In our seventh episode of Futureproofing Now, we take research results gleaned over the last year from our global Corporate Innovation Playbook and rank our top candidates for the business models of the future.  With technology advances, customer acceptance and new propositions, we will mix in some of the traditional corporate paths to wealth creation with some of the newer, value generators. Who will rank in the top 10? And can you take advantage of them? Futureproofing Now will also be asking our panel of business model and innovation luminaries to chime in on where they would place their bets. We’ll also be tackling how executives and change agents can go about switching to or adding business model innovation to their arsenal and how to gain acceptance from boards and management who may see these proposals coming through the front door as a misfitted toy, ugly stepchild or intimidating new tenant.

Futureproofing Now (S #1 Ep. #4) - The Corporate Innovation Playbook
“The 2019/20 Corporate Innovation Playbook” is one of the most comprehensive studies on the pragmatic aspects of getting innovation planned and done inside companies. A smart group of 12 innovators asked: What are the biggest contributors and barriers to mapping out and implementing innovation inside companies? What are companies doing now?  Why? What is their potential impact on their overall business? What will change? What are their unfair challenges and advantages vs. startups? As a preview to the full study's findings, we thought we would engage with innovators who have been in the corporate trenches, as well as collaborators who helped us pull together the study on key preview thoughts and a glimpse at the early results before July. What you'll learn:  INNOVATION VALUE:  What is the importance of innovation by industry?  By company? How has that changed and been defined differently over the past 3-5 years?        TREND ACTION and PROCESS: How do companies currently track trends?

BUSINESS MODELS: What are the most interesting developments leading companies to capture more business value? Bankable business of the future. CULTURE: How does an organization build an innovation culture? Who gets to lead it and how do you lead it? Is there a perfect structure?         CHANGING LANDSCAPE AND TRENDS: What’s on your radar now that wasn’t on your radar 5 years ago in the area of innovation?  METHODS: What are the most popular innovation schools of thought, tools or activities for innovation?  SIZE DIFFERENCES: What are the handicaps vs. how startups apply innovation? What are some of the corporate unfair advantages vs. startups that should be harnessed?  WHO’S DOING IT RIGHT: Are there brands, companies, organizations, groups that are “doing it right”?  EXTERNAL PARTNERS: How do companies leverage external partners to help with innovation?  PREDICTIONS: What are some safe bets and some outlier best guesses for a more innovative future?

Will it be: In the red corner, Agile Innovation  - and its focus on fast iteration, sprints and building the right things or In the white corner, Lean innovation - and its focus on experiments and validating a business model fit or In the black corner, Design Thinking - and its focus on big problem solving exploration and empathy for the customer Join the Futureproofing : Next team, Sean Moffitt and Andrea Kates, in conversation with three leading experts on each school of innovation thought.  What you'll learn: 1. The Three Key Schools of Modern Innovation Explained 2. The Strengths of Each Innovation Approach 3. The Weaknesses of Each innovation Approach  4. When and Where to Ideally Use Each One 5.
