The Key To Innovation Is...

I've been spending a lot of time trying to work this out on my own, and I've spent a lot of time talking to people both high up in organisations and at the grass roots doing stuff. Having a diguised version of the age-old fanboy question 'so where do you get your ideas?'

The key to innovation appears to be 'external influences'.

The key to innovation in a large organisation appears to be 'have a small team that spend all their time having external influences, who are good minglers and storytellers, with no ambition to be producers themselves, and understand how to pick the right one of their experiences for someone else who's stuck'.

Now, I've just got to flesh that out to 20 pages of convincing powerpoint - preferably with graphs - to keep my job.
