1) The Law of Leadership:
Executive level support (Board, CEO, Governance, Structure Capital and internal communication plan) is critical for an organization that wants to have innovation at is core. Leadership means «talking-the-talk» AND «walking-the-walk». It means committing (and protecting) resources (time, money, people, equipment) for innovation. How much time does the executive team as a group and individually spend working on innovation? Listening to status reports from others doesn’t count.
