Innovation Tools

Innovation Tools: "'While innovation is an interesting topic of conversation in the board room, in reality few firms are walking the innovation talk. There's a distinction to be made between the management discussion about the importance of innovation and the actual innovation work being done within the company. Many Fortune 500 firms are just beginning to organize their innovation efforts, so it's important to distinguish action from organization. Many firms are talking about innovation and taking some disjointed actions, but few are truly organized to innovate.'

- Jeffrey Phillips, What's Happening in Innovation 2007 "
