Postcards from the future
Start with clarity &
the undeniable problem
1.
Be careful criticising what has gone before
Work like pirates
2.
The free flow of information helped pirates knock down barriers to innovation

Create a more level playing field for everyone involved in your voyages of innovation
Open your mind, eyes and ears
3.
Socialise your projects, internally and externally

Listen with an open mind. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for clues
Be clear about what you want to achieve
4.

Cultivate leaders that allow risk taking and tolerate a certain amount of failure
Establish reward systems that recognise the capacity to connect, take risks and create
Challenge
the status quo
5.
Allow people the freedom to create ideas that are risky and sometimes a bit daft
Value creativity. Allow time and space for thinking and collaboration
Riff, jazz
& improvise
6.
Give your people the opportunity to contribute in a way that is meaningful for them
Create a sense of common purpose and get people to buy into that vision
Dream of
infinity & beyond
7.

Cultivate leaders that allow risk taking and tolerate a certain amount of failure
Establish reward systems that recognise the capacity to connect, take risks and create
Don’t cultivate a cult of the individual
Show and communicate the benefits of innovation efforts in tangible business commitments
8.
Don’t just brainstorm. Discuss how you implement your plans and ideas too
Don’t label “failures” as “failures”
9.
Define what a “smart failure” looks like and the levels of risk you are prepared to accept
Don’t punish doomed projects and unprofitable products if they are genuine “smart failures”
Don’t forget those near misses
Use doctrines to allow people a certain level of improvisation to make decisions
Ensure the behaviours you are looking to embed flourish when leaders are not present
Make the future part of the furniture
10.
