Many think that it is enough to have a good process in place to succeed with innovation. Having a good innovation process is not a guarantee for sustainable innovation. This is because innovation processes are not enough. The important part is organizational culture.
Favorable organizational culture helps innovation strategy to sustain. Up to 40 percent of CEOs believe that existing organizational culture is the biggest constraint to innovation.
An organizational culture that favors innovation is a culture that provides psychologically safe environments that then facilitate and encourage experimentation, questioning, and failures to become part of the company’s DNA.
Through comprehensive research of the business and innovation scientific literature, we have researched about successful innovation and what are the characteristics of successful innovators. We have identified key success factors that form the basis for outstanding innovation results.

Innovation it is not an end in itself.
Being innovative is a capability that a company needs to master on the three organisational levels: individual, group and organizational.
Many focus on measuring innovation through the innovative output like new products and new solutions. However, being innovative is a way of working in order to generate new products, services, technologies, processes in order to stay competitive in the market in the long run.
To succeed in the long run, all departments need to work together throughout the whole creative process, from initiation until the post-sales. They need to work together and their initial, starting point should be the customer itself; which pain the customer has that the company is solving.
