Mar 15, 2007 Version 1.3 Copyright Robert Porter Lynch The Great Problems in the World Today will be Solved on a Foundation of Collaborative Innovation
Mar 15, 2007 Version 1.3 Copyright Challenge without Inspiration Desire without a Dream Drive without Destiny Falling into the Abyss between what’s Real versus what’s Possible Without a an organization risks: Alignment + Collaboration + Innovation Synergy
Mar 15, 2007 Version 1.3 Copyright Key Problems, Priorities, Issues: (We are not a Solution In Search of a Problem) Growth & Innovation are Top of Mind for CEOs –Poor Connection between Innovation & Revenue Generation –Don’t See Innovation as a Strategic Initiative at the Value Chain level – it remains a set of tactical processes Innovation is a confusing pastiche of Slogans, Tools, Techniques, Aphorisms, and Platitudes –CEOs were not trained in Innovation at MBA level – little/no management skills/experience in innovation –No Concrete Innovation Management System Innovation is confused with Technological Invention –CTOs are being re-knighted as Chief Innovation Officers –Up to 80% of Innovation is non-technical (Potential is untapped) The Innovation Onslaught –Will require companies to Double, even Triple their Innovation Output
Mar 15, 2007 Version 1.3 Copyright Why Do we Need a Collaborative Innovation Architecture? Too many Slogans, Platitudes, High Aspirations Not Enough real results Chief Technology Officers are unclear about their role as Chief Innovation Officers Killing of Innovation during Acquisitions Lots of Tactical/Small Scale Efforts Little Strategic Initiatives Too Many Tools & Techniques Confusing: What to Use & When The Results in the Field:
Mar 15, 2007 Version 1.3 Copyright Consequences 1.Loss of Competitive Advantage: –Because Innovation is the #1 Competitive Advantage in a Fast-Moving World, is vulnerable to being “out-innovated” in the marketplace 2.Falling Behind: –Innovations that should be occurring at a rapid rate are not surfacing 3.Migrating Innovation into your Company: –Innovations that are developed by alliance partners & strategic suppliers are not being migrated into your Company –Customers are a vital source of innovation 4.Top & Bottom Line: –Innovation potentially could provide Billions in New Revenues and Millions in Bottom Line Impact. The Consequences of having no Innovation Architecture or Strategic Program could be extremely dangerous:
Mar 15, 2007 Version 1.3 Copyright Why & What of “Architecture of Innovation” What is Architecture? The Compelling Imperative How this is Different
Mar 15, 2007 Version 1.3 Copyright What is “Architecture” Systematic Set of Strategies, Processes, Practices, Tools, and Methodologies that, when applied masterfully, produces a consistent, high quality result that lasts and regenerates. Without an “Architecture” there is no way to take the learnings of individual builders and artisans and transmute these into other diverse situations. From Wikipedia –Architecture (from Greek, "master builder“) is the art and science of designing structures. –Today, architecture is the art and discipline of creating an actual, implied or apparent plan of any complex object or system: implied architecture of abstract things such as music or mathematics, apparent architecture of natural things, such as geological formations or the structure of biological cells, or explicitly planned architectures of human-made things such as software, computers, enterprises, and databases, in addition to buildings. –Architecture is a mapping of the elements or components into some kind of structure or system, which preserves the relationships among the elements or components.

Mar 15, 2007 Version 1.3 Copyright TWELVE STANDARDS FOR BEST PRACTICE ALLIANCE ARCHITECTURE 1)Applicable: Does the principle have applicability to nearly all situations, regardless of industry or culture? 2)Actionable: Will the principle truly work in practice, or is it just nice theory? 3)Understandable: Can this principle be simply communicated to those involved? 4)Verifiable: Can we clearly observe the changes when the principle is put into place? 5)Measurable: Is there a method of measuring this principle's effectiveness in action? 6)Controllable: Will the principle enable more effective control of direction, intensity, speed, etc of the alliance? 7) Diagnosable: When there is a problem, can we see the problem clearly, do we have a way to recognize the misapplication of the principle? 8) Prescribable: If an element is missing, can the principle be injected into the system to cause a cure? 9) Replicable: Can we recreate a positive result, time and again? 10) Trainable: Can operational managers successfully acquire the skills and knowledge required for implementation? 11) Valuable: Is the principle really essential, or merely a superfluous nicety? 12) Predictable: Can we foresee, in advance, the positive or negative results? During our assessment of Best Processes and Best Practices, we apply stringent standards to ensure the quality of the outcome.
