To innovate is part of a paradigm shift where the tools and best practices are useful, yet the main obstacle is people and their attitude. Get out of our comfort zone is rather complicated, and if we also add the probability of fail, the problem is bigger. Nobody likes to deal with a failure. However, one of the best ways to learn and become more productive is “Fail fast and cheap“. If we are part of a team where we run practices which allow us to identify these errors, correct them and learn from them to not repeat them, this road is a good one.
Today we listen to this “big innovation experts” and they suggest us this same idea, with a large plan view for even larger enterprises. And they are not wrong.. However, if you think back a little and have a little more background, you will realize that this is part of the essence of agility
Fail fast, adapt and move on
So, you know, please do not change your current words, nor much less the way in which you have learned to do things.
“Innovation” in the background is to implement the good practices of working as a team that we already know from Agile experience, but in a much more oriented way to enterprises.
