The Stage Where Most Innovation Projects Fail

Harvard Business

In most cases we’ve studied at Innovation Leader, an online resource for people responsible for innovation and R&D, there’s a surplus of good ideas for new products, services and business models. The problems arise when projects need to be transferred to the business units for a large-scale launch. Does the business unit feel like the project is something they had a hand in shaping — or is it like a perishable package left on a doorstep?

Balancing Parenting and Work Stress: A Guide

In Big Companies, Lean Is Only One Piece of the Puzzle

Harvard Business Review

In 2010, one of us was sitting in a room at the Harvard Business School with Eric Ries and a number of budding entrepreneurs.
