In this HBR article Greg Satell explains why there is no one-size-fits-all kind of innovation and how to pick the most suitable one for your specific problem.

To get there, you have to start by framing the problem correctly.

Therefore the author invites whomever deals with innovation, whether it is a big company or a small one, to dwell on these 2 questions:

  • How well can we define the problem?  
  • How well can we define the skill domain(s) needed to solve it?

On top of that the article features a brilliant story about open innovation and clams.
