Singapore’s Innovation Journey
Innovation, like SPRING, is in the air. Creativity is all the rage. Entrepreneurship is on every agenda. But what does it all mean for how we run our organizations, and how do all these different ideas connect to each other? We don’t actually want too many people running around with too many crazy ideas, nor do we want unfocussed fragmentations of our core businesses by over-enthusiastic entrepreneurs. In this article we’ll look at the core capabilities that generate innovation. The experience of Singapore itself in its radical transformation and remarkable success over the past four decades, and research conducted by Straits Knowledge into perceptions of innovation among Singapore managers will serve to guide us along the way.
