow.

Why it seems plausible

Innovation is not one of your company’s core processes. The importance of innovation activities is correspondingly low. Basically, they only disrupt day-to-day business and are not seen as value-creating working hours. “I would have to release my employees for this” is not an unusual train of thought. After all, the Daily Business always takes precedence.

Why you’re wrong

Without innovation there is no progress, without progress there is no future. Innovation must be as important in your company as any other business process. As important as day-to-day business is in the short term, innovations are important in the long term. It’s not about the next 3 months, it’s about the next 10 years. Don’t they deserve at least the same attention?

Why it seems plausible

In the engineery-heavy German-speaking world, innovation is all too often reduced to: “How do we make our existing product a bit better?” Companies often have an incomplete perception of innovation and sit back with the belief that an R & D department and a (mostly non-functioning) operational proposal system or KVP system is enough.

Why you’re wrong

Do you know that there are many other areas of innovation? In addition to products, you innovate processes, services, management, organization, and business models. The potential for success in unnoticed fields of innovation often turns out to be much more relevant than the pure concentration on product innovations with their declining earnings growth.

Why it seems plausible

New technologies are, without a doubt, often drivers of innovation. This is widely reported in the media and publications. No wonder most people equate innovation with radical, society-changing achievements such as e-mobility or disruptive internet-based business models. But you have nothing to do with that yourself.

Why you’re wrong

In fact, an estimated 90 of all innovations are incremental in nature. They gradually build up from existing and familiar. A small step for humanity, but a big step for your company-the creative advancement of products, processes or services is as important to your company as completely new technologies for society.

Why it seems plausible

The Wunderwuzzi! He turns ideas into innovations. He speaks the language of the R & E department as well as that of controlling and distribution. He knows all the trends. He understands what your customer wants. And he fights for an idea, even when the biggest resistance comes from his own company.

Why you’re wrong

An innovation manager stands alone in a wide corridor if he is not constantly protected by senior management and his position exposed. All executives must have the same understanding of his job. Today, innovations are cross-departmental and networked. Innovation is the basic task of every employee-from the shareholder to the caretaker.

Our mission

We support companies to innovate independently.

Our society must constantly innovate. Without innovation there is no progress, without progress there is no future. Companies and organizations are part of our society.

Innovation must have the same value in a company as any other business process.

Lack of innovation competence in companies leads to inertia and competitive disadvantages.

The Innovators Institute offers innovation trainings to medium-sized organizations as well as departments of large companies with 30 employees or more, which increase the internal innovation capability and make companies fit for the future.

Our values

Our passion is teaching and promoting. We love to pass on our knowledge if it makes our customers and our employees more successful. We are enthusiastic about innovation and love our work and our products.

For dynamic companies, we are the world’s leading companion on the road to securing the future because we have the most competent employees and the most qualified technologies to answer company-relevant questions. We respect everyone, are open and tolerant.

We are not a management consultancy. We see the whole thing from the perspective of the entrepreneur, because we ourselves are entrepreneurs. Our approach is to give greater importance to innovation in German companies again. Our goal is to create added value for our customers.

We are constantly training ourselves (be the best yourself), are success-oriented and do not exaggerate. We don’t delegate problems, we solve them. Trust is a valuable asset – what we say, we do.

For us, responsibility means to have successfully integrated employees into innovation processes, to have them made to innovators, so that you can implement innovations yourself and only need us temporarily or not at all in the long term, developing the entrepreneurial thinking of your employees, strengthening an Innovation culture, finding new business models and strengthen the sustainability of a company. We are always open and honest, even if it is unpleasant, we speak plainly.
