This time, we’ll put Kelley’s Ten Faces of Innovation in the spotlight. First published in 2005, but still growing in popularity, this work focuses on the different roles people can adopt in innovation teams. I’ve created an infographic that is inspired by the work of Kelley.
The Ten Faces of Innovation are: – The Anthropologist – The Experimenter – The Cross-Pollinator – The Hurdler – The Collaborator – The Director – The Experience Architect – The Set Designer – The Caregiver – The Storyteller
By far one of the most interesting books on innovation of the last few years is “Ten Types of Innovation: the discipline of building breakthroughs” by Keeley. At the time of publishing he was director of the firm Doblin, however the firm has recently been acquired by Deloite. The Ten Types of Innovation explain different forms of innovation, bundles in three categories. Because I believe this book should be present on everyone’s desk, I have created an infographic that is inspired by the framework of the Ten Types.
What keeps business leaders up at night? If it’s not their company’s ability to streamline operations and lower costs, it’s whether their teams have the vision to see future opportunities and the flexibility to pursue those opportunities faster and more profitably than competitors.
