How to make innovation legitimate

with Neil Sequeira

22 Sep 2021 11:00 am

In most organizations, innovation as a practice doesn't have the same level of legitimacy as other teams and practices have. And part of the reason is institutional blindness.

Unfortunately, institutional blindness is a real thing. As soon as a new employee joins the organization, they get too focused on their KPI, and they start to lose one of the most important aspects in innovation, context.

So in this episode, I am talking with Neil Sequeira about innovation in large organizations.

In this episode, we talk about:

  1. What is the business side of innovation?
  2. Why is it important to have a high-level view of your organization?
  3. Institutional blindness.
  4. Problem with KPI in innovation.
  5. Organization design not being supportive of innovative thinking.
  6. The biggest challenge in innovating in a large company.
  7. Should you have a separate innovation team?
  8. The problem of not being heard.
  9. Is it possible to make innovation legitimate?
  10. How to tackle this challenge?

Neil is a connector, a joiner of dots - people, ideas, and things - to create and deliver value.  While he is a chartered accountant by trade, his curious nature led him to various advisory, legal, software, hospitality, facilities management, and cash services industries before spending the last decade in the Australian telecommunications industry.

Neil loves the first-hand experience of the joys, challenges, and heartbreak of creating and bringing ideas to life.  But most of all, he loves to create platforms and opportunities to help other people find their authentic voices.
