How creative is your innovation "process"? Think about it? Is your innovation process highly prescriptive or very organic? Is your innovation pipeline delivering a balanced portfolio of projects and products or is it skewed to being incremental or hedging on high risk disruptive innovation?

Or maybe not! There are several issues that we need to acknowledge, which are spoken privately but not always openly discussed as you will see why.
