Innovation has become the primary force driving the growth, performance, and valuation of companies. One of the biggest issues on the minds of managers and executives alike is how to drive innovation inside their companies—and bring new and better products to market faster.
For most employees today, collaborative, complex problem solving is the essence of their work. These activities— involving the exchange of information, the making of judgments, and a need to draw on multifaceted forms of information exchanges with coworkers, customers, and suppliers—are what fuel the innovation engine inside companies.
