Findings

An ability to innovate holds the key to sustained growth for many companies. And in a rapidly-evolving business world characterized by ever more intense global competition, its importance becomes even greater. Innovation is a demanding process and obviously requires talent. Effective teamwork is a vital part of the equation too. Indeed, it can be reasonably argued that adopting a team-oriented focus offers the most ideal means of generating and bringing creative suggestions to fruition. Furthermore, the innovation bug can certainly be infectious. When one team makes a crucial breakthrough, others in the organization want to follow suit and emulate the success. But such competition is healthy and can subsequently make the entire firm better positioned to tackle future challenges.

Practical implications

Provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world's leading organizations.

Originality/value

The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to digest format.
