The icebreaker question on „responsibility for innovation in your organisation“ revealed two prominent trends: half the responses underscored 𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐝𝐢𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐬 like R&D, Marketing, and the C-Level Board, while the other half emphasized everybody’s 𝐚𝐜𝐜𝐨𝐮𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲 for the own functional domain.
Our guest speaker, Johnny Petersen, VP Planning Tine, shed light on the common challenge of Supply Chain’s late involvement in critical innovation decisions. He stressed the need for 𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐥𝐲 𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐚𝐠𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐮𝐩𝐩𝐥𝐲 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐢𝐧 𝐟𝐮𝐧𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧, starting from opportunity identification. Johnny also emphasized the 𝐢𝐧𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐭𝐮𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐳𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐨𝐟 𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 and the importance of asking the 𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐪𝐮𝐞𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬 to formulate optimal strategies. Integrated Business Planning (𝐈𝐁𝐏) is the optimal process to 𝐝𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐨𝐫 𝐢𝐧𝐧𝐨𝐯𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 in the tactical space.
During a brief breakout session, we delved into various levers crucial for enabling innovation. Interestingly, a significant portion of these enablers pointed towards Organization and Culture. This revelation is reassuring, aligning with the focus of our Integrated Business Sensing (𝐈𝐁𝐒𝐢𝐧𝐠) Change Enablement Framework on 𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐨𝐫𝐠𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐳𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐜𝐮𝐥𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐚𝐥 𝐞𝐥𝐞𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐬.
Thank you to Johnny and to each participant for making that 50th session so insightful and enjoyable!
