Global leaders and professionals envision an innovative global society, continue to improve interdisciplinary knowledge proficiency, develop cultural empathy, and have a variety of professional experience dots to connect for spurring innovation.
e live in a world where change is the norm, with increasing pace. If we don’t embrace it, accept it, roll with it, or make it happen, we’re not able to run an advanced global society.
It’s important to integrate global knowledge, cultural heritage, and talent diversity into a holistic global innovation system: Innovation Management System includes policies, structures, and programs that innovation managers can use to drive world class innovations. It’s important to integrate worldwide knowledge, information technologies and processes, involve global psychological capital, intellectual capital, and global social capital, harmonize worldwide business relationships, optimize cross-boundary processes to build a truly global organization. An integral global innovation system enables organizations to recognize challenges, understand boundaries, deal with constraints, frictions, and bridge a variety of gaps seamlessly.
An advanced global society has a huge potential to become a highly innovative system in which all sorts of components and ingredients are integrated into global capacity to make a significant impact on societal evolution dynamically. The successful integration will depend on the underlying business relationships between all of the crucial points and how they influence each other in building differentiated business competency. In order to scale up innovation efforts across the globe, orchestrate organizational interrelationship by sharing information, bridging gaps, enforcing empathetic communication, harnessing cross-boundary collaboration, building mutual trust, and encouraging “self-generated” engagement.
It is critical to harness personalization and people-centricity which influences a company’s core strategy: The information era upon us is the age of empathy, choice, and personalization. Innovation happens at the intersection point of people and technology. Thus, people-centricity should be another critical component in the global innovation agenda. As innovation is a critical aspect of the business future and a significantly underutilized competitive advantage. One of the long term goals that companies should achieve is to provide personalized solutions with easy to use interface and personal taste to customers by seeking to understand their wants and needs.
Success in the digital world demands both incremental improvement and transformative breakthrough. One of the biggest benefits is a focus on planning what areas people-centricity, personalization effort should focus on based on strategic alignment and business agility. From the outside-in viewpoint, the customer is the focal point to improve business performance by understanding customers empathetically and developing great products or services to meet their needs. From the inside-out, employees are the focal point to accelerate collective performance. The successful organizations should look at both lenses, build a “business innovation logic” or “creative value chain” between the inputs – intermediate steps – outcomes.
It is also crucial to innovate global potential development and shape an innovation climate: The global society is composed of people from different regions, religions, and cultural differences. The biggest challenge we face as a society is that, throughout the ages, we have had, and still have trouble finding a balance between the new vs. old, black & white; order vs. chao; right vs. wrong; solid vs. flow, opportunity vs. risk, etc. Being global means you expand the horizon, develop global mindset and cultural intelligence, improve interdisciplinary knowledge proficiency, and have a variety of professional experience dots to connect for spurring innovation. People are encouraged to think differently and solve problems innovatively, to shape the culture of innovation, and shape an innovation climate.
Irrespective of where we are from, being a global leader needs to refine knowledge into more unified insight, gain empathy and understand enriched culture heritages, share a profound viewpoint about culture/value perspective, shape the well-blended insight and foresight from a global lens. As a global innovator, understanding the values of worldwide citizen helps to develop vision, empathy, cohesion, abstract various perspectives into global insight based on an updated global perception, build trust across diverse cultures, develop strategic alliance across boundaries, to define global related problems or issues in such a way that a solution emerges through a collaborative approach with innovative flavor and personalized taste.
Innovation can happen anywhere across the global organization and ecosystem. Global leaders and professionals envision an innovative global society, continue to improve interdisciplinary knowledge proficiency, develop cultural empathy, and have a variety of professional experience dots to connect for catalyzing innovation. They understand how to collaborate with stakeholders of all stripes, being able to facilitate and orchestrate global-based conversations to brainstorm ideas and co-solve common problems innovatively.
