An organization, particularly a long-standing one with legacy structures and processes, cannot simply decide that it wants to be innovative and then immediately find success at innovating. Instead, the right organizational structure, combined with clear executive buy-in for focusing on innovation, is critical to ensuring the success of the program. From dedicated budget to freedom to fail to the involvement of cross-disciplinary resources, the right foundations must be put into place for an organization to innovate successfully. This also includes putting the right leader at the helm of the program. Whether that leader has led a dedicated innovation group before, they were previously a product leader, or they come from a different background entirely, they will need to shift their mindset to their new context. In particular, they need to prepare for the ambiguity and uncertainty inherent in innovation programs.
